OTOH, a couple of yrs ago I had the TR6 on a hiway with a lot of traffic 
lites and was sort of casually dicing back and forth with a guy in a new 
Ferrari with our tops down.  We ended up at a lite together and he was quite 
friendly, compimenting me on the TR and answering a couple of Q's about his 
V8 . Not everybody is a jerk.
