My 5 yr old son and I went to a old burger joint around here for lunch. Place does a lot of car shows, so there are usually quite a few car guys there.
We parked in a corner spot, fully in view of the counter, where we sat. While we were eating, we could here the guys behind the counter talking about the car, and wondering who owned it. At the same time, just about everyone that came in commented on it to there friend/GF/wife etc. Overall, more than a dozen people noticed it and spoke about it in the 30 minutes we were there. I've never had a car that garnered that much attention, Jetstream Blue Z06 included.
Felt great, and was a lot of fun!

Totally agree. I was heading in the VCoupe to get gas today and was following a pretty nice Harley. Being into motorcycles as well (GSXR-1000) I appreciate a nice bike in whatever form it comes in. Anyway, he pulls into the same gas station. I go about filling the tank and I hear someone coming up behind me saying "nice car". It was the Harley guy. We spent the next ten minutes or so talking about the engineering details of the V (he was an industrial engineer).
Like I said, totally agree with the attention the car gets. I've had the top/factory tuner version of several cars and this one by far gets the most attention.

I've gotten many thumbs up and compliments and gas stations.

I'm with you on this one. I still can't get over how much attention the V gets.

I love going to the Sonic drive inn in mine...though the guys seem to dig it much more than the ladies...unfortunate yet awesome side effect...damn I love this car! Gotta find out where the gear head chicks hang out :-)

I have the V wagon and I get stopped every time I fill up the gas tank. I had no idea this car would get so much attention... constantly. No matter where or what I'm doing, people are stopping me and asking questions. It's kinda cool... I get more attention in this car than my 997 Turbo Cab (painted orange) did.
I can't imagine having the coupe... I mean.. seriously... it's a wagon! lol
Lol and I thought its strange when ppl stoped me and talking about the car
But the funny part that most ppl ask me what kind of car is this ? Is it bat man car ?

Happens all the time at my local hangout, Hog Wild in Placerville, California. Of course all the locals know me because I also bring the Track-T.
