Default Do you tell them? or not?

If somebody asks you about your car do you tell them all the stuff you have done to it? Like if some old guy came up to me and asked i would prolly tell him some stuff about it but if a guy my age (21) came up to me and asked then i am a little more reluctant to tell him everything.

I'm a little confused as to the purpose of this question.

Are you worried about theft or something from the younger guy? There's no law that that says you have to tell a stranger anything about your car. Put on your big girl panties and realize that the whole world isn't out to get you and/or your car.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

If I feel like getting into details then sure, but if I'm just feeling fat and lazy or I have somewhere I want/need to be at then I'd leave it at 'oh just some bolt ons'.

no, I wouldn't, but then again I don't like to talk to anyone about anything. I'm not your buddy just because I bought the same kind of car you did.

Tell them it's a HEMI, if they don't react accordingly just leave it at that ;D

But no I usually don't get into specifics unless I'm asked.

It depends on the person. If they are seriously interested I'll give them a soup to nuts tour.

I have a 04. Since it is not a Cobra or a Mach 1, nobody cares.

yes tell them. If you have a long mod list just mention the biggest things. No reason to hide anything.... Is there?

Usually what I say is air intake, intake manifold, exhaust. (I don't mention the off-road or specifics of exhaust). I also don't bother telling them about the gears.

When do you break it to them that it's an automatic?
