I like Mr. Truck but I'm disappointed he showed so little respect towards the truck. When you're looking at something at a show, you never touch it unless instructed to do so and you certainly don't lean up against it. One of the first things I learned from my parents about muscle cars is how to look at them closely without touching them.

I didn't see a problem with what he did, the truck was on ground level, nothing to keep anyone away from it, plus they gave him full access to the truck, there's even a rep he pulled into the video.

I'm with NavyCuda. You don't lean up against someone's truck. I'd certainly say something to anyone leaning on my truck.

Models brought to auto shows are for people to touch and look inside. Unless its on a raised platform or behind a rope I think that its fair game.

So few people raised with the idea of respecting someone elses property.

I haven't done it myself but from what I seen in the video it seems okay, not that i'd suggest doing it, if anything i'd ask if certain things can be done before doing them when appropriate.

Reminds me of the Langley Good Times Show & Shine. Some people letting their children crawl all over show cars then have the gall to get pissed off with the owners when their child is told to get lost.

"You shouldn't bring your car to a car show if you don't want people in it!"

The entitled generation strikes again. It's not enough to see something nice, but have to get their grubby hands all over someone elses passion.

Watch the body language in the video, he wanted to tell Mr. Truck to stop leaning on the truck. His eyes dart to Mr. Trucks arm more than once.

Anyways Mr. Truck reminded me of the crappy parents who didn't control their children. I guess I was just raised in a different time.

I see it now, sharp eye.

Cars put on display at the shows unfortunately endure a ton of abuse. I was sitting in a Land Rover Discovery Sport at the latest LA Auto Show, and watched a woman in front of me flip the visor mirror up and down. I guess she thought she was testing the feel of the hinge or something. Anyway, guess what -- the visor mirror broke off in her hand. Some people need to be more gentle with cars, they're breakable like any other product...

Good mention.

Those are indeed key indicators, makes it even worse this video made it online.

I guess we know who might be unlikely to be invited out to Nissan press events ;)

Somebody should send this thread to Mr. Truck, I wonder what his opinion would be :devil:
