When neighbours become good friends

In a lot of places in the UK we don't really know our neighbours. I don't think I've gotten to know mine properly in the past three houses I've lived in. How that changes when you own an SLK! Since having mine two of my neighbours have struck up conversations with me. They turn out to be very nice people and we had a very pleasant spending time chatting.

Has anyone else noticed this SLK phenomenon?

LOL. Good for you. I make a point of knowing my neighbours, to avoid undesirables before buying or renting and for community spirit after moving in.

My neighbor bought a convertible after seeing mine, but he chose an MX 5. His daughter bought a Peugeot "plug ugly" convertible too.
