Inb4 someone visits their :waxer: relatives in your neighborhood and see you outside washing your :poorvette: , new :jeep:, and :tits: new :truk: or Alfa

Oh and the $500 bottle your neighbor brought over the night before and left on your porch
When I first started here, someone asked me where I lived and I told him. He went all :fancy: so now I tell people I live one city over that's more "basic".

I'm screwed if someone I work with happens to be in my hood. :lolol:
Same hood shouldn't be a problem right? Is assume you'd just nod in agreement that you'll both keep the secret safe.

Hopefully I won't have to find out.

What's funny is that I'm not particularly :waxer: just really good at chasing down deals.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

thats :fullretard:

why not just tell them you got a good deal on it, and tell them c5 =15k thing these days?
Because it gets old when EVERYONE goes :fancy: :triggered: Easier to just not bring it up.

There's a number of people I work with that are super into vehicles. I bet they'd think it's cool and get it...it'll probably come up in discussion at some point.
People just assume Corvettes are all stupid money to buy. You could roll around in a crossfire C4 and I bet dumbasses would still think you're a baller.

I mean, I like Porsches... but I’m from a blue collar family and my fiancée is too. The BMW has been bad enough. Also I imagine everyone you work with has more wealth than most where I work. It’s stupid to care but still annoying to have resentment based on what you drive.
Man I got this with just a fucking C5. A couple guys in the inspection department gave me problems in any way they could because "I was driving my dad's car" to work.

:disgust:

I can't imagine if I showed up in a 996 or gayman
Here the C5's and C6's are nothing special anymore and nobody pays them any attention. Most people see them as nothing more than an Acura Integra from the 90's. Once they started dipping into the $15k range years ago they started showing up in quantities at the high school parking lots.

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/d/ ... 98280.html

High miles, but :ellis: so :aintcare:

I actually got more negative comments on my C7's from people I work with, usually asking me "why didn't you buy a nice car, like an Audi or something?".
I'm on my last bag of peas.

People have 3M homes and 3k cars out here, and it’s very common. Especially in NorCal, SoCal is completely different on every level

Yes, for the most part if you aren't a complete enthusiast or Tesla fanboi nobody cares what car you drive because we see Aventadors, 458s, 488s, GT2RS' and McLarens being tail gated by Nissan Sentras with 5 colors of body panels every day. $500 car w/o insurance driven by Paco 2 feet off a $400k car at 70 mph? Yeah, that's not a problem.

Not everywhere is the Bay Area :lolol:

I find most people just are like “that’s cool” with the C5. Many are shocked it’s almost 20 years old.
That's how most people were, and asking genuine questions about it, but some people were actually butt hurt, and it just so happened to be people that can actually make things difficult for me here.

Now I really want a Porsche for a few days
Rent one off turo!

This is an outstanding point. Having a second vehicle in general is quite a luxury to most.
