have you ever been "hit" on in your car??

there i was in the drive thru lane waiting for my vanilla custard and theis woman pushes the window open:
what year is your benz?
are you going to restore it?
how long have you had it?
howmuch did it cost?

when i got to the price it went like this..."well this one was 1600 but it has warts. my wifes was 3200"....the window closed abruptly.

Wrong answer. Sould have said something else so you get to give her your vanilla custard.

Some young fat guy "gave it to you" did he? Also with $17 too. You are on your way to being a regular Deuce Bigalow with the guys.

and its gonna stay that way!! i refuse to be responsible for unhappy marriages that could result on this forum.

here is a story i can tell you though.....i was wandering thru historic century market looking for my wife when i bumped into a fella also with a cart. he said sorry i am looking for my wife. me too i said. well what does your wife look like he asked. i responded, she is about 5'10" thick chestnut hair and watery green eyes that makes you go limp in the knees, her legs fit nicely into her tight jeans and her wide lips are softer than room temerature butter. what does your wife look like i asked. never mind he said lets look for your wife.

hey aklim.....you are in chgo right? go look at the 124 out on the edens extension near 43. it is on a high stand at a boneyard.

I suppose you could call this hit on - we declined the invite. In 1982 a friend and I took his 1978 300CD to San Francisco late one Saturday evening so we could hand-deliver a resume in time for a Monday deadline. It was a perfect warm summer night. The sunroof was open, the City was alive, and we decided to go cruising. Somewhere along the usual sea of baser humanity on Broadway we stopped for a traffic light when the car rocked violently, and an effeminate voice from above boombed, "Hi Guys!". A rough whiskered and amply proportioned fellow, wearing white fairy-princess dress, had lurched up on to the car and lunged his body, arms first, about a third of the way through the open sunroof for a greeting. Well we were startled, the light changed, and we slowly proceded on course for about fifty feet, before he bid farewell. So there it was, picture it, a 300CD with a burly fairy princess's torso, butt, and legs, sticking out the sunroof, wallowing down Broadway. I'll never forget it....

Hey! I saw that same guy in 1995, down at the Embarcadero. White 'Mary Janes', frilly white dress, a cute parasol and a heavy FIVE O'CLOCK SHADOW[. Eeeewww!

I don't know if this is classified as being "hit on", but since I got the 300D, I've gotten more looks lately. About a month after I got it, I was at church one night leaving choir rehearsal, and some girls, same age as me who are in the choir with me, out of the blue, came up to me and asked me if I could give them a ride home. I didn't even talk to them very much in the past, but they're friendly, and naturally, I said yes. I'm thinking the car had something to do with it. They never asked me the same question when I was in the Lexus, Caddy, or SD, but after I got the D, they did. Interesting.

The last time I was "hit on" in my car I was driving a Corvair. I think it's because the steering wheel nut is a bit cracked and tarnished
