Some of you know I mix sound for concerts and church services and events on the side.  

This past weekend I ran a mix for this band where the members are mostly young adults in their 20's.   I had driven my Fiero to the venue and when chit chatting, some of them got to talking about the white car in the parking lot and when they realized it was mine, they asked what it was.   They didn't believe me when I told them it was a Pontiac.  Ouch

Confused 
I've had the same thing happen to me (years ago when the car was together), that's when they get interested and really start asking questions.

Then of course....  there's the 'guy' who took his in to a PONTIAC DEALER... whereby the service advisor glanced out, looked, and said "oh, we don't service foreign cars here".  Ouch
