Isn't that funny, a common interest like that really works between us don't it?

I had a funny experience back a few months ago. I was making a left had turn at a four way stop sign. In the lane to my left that I was turning in front of was a late model Porsche Turbo Carrera and the guy almost went out of turn, moving ahead after I had started to go. I said "Hold on there Porsche dude, Rambler dude is going first". And as I drove past him, our drivers windows just feet part he smiled and gave me a thumbs up. LOL

So this morning I found myself in the exact same place and as I drove past him he gave me the "You the man" finger point. LOLOL This dude sitting in a Porsche with a suit on gives me the "You the man" sign, he helped my day start out on a high note, I had smile the rest of the way to work.
