It might be a redneck problem...
Here in Houston it's not bad at all...people dig my car...and you should see the look of awe they give us when we're all cruising...

HOWEVER once in a while I *enjoy* making my way out to other more redneck areas just to see the pro-domestic rednecks get all hot and bothered by my car. The usual happens...they make some cheesy remark to their I'll walk or drive over and ask them if they have a problem with my car. (around here you'll find that these guys are all full of hot air...all talk)

Either two things will happen:

1. They'll think it's a normal import that I pimped/r!ced out in which case I'll explain about the car and how it's stock (for the most part) and it's racing history...and end up gaining respect.

2. They're real jerks so I simply challenge the f-bodies and mustang drivers to an autocross and challenge the "rough and tough" truck drivers to a rallycross. I've even offered to pay their entry fees...none have taken me on. I make my way outta there while they're looking confused...before they realize I made them look like idiots in front of they're girlfriends and decide to tag-team my butt...

Like I said...they're full of hot air and completely put too much faith in American V-8s and NOT in learning to drive or expand their horizons)

Anyway...once in awhile when I'm in need of some viceral entertainment I'll make my way to Tomball, Conroe, Huntsville, etc...(for Houston people)
I must also say that I've been seeing more and more imports in these smaller towns...nice thing to see.
