Any Celebrities Out There?

  • The only thing that I have noticed over the years is that my Slingshot is recognized by more people than I am. lol It does seem to have a life of its own. :zany_face:

    100% agree! Was up in downtown Denver with a group. Literally parked at end of block where they had it blocked off for restaurants to do outdoor seating etc... 100's of folks walking by and taking pics asking questions etc... Wife goes to find another drink and comes back to chicks posing in front of the sling and some how that was my fault lol

  • just curious if anyone knows if Shaquille O'Neal or any other famous people that own a Slingshot are members of this forum?

    The voices in my head think I'm a pretty big deal.

    It's true in some corners of the business world as well.


    I use to be with a cutting edge High-Performance Computing company that sold networks for huge computer clusters. Some companies, but particularly universities always were willing to trade on their name in return for a bigger discount or if they could even get gear for free.

    That's the nice thing about teaching, ya get to dislike 'em *before* they're famous. They're no different just because they're pre-famous though. 😁

    The smarter you get, the funnier I am.

  • As a residential painting contractor I drive the Slingshot to most of my estimates, and it's amazing how many know my Slingshot and the monkey who rides on a daily bases.

    That Monkey has seen some miles now!!! And I am not talking about EjFord
