4. Never Educate a Show Car Owner about His / Her Car
If you know a significant amount about cars, or one car in particular at the car show, you should not take it as an opportunity to educate or teach the car owner about his or her own car. The last person in the world that someone wants to hang out with is someone who “knows everything.” It doesn’t matter if you have the best idea of how the owner can fix a glaring issue with their car, or where they can buy a hard-to-find part, you should not get into discussions at this level unless the car owner initiates the conversation. Some car owners just do not want to talk shop at the car show, so keep your bright ideas or thoughts close until invited to enter a discussion along these lines at the show.
