Getting Gas Is The Hardest Part Of Owning An Exotic Car

Program teaches women about car maintenance – South Bend Tribune: Communitybriefs

But there is one especially unusual thing about getting gas in an exotic car: other people. Before I get started here, I want to say that I love when car enthusiasts approach me at the gas pump. When I had my E63 AMG wagon, this is all that ever happened: I’d be sitting there, filling the car with gas, and a guy would walk up and start talking about his V70R, and we’d share this blissful moment where we both realized that we were spending approximately one-quarter of our annual income on maintenance. Eventually, we’d part ways with a manly fist bump. Normal people would never approach me when I had my AMG wagon, because they thought I had just borrowed my mom’s car, and also they wondered why there was some guy filling up his car without any pants on. But that’s not what happens with the Ferrari. What happens with the Ferrari is, everyone walks up to you at the gas pump, and they immediately start asking questions. What does it cost? What kind of mileage does it get? How fast is it? What year is it? Then they start click poking around the thing, as if they’re trying to verify these facts for themselves. After a while, you start to feel like you’re not driving a Ferrari, but rather hosting a yard sale where you’re trying to unload a used lawnmower. As I’ve thought about this issue, I’ve specifically identified three main types of Ferrari approachers, at least one of whom I will almost surely encounter at every single gas stop. They are: 1. Guy with other cool car, but he doesn’t have it with him. For some reason, there’s one of these people at every single gas station I visit. Basically, what happens is, they’re filling up some normal car, like a Mazda3, or a Honda Accord, or a plumbing van, and they see you roll in.
