Old lady driving a Velocity Red MZ3

I was on my way to work this morning (which is a 30 mile commute) and I came up on a Velocity Red MZ3. I got kind of excited because I haven't seen a velocity red on my way to work, only a silver hatch that travels in the opposite direction.

Well I get up to the car and give a couple of beeps and I am about to wave and I see a 70 or 80 year-old women driving it. I about laughed my arse off. She didn't even look over at me. The MZ3 definitely speaks to all ages.

BTW, if the owner of this 3 is on this forum I would like to say hi.

Something similar happened to me like that...I was driving on I-40 heading to Chapel Hill and I spotted a Winning Blue 2.3...I drove a little faster to catch up and managed to catch up...I gave the drive a few beeps as I passed, I got his attention...turned out be an older gentleman and I think I freaked him out a little bit...oops..

If I did that here in Boston, the 70 or 80 year old woman would flip me off...

Mike72771, that is funny.

I was also surprised becauase it was a MZ3 S with the sport package. I would expect an older person to have the 2.0 liter. Goes to show you should never stereotype.

I'm seeing a ton of girls driving it, except this one dude that I notice every day I drive past him 'cause I stare at his beautiful car and I think he knows it too, 'cause I don't have my 3 yet

I dig chicks with 3s and 6s. When I drive by I throw up a retarded peace sign with the thumb all crooked and do the wuddup nod. Chicks dig it.
