I get random attention at times with mine, and yesterday was fairly good for it, all on the highway.
1) Yesterday when I stopped at a rest stop on my way home and when I came out, two workers who were powerwashing the sidewalk had stopped and were both pointing at my car and having a discussion about it (all I heard was something along the lines of "What is it? Are you sure? What about those wheels...").
2) Before that, on the PA/DE border flying down I-95, I had just gotten on the on ramp and noticed a brand new Town Car behind me. Nothing unusual, except for the fact that every time I'd floor it or change lanes, so did he in odd ways, trying to catch up to me. Did once, and I got a nice smile.
3) A bit further down in DE, on I-95 still, I caught a glimpse of a dark cherry FWB ahead and, being how rarely that happens, sped up so we could see each other. It was a younger lady and, I think her daughter, and after separating, they passed me by later and the little girl waved.
Lots of other little things, too, but not too often (at least when I'm actually there) do I get direct parking lot comments. Except...
3) The BEST
was this summer when I went to the dealer to take out a new Buick Lucerne, and when I got back, it wasn't so much about how I liked the car but instead being barraged by comments about my car. This was, apparently, after my salesmen said he and everyone else who was there had gone out and gathered around my car to admire it, since most had never seen one, and YET AGAIN, I got the "What kind of wheels are those?"
4) The most general, at least around home? A carload of older people in their Deville/LeSabre/etc. who see my car in passing, and proceed to point and say things about it...mainly, once they see the door Fleetwood badge (like someone else mentioned).

I love meeting people who know about Fleetwoods... most people think they are just another DeVille or something.
So do I! And for whatever reason, it's usually the people at gas stations along side me who take notice of that fact--AND, at least for me, it's ALWAYS older women!
Color-wise, mine is very middle of the road, but all black and lowered a bit with exhaust and those gorgeous wheels, I can only imagine the looks you get Elias
