It was a very warm and sunny day here today. I had to pick my daughter up from elementary school, and I arrived with the top down. This is the first time picking her up from school in this car, which I only bought last week. The teacher is familiar with me as my elder daughter was also her student too.

Anyway, I pull up to the pickup area, and the teacher is standing there with a megaphone, directing kids to their parents' cars. "K***! Your father is here in a really cool looking car!", and waved wildly at me. My daughter got into the car, grinning from ear to ear.

This. Was. Just. Awesome!

Cute story, thank you for sharing. Just had flashbacks to my youth when we asked Mom to drop us off 3 blocks from school so the rich kids wouldn't see the beater of a car our family had. :)

I was driving through my neighbor hood the other day past a group of kids walking down the street and one shouts "nice car"! On more then one occasion my wife or I got a similar reaction from strangers out at stores. :)

Great Story. I must agree. This is the first car I have ever owned that people I don't know shout things like "Nice car!" and "I like your car!".

It IS awesome.
