Don't know too many (any!) adult people that would appreciate being told to stop complaining, politely or otherwise. They thought their car should be beating all the other cars.......NOT.....bad paint, dirty engine compartment. They thought that shouldn't matter because it was an original car. They really like our cars and have asked my husband's advice. My husband told them a few things they could do to improve their car for shows. They said every cleaning/finishing product that my husband suggested didn't work.
I know it's not just my husband and myself. When you go to meetings their the ones sitting by themselves and this is a very large club, couple hundred people. I don't understand why they keeping coming to the meetings, events and shows when nothing is to their satisfaction. Probably lonesome. We just ran into them at a show........an hour later they were still standing there complaining about the venue, the people that parked them, the car owners on either side of them, why there was no breakfast coffee......
