I stopped at an intersection today and a guy pulled up beside me. Usual thing. Have a bit of a chat. What year is it? I had one of those years ago. This one floored me.

"Is that a Sprite?"
"It is a Triumph."
"Yeah. A Triumph Sprite."

He pulled away before I could think of something to say. Maybe something like "I like your Ford Commodore."

Any suggestions if this should happen to me in the future?

I have several old cars so I get a lot of that. People believe they are being friendly and helpful. Such meetings are usually brief , there's nothing to gain so I just go along with it. Some are longer. My father used to have fond memories of his grandfathers 1928 Buick and would show photos. It was actually a 1928 Chrysler but why bother being disagreeable? Then there was a friend in the late 60's who had a very nice Bugeye Sprite, A fellow pulled up in a Monaro, "Nice MG but they don't go". He then took off and ran into the back of a stopped bus. There is a God.
