    Ok,
    Anyone else have weird people suddenly and violently changing lanes to get behind your car while driving and take pictures?
    I drive normally, and I'm a not a kid, so my driving habits are safe, at least when someone is watching or amongst traffic so I don't get it.
    This one guy in a white Nissan Sentra was waving his arms and taking pictures, then pulls along side of me and is quiet as a church mouse. Go figure.

    I was cruising to the beach last summer and stopped at a traffic light in a small Eastern Shore town. As the light turned green I moved forward when the driver of an oncoming car leaned out the window with his cell and took my pic!

    Thre've been a considerble number of lane-changers who got behind me and took pictures. Usually followed by pass and a thumbs-up gesture, sometimes a shouted "Love your plate!". I suppose there could have been violent changes, but if so, I didn't notice.24537394171_35d48bd710_c.jpg (New-car photos pending)

    The only people who follow me around are like minded people who are trying to avoid slow priuses hogging both the left and middle lanes.

    When I drive this people get out at stop lights to take pics. Forget trying to stop for gas. IMG_0802.JPG

    I've had kids yelling out the window asking me to rev it, and others who seem to think that overtaking me on the highway is some sort of victory, at a time when I have the cruise control in 6th gear, lol.

    65 Cobra - love your car, which kit is that? (assumption made)

    I hesitate to tell people because there are so many really poorly built cars out there. It is a factory five, I built it myself using only new parts.

    Obviously, the first question I get is "is it real"? I tell people yes, it is a real car. You can touch it, drive it and it is not a figment of our imagination.

    Never in my 18 GT. My 17 Challenger Hellcat is a different story. I've seen lots of people taking pictures.

    All the time. It was far more common when the S550 first came out though. As more Mustangs have been sold I think people are just getting used to seeing them.

    Agreed. Time for a dash cam though.
