I don't get some people

Hey guys,

So I'm on my way home from work with my windows down and sunroof cracked waiting at a set of lights about 3 cars deep. This really nice orange an black Camaro pulls up beside me (clearly a stock V6). The driver glances over and this is the following conversation:

Me:Nice car!
Guy: thanks!
Me: Have you seen the new ZL-1 in town? It's sweet!
Guy: No not yet, I've got this supercharged! 750hp!!
Me: Oh sweet! Doesn't sounds like it though..
Guy: Yeah.. Exhaust is next!
Me: Nice! Sleepers are the best.
**green light**

I don't understand why people are like this, it was a nice car and I wasn't bashing it at all. Then he goes on lying, there was no supercharger whine (even on acceleration) and it was clearly a V6.

Maybe he felt intimidated when I mentioned thee ZL-1

Re: I don't get some people

Yeah I should have said mines a TT 4L V6 with AWD. I wanted to make the BOV quiet as well as the exhaust.

So funny when people think they know cars because of what they drive.

Re: I don't get some people

You have to wonder about any guy that buys a V6 Camaro. Probably not all there in the head.

Yeah I see what you mean but i'd feel robbed if I was driving a V6 Camaro or Mustang.

He could have been for all I know. I don't see a point to troll someone who was being nice in the first place.

@icsports- That's too funny. It amazes me how oblivious some people can get. There's another video with a "Type-R Mustang" I couldn't find it though.
