Default Are you more nicer to other bonneville drivers?

Ok today when I was driving during the lunch hour rush, I was in the far right lane waiting to turn. There was a bonneville (93-99) waiting for someone to let him pull out of a parking lot. Nobody would, so when I came up, me driving a bonneville too, I stopped and let him turn into the lane. It got me to thinking, I notice that in many cases I find myself more likely to slow down on the expressway to let a bonnie merge in or like today let one turn out a parking lot. Are you guys nicer to other bonnevilles? Overall, I try to have courtesy for all drivers regardless of the car.

sometimes, just depends on if the person looks like a a$$ hole, I'm partial to letting bonnies, PA'* and Arorua'* in, A lot of other people that drive the same car probably feel the same I guess,

no, because they're usually old people. I pass them on double yellow and go bye bye!

I dont know about nicer, but I do try and catch up to them if I see them ahead of me, and when I get close enough to take a look see, I punch it and take off

Yeah, I do the same thing, especially when it'* an SSEi. Once he hears the whine, he'll be sure to think twice about his car

If the person is driving like an a** we box them in and slow it to 20 below the speed limit.









I drive the same regardless what kind of cars are on the road. I stop extra early and keep a farther distance if the car looks expensive.
