Yesterday in Ottawa, a young couple (early 20's) in a Ford Focus sedan kept speeding up & slowing down to look at the car. The woman yelled something across to me (at me?) while we were driving, but I couldn't make it out over the wind & traffic noise.

I'm guessing she thought it was funny judging by their expressions.

Twice they sped away to the next red light, only to have me roll up alongside them again as the light changed back to green.

Today someone said: "Looks like one of those French cars... is that a Peugeot?"
