I had my GT-R parked in a parking lot that is fenced in with bushes and a security guard. I check on my car whenever get a break and see I kid cross the into the lot and snap some pics. I said nothing and only observed his description . Also what about people driving behind you or next to you hanging out the window snapping some pics ? BTW late at night car behind me started pointing at my car, I thought it was a gun first, but then realized it was a cell phone. Also guy takes a picture of me pumping gas into the GT-R, this is crazy. (LOL)

I dont know if it is a Long Island thing or not,but more often than not the cell phone come out and start snapping photos. I was a gas station the other day when a Porsche Panamera drove in,he stopped for gas and glanced over at my car and kinda looked down his nose.Out of no where 5 kids with cell phones jumped out of their car and ran over and asked me if it was ok to take some photos as they had never seen a GTR up close,I told them no problem and they started rattling off stats about the car. The porsche owner was clearly miffed and drove away.Too Funny! Happens all the time.Get used to it

I usually don't react much. If I see people doing it while I'm driving then I'll typically try to maintain speed so that they can get a decent shot. Seems like the nice thing to do.

if it's pictures that they want, i'd say make it somewhat easy for them to snap them, in the interest of road safety. plus, nothing wrong with letting fans get what they want and further boost the image of GT-R

Friend: Hey man, there's a guy taking pictures of your car.
Me: It happens.
Friend: Really there's a guy checking your car out.
Me: Yeah.....it happens.

It's funny I've had the car for two years, and I still have people taking pictures of it. I just smile and let them snap away.

Happens all the time, it's rare that I take the car out and don't have someone snapping some pics.

Yeah you definately have to get used to it. Having a car like this you will draw all kinds of attention. Any day I decide to take the GTR out I get at least one person taking a pic with cell phone or getting a thumbs up. I really don't mind all the attention it was kind of expected. However, I do appreciate the fans that actually ask for permission to take a pic even though I'm kool if they didnt.

GT-R parked in my driveway on Halloween.
Lady asks " can I take a picture of me and your car ?"
Me "sure"
I then see her lean towards the car with her jacket unzippered.
Me" just do not lean on the car "
You have to watch clothing such as zippers or buttons as they will scratch the clearcoat. Most people do not mean any harm, but they are not aware how easy a car can scratch.

AJC, iGusGus,

My GF and I went to the gym.
We had just parked, and she went ahead and got out and started to walk to the gym.
I was still in the car digging for crap.

Some dude driving by with his GF thought my car was my GF's.
He turned around and came to the parking lot, pulled up to her and told her 'nice car' (and then drove off).
My GF told me that his GF was rolling her eyes, miffed.

She then told me that if we break up, she should get a car like mine for picking up guys.
