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.

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.
