On a recent trip to San Diego I mixed a little business with pleasure. We have family, my brother and his family and our niece and her growing family in San Diego. So after I visited with our families, my wife and we searched for classic car dealers in the San Diego area. We found several places to visit. Everyone we spoke with was very courteous and friendly.
I commented to my wife for the most part everyone was friendly is normal. It amazes me sometimes the car culture is so unique, in that you can walk up to anyone at a car show or cruise night or even at a gas station or shopping mall parking lot and start up a conversation about cars. Sometimes it is a long conversation. The person you are talking to could be a lawyer, a doctor, a house painter, unemployed, or whatever but the conversation is all car talk! Not political or religious or who has the best house or the best lawn or the biggest house. It’s about cars, motors, transmissions, paint, interior, cam, lifters, fiberglass, rear-end or numerous other aspects pertaining to cars including all the work they have put into their current vehicle.
I walked into a small shop in San Diego and started a conversation with the owner. I told him I didn’t want to take up too much of his time. Well, two and a half hours later, we were still talking and I had to cut our conversation short. This is a common recurrence every place I go.
I meet a lot of people and some of them are older and some younger than me; but the car conversation is always pleasant and enjoyable, age does not matter. I’ve been around cars since 1958, I still enjoy car talk! I guess once you have a passion, it never leaves you! #OldIronAZ
