No, I that would fall under the Justifiable Homicide by Reason Of Insanity, which means the law would allow you to do the culprit in because the guy that scratched the car must be crazy.

Back in 1996, I bought a new Chevy 4x4 pickup. Two weeks later we drove it to Kenora, Ontario for a fly-in fishing trip. All week long the guys teased me that someone was going to key my new truck. When we got back, someone had - scratched "F**k You" right down to the metal on the passenger door. Yeah, I would have hurt them bad.

There's actually a group of people, well i guess you can call them a gang, and they destroy hummers. Bunch of insane tree-hugging prius-driving freaks who think everyone with a hummer is out to destroy the world. So when they see one they'll key it, break the mirrors, etc..

You know what is so ignorant about the whole idea, they have no idea how much the guy drives the Hummer! The selfish pieces of crap are possible driving their gas sipping Toyotas further every year using more fuel and polluting the air MORE than the Hummer they are vandalizing, they have no idea. Around here there are LOTS of people who drive 50, 70, 90 or more miles to work EACH way in their gas sipping cars while I can drive to work every day in my 15 miles per gallon Gran Sport using WAY less fuel than they do! But I am evil for driving it huh?

Great Thread & Topic and one I know very well being someone who goes through performance vehicles like the seasons change here in NY

It's very strange how peoples perception change with certain vehicles and I find the older ones bring smiles to most. I drove around for years and years with a 9 Second Daily Driver (Ford Lightning) and didn't get a single look from people on the road or at a car show. But last year when I was cruising the street with a 72 ProStreet Nova (Yenko Trubute) I dont think there was a single person that didn't acknowledge the vehicle with a smile or wave as I passed them.

So to answer the question I happen to like the attention it brings and people appreciating it. Being a life time car guy I enjoy chewing the fat with strangers about my vehicles at car shows or a red light. Of course the other side of that is you cant do anything without being noticed (and in my case heard) and that is a major problem with my current vehicle. But I still dig the 24/7 attention, smiles, & thumbs up.

I guess it is kind of showy

I took my car to Home Depot one morning because it was early, and I knew there wouldn't be but a few people around. I parked way out away from anything, and I was only inside for 5 minutes. I come out, and there is an old beat up minivan parked right next to me. After a long, tense walk out to my car, I find nothing wrong. Never again.

I also took it to a very low level car show one time, mainly as a reveal to a lot of friends a family. It was obvious that most of these people had no clue about car show behavior. Adults and kids alike were standing on my running boards, putting their hands all over it, and even trying to open the door. Thank goodness for shaved handles. I kept telling my dad, "What makes these people think it's okay for them to do this?" I went out to the parking lot and tried to do any of that to their VW wagon, they would be like, "What the?!" That was a stressful, long day. Never again.

It's sad when you are afraid to let your car out of your site for fear that some jealous scumbag will do something to it.
It is shame that some people don`t know how to behave in cruise nights or car shows.
My friend has a all original -67 Camaro and he was in the cruise night gathering and saw one drunken bastard hanging around his car and fall down and hit the fender of the Camaro with his elbow and dented itThat drunk was russian so my friend did not get anything from him
He does not come to that parking lot with the Camaro anymore

One other time some drunken russian *******s were sitting in the back seat of a Caddy and you guessed right it was not their Caddy, the owner sees them sitting in his car drinking beer and went to the car and threw them out.

One older gentleman were in some old car happening and saw a little kid with a grandfather standing in the running boards of his -27-28 Chrysler, kid eating icecream and when asking his grandpa where to put the icecream wrappwes grandpa told him to throw them inside the chrysler

I remember one time my younger brother got drunk and threw up in my Firebird...pretty sure he wasn't Russian.

As far as the Grandpa telling the kids to throw their ice cream wrapper in the old Chrysler...well now you know where the stupidity starts...stupidity breeds stupidity, hopefully Grandpa's off Spring that created those children has a strong partner to break the cycle.

I hate to think how many times people have asked if they can take a photo of my Range Rover. It's a little different.



Or my old 911 Porsche.



And my newest addition isn't even registered yet but still plenty of people have stopped me when I have it on the trailer for a photo.





No one has ever spat at them or given me a hard time.

i dont know if this is reverse snobbery or not.
but from the sounds of it i am glad i dont own a beautiful,hyper expensive show car.
no taking it to the corner store for smokes. let alone actually smoking in it.
never leave it unattended.
constant worry if it might rain etc.
while i like looking at them.
even if i could afford it.
owning one doesnt sound like much fun.
