I would guess because my car has a slightly noisy exhaust (2" system,
extractors and stupid little 'hot dog' muffler), a front spoiler,
wide(r) tyres and a competition rollbar - I seem to attract the 'hoon' element.

When a musclecar and turbo rice-burner pulls up beside me at traffic
lights and 'challenges' me... I often end up stalling me car because I
am laughing so much.

Now, if it was another rumbly sounding, 34 year old, 4 cylinder British
car... THEN they may get themselves a decent response :-)

(but I do get embarrassed when the granny in the 'gopher' takes me on
and WINS!)
