I was at the gas station the other day and another younger guy started asking me all sorts of stuff about my car (How I like it, how it handles, etc.). Then he pointed to the ///M badge on the hatch and asked me if I added it myself.

I do admit its part of the appeal of the car for me, driving something that most people don't know much about. I'm not sure when it became okay to ask how much it costs though. Really? Nobody ever taught you that was rude?

One of my buddies calls it the 'Ace and Gary' car which I do not appreciate, although it is kind of funny.
My little brother calls mine the ace and gary car as well. I tell him I'm juwt getting married for cover

I was parked at Home Depot today between an Audi TT Roadster and a new model Mazda Miata. We all arrived back at our cars at approximately the same time and the Miata guy just nodded and took off. The Audi guy and I laughed and spent a good 15 minutes comparing very nice cars.

This is also one of my favorite memories of the car. Blind32 and I met up for the Dallas Cars and Coffee not even a week or so after I bought her. It was just our 2 M Coupes among a sea of 2002s, Mustangs (old and new) a GT40 painted like a cop car, a lambo, and so on...and our cars were getting a lot of attention!!!!!

When I first got her back 'home', SOOO many people would stop and stare. Just rolling up to the store everyone's faces, jaws dropped. I think that's the best compliment I could ever get. They never get old!

Not so much a "what kind of car is that" story, but more of a story about just what a interesting car we all have.

Just this morning, at 6:45AM getting gas for Exhaust 'Fest, I pulled in next to a guy in a '63 split window Corvette. (Wouldn't you know it my Iphone was at home charging! ) What a beautiful car--silver, red interior, perfect showroom condition and fully restored. I wanted to find out more, but after he'd answered a couple of my questions all this guy could do was ask questions about my car. Key comment from him was "classic look--just a classic look, beautiful". It's kind of nice to get that kind of attention from someone who drives a exemplary piece of American car history.

Dude, Like I really pulled out my phone at a stop light like a little groupie bitch. As far as I am concerned, really doesn't matter if you think it didn't happen.

LMAO yep, got it. Just remember we are talking Manhattan, go to Lava and you'll see plenty of celebs hanging out and spending more money that I make a month that night. I just happened to be at a stop light in midtown while the guy drove up. Not like we partied or he invited me to kick it with him and Kanye.

What kind ofcar is that?

My grandson loves for me to pick him up from his school. He always asks me, "Can I drive?". We both laugh.
He's 12. But the looks we get from the other kids. Makes me feel like I'm in high school all over again.

Yeah, middle-aged crazy, I admit it.

Driving north on the Atlanta Autobahn (GA400) a couple of weeks ago and I look in my rear view mirror and I see this 90's, I think it was a Buick or Oldsmobile, driving like a bat outta hell and he manages to pull up next to me and he sticks his head out his window and just stares at my car. That was it, he slowed back down to about 55 and I carried on. Weird.

You should have told Jay-Z he can have it for a mere 100k if he likes it so much, I'm sure he has that in his wallet
