…If It Were My Car I Would….

I just told someone over the weekend that statement and it drives me nuts. I cannot tell you how many people over the years have come up to me to admire one of my cars only to say, “well, if it were mine I would…” and they proceed to tell me how they would change things. Finally after years of biting my tongue I got the courage to say the following, “why don’t you buy one and do that.”

Usually I get dead silence and that is what I want. You see I bought this exact car this year only in a dark blue with white stripes. The car is amazing in all ways but I have also ran into Mr. ‘If it were my car’ many times already. How frustrating. I certainly never openly criticized someone else’s car.

If they ask my opinion I give it. But, to walk up cold and just start telling me what you think I should have done while you drive a 81 Dodge Miranda, I want to rip your ears off. I know other hobbyists have been through this as well. I have been told the stories and there seems to be no good solution to the guys who don’t own a fast muscle car but want to tell you how to do it.

My advice is simple. Usual these people are well-meaning and really want a vehicle like this themselves. If so, start working towards that vehicle. It may take you years and lots of hard work and saving, but it means you can get the vehicle of your dreams and that’s the point here. Then you can have a queue of people telling you how you should change your car.
