The most common statement I hear is, "I or my parents, had one exactly like this but it was a hard top and different color".  Often the year is wrong too.


 I agree.  I think I've head that one at every show 'n shine I've ever been to.  The worst was after the guy spending 10 minutes describing how my car was identical to his first car he finally remembered his car was a Ford, a Fairlane he thought.   But other than that, it was the same as mine...

It's bad if you own any finned Mopar from 1957-60. Every one was "Christine"..

"My Uncle up north has (3) of those"*

* a "storyteller" I worked with used to always say this.

OK, I'll bite with some new ones...

Guy was looking under the hood of the LeMans and turned to his friend and said that's no 454, that a 350 maybe even a 327, I interjected politely then he started arguing with me. Not worth it so I left.

Here's how my engine looks:

Next my Corvette is idling at the curb and it really throbs, I'm putting the roof under the tonneau cover, guy walks up and says Nice Car, I bet its got a V6 eh!?
