    Corvettes are so cool

    Downtown Anchorage
    Some moron in a flashy, brand new red Corvette with T-Tops
    Blasting super cheesey 80s music
    I pulled up next to him at a 4 way stop, assumed my super cool track stand posture, and said, "Hey Dude, nice car."
    He turned down the music and gave me a dirty look and said (all tough-guy like), "What did you say?"
    So I shot back, "Nice car, small weiner?"
    He glared at me and turned his stereo back up to 11, revved it & left me in a smoke cloud.
    What a tool.

    I was buzzing behind a 60's mg driven by one of the beautiful people and I said, "nice little car" and this started the woman to beaming. She said thanks and went on her way.

    i have an MG. but it's in Ohio. and it's from the 70s. and I'm probably not "one of the beautiful people".

    T-Top? If it was new, it wasn't a T-Top. Removable roof panel, maybe, but not a T-Top. T-Top has a bar down the middle. Like on the Trans-Ams with the dead chicken on the hood.

    I didn't miss that part, but I also don't quite see where that makes him a "moron" and a "tool". If it were me I'd probably just ignore the dude in the 'vette, but it kind of sounds like the OP was itching for a confrontation.

    I cant belive Im even going here... but...

    I believe the poster opened up with a compliment about the car... the driver didnt hear him, assumed it was a smart ass remark and got a little "tough" with his response... so then the poster gave him back just what he wanted to hear. Its cheaky and ironic.

    Saw a guy taking photos of his (obviously new) Jaguar XKE in the park. Thought I'd be kind, since he was clearly quite proud.

    Me: Nice car.

    Guy: (flatly) I know.

    Hate to introduce a new stereotype (and he wasn't fat) but there's just something about guys in Jags…

    Ive just been called a "F*ggot" too many times by guys in expensive cars. Anger always gets the better of me and I yell something equally as moronic back. Then they slow down to "play" and realize the paint job on their car isn't worth it... been ignoring it more lately.. so Im on the mend.

    I was sincere when I said, "nice car", but that look and attitude he gave me changed my original statement. It probably was a removable roof...I'm not really a car guy so I didn't pay much attention.

    It's a bit of an inside joke (nice car, small weiner or huge, jacked up 4x4 small weiner) at work too, so I chuckled inside.

    im with va cyclist on this one... whats wrong with telling him you complimented his car? maybe he's perceptive and knew you were going to be an a$$... you proved him right.

    Maybe it's just a Corvette thing.

    What's the difference between a Corvette and a cactus?

    (the Corvette has the ****** on the inside)

    That's hilarious. I'd would have never thought to say it like that, so matter-of-factly.

    Cause, I mean, we all know it's a fact. The penis thing...

    that wasnt very nice, 165

    i agree with him... maybe the prck is on the bike...he already admits he thinks dudes in sport cars have small weiners... his "inside joke"... so why do we assume his delivery was sincere? it prob. came out snide.. and obviously antagonistic...to which the dude was not feelin...and the biker dude proved him right in his first assumption..

    so now one more person hates bikers.. yay.. the world is such a better place... this is why i hate critical mass...the entitlement is nausiating

    win some, lose some.

    This whole situation could have been avoided if everyone bought economical cars or took public transportion, OR (preferably) rode a bike.
    It is obviously the car owner's fault as he was driving a nice car, which DaveIT thought invited a compliment. If the car was a 1988 Honda Civic rusted to the core, I am sure this never would have happened.

    ps> never a masser. I hate Maoists...

    i do that when people compliment my bike. mostly because i already know my bike is nice, thankyou, i don't need your approval. same thing when people tell me i have good balance when i'm trackstanding at a light.
