    Well, I used to get compliments on my Suburban all the time.. Like TimTom, I've had guys pay for my in drive thru-s, and I would have guys come up to me all the time when they'd see my truck about how clean it was,etc... One great thing that was always said to me was "You're a girl... And THATS your truck??"

    Also, i found this be a compliment as well... The first owner of my truck was a man who owned a car dealership and a motorcycle dealership. After it was a couple years old, he sold it to the man I bought it from. Well, I purchased it, i cleaned it up and did everything to it. When the original owner finally saw it after a few years, and had seen the changes I'd done to it, he would come to my work once a week to ask me if he could buy it back, and could let me pick anything off his lot.. At that time, I wanted t a diesel, but he had no Duramax's. But did have 2 Powerstroke's. I thought it was pretty cool considering he could drive whatever he wanted, but wanted my truck... Unfortunately, he has since passed away.. RIP Mr. Durand.

    I get a lot of looks from people driving other OBS trucks. I was at the end of my driveway waiting for the bus one morning with my daughter. A newer truck pulled out of the street next to my driveway. The driver craned his neck so hard looking at my truck that he drove off into the grass.

    I have had a few people shout out their truck windows at me telling me they liked my truck.

    It's interesting to me... I have had other trucks that I thought were much more attention getting, but people seem to really take notice of this one. I have sort of regarded this one as a beater truck...

    You know, I never really get compliments for my truck. Sure, people at work or some friends that see something new I have done will say or ask about it, and maybe say it's nice or whatever but honestly, good or bad, I'm not doing anything to my truck for the benefit of others or to get attention. I like to take pictures and share them and appreciate the compliments I get here, but I just enjoy looking at what my hard work has provided me. To me, my truck is an indication of goals being accomplished for a much brighter goal for my future. It's a reminder every day of my ultimate vision of a vehicle that will take me places I've always wanted to see and meet new and interesting people.

    I hope that when the end result is a little closer to being fulfilled (because honestly, who ever gets done modding a vehicle?) that I'll still be able to use it for the purpose it will serve. And so, after making myself sound like a truck obsessed nut (because I am), if I have gotten a memorable comment or compliment on my truck, it went through one ear and out the other.

    A few weeks ago a woman who I would guess was in her late 60's or early 70's was making her way back to her vehicle. As I was getting into my truck she stopped and took a moment to tell me she thought that I had a beautiful truck. This was in town (city) where I live, not out in the country where I often find myself on the weekends ... and her vehicle was an Acura RL.

    That might have made sense to me out in the country, as I see country gals in trucks quite a bit. However, the combination of older, female, and city gal (based on what she drove and location) was so unusual that it made me feel a special sort of pride ... as it's usually older teenagers and younger men who stop and say something, be it for the transformer logos or the truck's aesthetics. Crossing gender, generational, and urban/rural boundaries just caught me completely off guard.
