Out of line. You should have found his Escalade and rocked out like Elvis on the hood.

People should always ask if they can take a picture with your car. That's when you say, "Sure, just please don't touch the car." If you already have a placard plainly posted that says, "Look but don't touch!" you shouldn't have to say anything. Some people just don't understand the time and work that goes into prepping a car for a show, and treat them like they're in the WalMart parking lot.

In 1977 about a year after I painted my ’69 Vette it was parked at work and I saw a woman sitting on it. I went out nicely asked to please not sit on my car. “I ain’t hurtin’ it”. I had to debate with her about whether or not she could sit on MY car. I held my temper because it would be too easy for her to do a lot of damage sliding off.

About five years ago a local Dodge dealer invited Viper owners for a Saturday car show/brunch. A friend bought his new Viper. My wife noticed a woman leaning on it. My wife explained to the woman that this car was privately owned and asked her not to lean on it. “I ain’t hurtin’ it”.

Its your car.... its your feelings therefore ...your decision.

For me, I dont mind people touching my car at all. I do mind however them LEANING on my car. Heck I'll even invite people to sit in them. I lean on mine all the time but I am very careful to check what I'm wearing ... jeans etc.

Now if you're a guy that yells at people touching your car....yet if a hot girl touches or leans on it and you act like its okay.... well you're open season. I dont like anybody leaning on mine no matter if your HOT or NOT.

Nope, you're on the money. A lot of people have no respect for others anymore and they continue to pass that to their kids. Perhaps the kids just learned something their parents can't grasp.

They didn't go to work and earn the money you invested, they didn't pour hours of love an labor into it, they have no investment in it at all, they can't be allowed to take that from you because they are ignorant.

You got it. No respect for your property and your hard work that went into the car.
There are larger societal issues in play here too. But thats for another post on another website.

Hellz no you weren't wrong, nothing bothers me more than people invading my space or leaning on one of my vehicles Tongue
I probably have more quirks but those two came to mind first, LOL

I actually stopped going to a very large weekly car show (2,000+ vehicles) I've been going to for many years because people will park an inch from your car, bump it, hit it, lean on it, they just don't care. Now I go to a very small weekly get together with a bunch of old timers (like me) and we all sit around and BS and everyone has plenty of space. Some weeks there's only 20 or so, other weeks 50 - 75, but they're all really nice high quality vehicles and great people WHO WILL NOT LEAN ON MY CAR
