"There is no admiration or respect or even acknowledgement. VW guys don't know what to do with us, and Porsche guys think we're fakes. You're a rock-star at a stoplight and a outlier at a car show."
Don't mind Stan. The pressures of being a potentate over his own republic just make him grumpy at times. My experience has been that car guys love Speedsters, fiberglass or steel, and even the local Porsche guys invited me along on their cruises. Heck, the 356 Registry had a bunch of cars at the Cars on Kiawah several years ago and I was invited to join them.
Of course that could have been my winning personality.
