Yes...If I come across someone who LOVES the car, but has never seen one
in person, I often offer a picture in the car, or at least to sit in it.

The smile on the person's face is great!  (and I remember a kid about 10
years ago who wished he had that kind of opportunity  <hint hint hint...
;)>

	We have had our share of crazy stories like I see on here
too.....and also some fun ones.....we take the D to some local and near
by shows for
kicks....Sit in our lawn chairs back a ways and just WATCH.   Bettye
says it
blows her mind, the attention it gets.   I usually start out with
everything
closed for an hour or so....THEN I pop the doors and sometimes the trunk
and
engine lid.   She got a kick out of counting the people looking directly
AT
the car...not with their backs to it!!   One time she counted a max of
21
and almost always there would be 8 to 10.  One time, next to us was a
Vette that was a dream....even had mirrors underneath for you to see how
great it
was ....usually at the same time he had 2 or 3 looking at it.   Almost
made
me feel bad, as obviously he had put a TON of work into his, and all I
did was wash mine and drive it there!  Then I usually get 1st place
Unrestored Original.  Ho Ho.  These are car shows that bring around 350
cars.  There were 82 entered in MY class at this particular show.  There
is nothing quite like gull wings and stainless steel to attract
attention!!
	People seem to always be courteous and respect the car, although
there are always those who need to be sure it will leave fingerprints if
they touch
it!   Many times we ask the kids, (or parents) if they would like to sit
in
it and have their picture taken.   Several times I have taken pictures
myself, got their address and mailed them a copy of the picture.  Fun
Fun.
