    I was stopped at an intersection in my 1958 Edsel Villager wagon waiting at a traffic light. There was an older pick up with a couple guys in it stopped on the opposite side. When the light turned green, we were passing by each other the passenger in the pick up sat up outside the window and yelled out over the roof " It wasn't a mistake!" An insult? I thought it was hilarious!
    I was going to the bar to pick up a 6-pack and I suspect those two had already downed one.

    I was at a car club winter show back in 1973 proudly standing close to my 39 Ford Deluxe coupe when a man came up to me with the comment You Really F--Ked that up. I found out later he owned a really nice restored 39 deluxe coupe. Life went on.

  11. That was so nice of him to say. I'm sure he felt all warm inside and told his friends with great pride about his good deed. What a nice man.:rolleyes:

    If ''cute'' and ''badass'' are things people say about your car, they probably aren't insulting it.
    Brace yourself for when it actually happens.

    This past summer, I worked on my car ('47 Plymouth). A friend and I were getting some electrical issues straighten out and cleaning up the engine. So, I could really drive it for the first time. My step-daughter's boyfriend kept making stupid comments, stuff like "You should gut that thing and turn it into a stock car.", "That would be fun in a demo derby.", and "Wish I had that to plow into people that piss me off." Tried talking to him about what I was doing. He was a car guy ran hobby stock with his dad. He just didn't care, no filter. I am glad they broke up in fall for other reasons.

    Several months ago when I was walking into Lowes a woman said she liked me truck. I thanked her, told her it keeps me out of trouble, and said at least you didn't say it was cute. She then proceeded to throw her sister who was walking a couple of steps ahead of her under the bus by saying "she did" We all had a good laugh about that.

    I was walking from my '55 truck into Home Depot when a guy walking the other way said "Where's Lassie?"

    At a cruise in in my green 55 buick 2dr special.... Guy came up to me in his Jiffy Lube uniform and told me he'd like my car better if it was in better shape and black.... I told him I'd probably like him a little better if he was in better shape and black too.... He just walked off.... haha

    At a family style, downtown, block all the roads, car show in Haverhill a man was explaining to his children that "this is a hemi engine" I walked around the car and said "sir, I apologize but I just want you to know that this is a flathead engine". He was embarrassed but they all hung around and listened to me while I explained the differences. 20211102_201341.jpg

    Maybe not an insult...but if I had a dollar for every time someone called my '40 Ford, a Willys. I could have a nice steak dinner. Gene.

    The correct answer to that question is always "Timmy fell down the well and she ran home to get help."

    Not an insult , but shows what the general public knows , on more than one occasion while in my T with a tunnel ram , an onlooker has asked about my " blower , supercharger , huffer " when politely told that's not what it is , one had the balls to tell me I needed to learn about hotrods !

    Not an insult per say.....maybe to intelligence. Had a guy walk over at a Sonic, poke his head in the window and ask me "what year is this?" I tell him it's a 30. He says "1930?":confused: I had no comeback.

  29. LOL "my cousin uesed to have one just like it except it was a Ford." I cannot even count the times I have heard that one even when I was in a Ford.

    I think the funniest one was a guy pulling up in front of my house ans asking what year Model T that is. Asking about thise heap.
