Default Attention

The rain finally stopped here and the sun came out so, I decided to take the 427 out for a ride.

I pull into this gas station to fill up and this minivan full of vacationers from South America keep staring at the car. As I finished pumping my gas, the dad in the group comes up to me and tried in his best broken English to ask for a picture with the car. I gave him one better and let his wife take a picture of him sitting in the car.

Then as I go to leave, his son comes over and asks for a picture too, so I let him sit in the car too. It was a toss-up who had the biggest grin this morning, the dad, the son or me.
