Had to stop for a cup of tea.
I know this week i have had my winge on folks trying to race or show of there
none skyline rides to me but why the verbal abuse.
The bulk for people are great and often get looks as i drive by them or great car from people walking by and even people looking at the car in the carpark.
And it is nice to have something that you enjoy and other people sometimes you do feel smug and why not it cost enough all round so for a few seconds of a smug smile its worth it.Well until
5 mins ago i was outside trying my old mesh grill from my a32 maxima up to my bumper when i heard look at that car great a skyline.When other voices joined in by saying F---ing S-it they are bag of rubbish and its auto.Then hey give you scarp money for that piece of junk this went on for about 3 mins abuse wise.Why
And again i was washing my car the other day when i heard a bloke walk by talking out loud saying who the f-ck does she think she is washing that car think shes something special does she as so on.
Well i have a few ideas why folks feel the need to do this but even if i hated cars eg a scooby but i dont walk by folks who have them and call them or there car iam glad we all have different rides or it would be boring people buy what they like and my friends just bought a zafira not my cup of tea but it is nice and caters him and good for him if thats what he wants but i just dont feel the need to walk the streets shouting off at every car i didnt like or was jealous about.
One more winch whilst i finish my tea if one more person scatches my car on purpose i will scream.And when foks have to park next to me in a carpark could they leave more than a ten inch gap between doors.
teas all gone back to cleaning.thx for making a winge area.

The answer I am afraid is simple in the extreme. Small minds. I don't think it has anything to do with your car particularly.
Some people hate some stuff - but these days they seem quite comfortable to let you know all about it.
I think in the old days there used to be an expression which went along the lines of "Live and let live".
Now it's more a case of "If you are a little different I am going to smash your farking face in" etc.
Shame really, and it seems to be getting worse. Case of stroppy parents birthing stroppy kids who birth stroppier kids, and so on.
Makes me genuinely sad to hear stuff like this.
:shakehead: :disappointed:

I wouldnt let people with small minds (and genitals) bother you. Some people just dont seem to know what manors or respect is these days, i despair i really do!

i would say the majority of it is jealousy. they dont have one so are having a pop at you about it. really sad it is indeed and sorry to hear you have been having to put up with it.

had this loads of times for no reason, got the 1 fingered salute from some stupid chav in an MGZR the day i bought it, bloody unbelievable! used to get "your wheels are sh** mate" from everyone in crap cars.. its not so bad now because they are more common around my town, the abuse is probably spread around the rest of the SO's equally so if i hear any brainless numpteys throwing random abuse at me because of my car i just put it down to them being sad pathetic lifeless jealous losers and wink or smile at them :D and roar off in the beast happy as larry

Not happened to me yet. Hope it doesn't. I don't react too well to unfounded criticism. Ahem.

:nutkick:

There is not a car out there that I would openly criticise. Novas and Corsas with big funny wings and weird pointjobs - good luck to them. All fine by me. Not my taste, but I would never ram it in their faces. I wouldn't even say even to myself, "what a carp car". Just not worth the effort.

mine was spikestripped tuesday night and egg'd twice. cost me 30quid (which aint terrible I know) to have the puncture repaired next morning. spent the next day cleaning hardened egg off the car and I now have 2 nice bulletwound spots where the eggs impacted the laquer :(
unbelievable.

That is bad oh dear sorry to hear of your bad experience makes mine look nothing.
Might only be 30 quid but its your money and for something you shouldnt have had to pay for and once again its the head pi-- off that why folks can be like that when you havent done anything.Again sorry to hear about your bad experience.
Luckly i have only had my tyre on this car let down and not spiked yet i woke up to the alarm going off and found my tyre had been let down.
And my 200sx had the egg treatment and i know what you mean takes that bit of paint off.But again why.
I think its worse because its something you wouldnt do so why should it happen to you.
Lets hope when there time comes there punishment is full of spikes and eggs and people shouting abuse.
Then again some people pay for that.

i can beat that ^ :( had my car resprayed after saving up for ages and the night it came back, it looked luvly and shiny and some kind sir put a deep keymark that can't be touched up all the way from the door to the back wheel arch
Jealous scum, to shout abuse is one thing as its funny to laugh at how sad their lives are to let it concern them so much but to attck someones pride an joy for no reason should be by penalty of castration :D

Just looked at your pics in your online garage, I think your SL looks very nice and i'm 100% everyone else here would agree. So what does that mean? Well it means **** em. :cheers:

Hurling abuse is one thing but damaging your car is another. I'd just use their face to damage their car. "I don't know how it happened officer, he just tripped over and repeatedly hit his head on the windscreen" :rofl:

Death to vandals. And f**k people who have a problem with Skyline's and Skyline owners. I work hard to afford my car and the other nice things I own.

It's pretty rare to get abuse from other car owners though. Even the chav scum around about Aberdeen can appreciate a Skyline and what it can do to their Nova! :)

Wall of text crits you for 22234, you die.

Yes it's frustrating when people do that kind of thing, but see it for what it is and let it wash over you.

It's not worth answering back cos you will probably find a key mark down your car, just be safe in the knowledge you have a lovely car that you enjoy owning and to hell with what anyone else thinks. :cheers:
