I have a Viper yellow 79 Spirit with no badging on it and I get alot of "What is that?" I take it as a compliment just because in the car shows and cruise nights that I have been too and being surrounded by Camaro's, Mustangs, Chevelle's, Nova's, Corvette's and numerous "Fast & Furious" wannabe's it's great to have a car thats different. I bought this car to be different after being on the verge of buying a last generation Trans Am.  
Attending many car shows and cruise nights I have always enjoyed the cars that were off the beaten track of what is usually out there. These owners are generally are more creative and resourcefull which shows in their cars.
 
It's good to be different!

had a guy come over last night at the Bass Pro Shops show and while putting a flyer in my car said ''nice vega''  Grin my wife promptly corrected him Cool
 
then someone else was asking if it use to be 4wd  undecided  
 
i also like the not so common cars Derek, everyone's got a mustang or camaro in there yard now a days.
 
a couple guys were disagreeing with me when i told them its a spirit, they said no its a gremlin and didn't know it was mine i just happen to walk back to the car and heard them, then my boy and i started messin with them and walked around it like we were checking it out and my boy goes ''i know what it is its a Dodge Pinto'' you should have seen them look at us Grin

A bunch of years back, a dad was telling his kid all about AMC's at a car show I attended with one of our 79 AMX's. He told about the 390 and 4 speed his buddy had, and how fast it was and AMC made a 4x4 car, so the kid looks at the AMX, [with big huge N-50-15 in the rear, and some pizza cutter front tires]and says, so like this thing is 4 wheel drive then? To which his dad says yeah, my buddies was made the year before Grin Grin Grin I just left well enough alone.  Grin Grin SH

I got Coronet-ed the other day.  I just cheerily said "Nope, AMC Rebel".  You should have seen the guy's jaw drop.  It was like I had said it was a Maserati or something.  What's funny is, the person I was there to talk to decided to one-up me by interjecting that she had just sold her 67 Corvette to her daughter.  Yeah, I don't mind someone having to pull out the split-window Corvette to one-up the G-car.  That's alright.
 
Personally, I don't think Rebels look anything like Coronets.

So I'm at the gas station fueling up in my '73 Jav/AMX, which is always a real PITA. This guy pulls up to the traffic light on a loud ass Harley. While waiting for the light he sees me and starts screaming to his girl on the back of his bike...HEY...LOOK...IT...IT's...IT'SA...AAAAH...MATADOR!!! Shocked  MATADOR??? That's a first! Everybody else pumping gas is looking at me like why is this guy screaming at you?  undecided So now he's sitting over there gloating because in his mind he remembered it like it was yesterday. My guess is yesterday, just like today, he was stoned!  Grin Is a Matador considered even being close to a humpster? NOT! The flying brick, Oleg Cassini, and opera windows be darned! This aint no round tracker, don't he know this does more than turn left? My P-code won every Trans Am race single handedly? Cheesy I just shook my head. When his light turned green of course, he had to give me the pipes, which confirmed in my mind that he was an idiot. I supposed I got the pipes because I didn't run over there and give him a high five or something for nailing it! In hindsight, I really feel sorry for his girl.  cry She must have really bad luck picking men! Roll Eyes

I hate the harley pipes.  If I drove around in my car with open pipes I'd be ticketed in a heartbeat.   I have, when driving by a harley, open the electric cutouts and hit it.
Just to get back for all the times I need to listen to those awful sounding things.
