Took me quite a bit of time and perseverance to actually gét one here: Appearantly there are not too many car guys with a sense of humour about their car.

I think it is a humorous wink to all to not take it all too seriously, starting with myself 😎

I think most have a sense of humor by not taking the car or the owner seriously.  Its different strokes and its all about the kind of attention you seek of having others laugh with you or at you.  I remember one time I had to attend a professional certification coarse for 6 weeks in New Jersey and brought along the Spyder in its modified form. I felt out of place with a flamboyant car when I was leaving for the day and having those attending not taking me seriously like Im some kind of stupid boy ricer trash that didn't grow up. I should have just brought my Honda and become less of a distraction. Unfortunately stigmas are real thing even in the automotive world, it just depends on the company you are around.

I attended a professional training course in LA recently, and I got looks when I pulled up in my Spyder. But good looks, surprisingly. Just for what it's worth.

The first real hate I got for my car:

There is a small, upscale complex near the theatre I usually work at. One day I pulled up in the Spyder and parked near said complex. An elderly gentleman was walking down the sidewalk stopped and stared at me while I was getting out of the car. Generally when this happens I get positive feedback.... And I thought I was getting positive feedback from him as well when he said "So you're the guy with *that* exhaust." Misjudging, I chuckled... Then hear " we really don't appreciate it, you know. Mother's and children need to get their sleep around here."

Lol! Maybe they shouldn't choose to live next door to a performance arts center then!

I just told him "you should've heard it before I tried to quiet it down." And left. 

The real kicker is there is at least a dozen different vehicles in the area that are louder than mine. And if he thinks I'm too loud at 3k rpm, he best be glad he's never heard my car at 8k rpm...

I always get compliments on my car.  The closest thing to shade getting cast on it, is when some ignoramus says "nice Miata".

 

I like all small convertibles, it's sort of my thing.  I like having two seats, a steering wheel, a motor and four wheels... and not much else.  It's a raw driving experience which I greatly enjoy

My car isn't the best looking and is rarely clean, but with the exception of only a couple.... When ppl bother to say something about it it's positive.
