Two things

1. I went to a classic Porsche dealership show with the Spyder. I told everyone that it was a replica upfront and the guys with the authentic 356s actually loved the Spyder. One guy actually trailered his car because he doesn't drive it at all. The newer Porsche guys are the ones who turn up their noses more often than not. When I go to CnC, the Spyder gets way more attention than the super-cars and the guys wearing slip-on loafers with their car's emblem on them. That's where I get the most hate. By the way, the replica won a trophy at the classic Porsche show.

2. I was at another show (cruise really) where this guy who owned a classic 911 was asking questions. The whole time I was talking to him, he was stroking my car gently with his fingers. It was super-creepy and the funny thing was, I have no issues telling people to stop touching my car or saying pretty much anything. However, I was so distracted by what he was actually doing that the inner-monologue in my head stopped me from saying anything at all. After I noticed what he was doing, I said to myself......... "is he doing what I think he is doing?", "why is he doing that?", "who does that? Especially when they own a classic car and know the rules?", "is that sexual assault of a car?". I wasn't even paying attention to what he was saying and he was gone by the time I was done processing it.
