Strange things said about your car

176 posts in this topic

This struck me as random and funny. Today, a really old guy (80/90ish) in my neighborhood told me my car looked "smooth as a toilet seat." I had no response to that. Awhile ago, my girlfriend drove my car and said because the overhangs are pretty large compared to her car, that my car "is a big titty and big booty car." Yeah. Anything to add?

"Nice Jetta" to a Passat.

[post="5652"]<{POST_SNAPBACK}>[/post]


Depending on the year, I can see where where some people might confuse a Passat with a Jetta -- at least looking at them from the rear (assuming they haven't taken the time to read the name on the trunk).

MKIII Jetta:

I remember a while ago when I was checking the washer fluid under the hood on my Cavalier at a gas station in Waterloo, a guy come up to me: "I like how the alternator is in the front of the engine. Is that an Accord?" I closed the hood and showed him the Chevy badge on the front.

Oh man. I was in AUTO TECH last year working underneath my hood. This kid comes up to me and says "Damn, that's a nice 8. You need to put a Z06 cam and exhaust on there. That'd be sweet." I looked up, shook my head, and counted out 6 cylinders to him. What an idiot.

While stopped at a redlight some moron motioned to me to roll down my windows. Him: "Is that a BMW?" Me: "No it's not." Him: "Oh, I thought it was because it had an "x" in its name." An xB is very different from a X3 and X5.

Yay... I've got it good. :D Brookville may be the home to thousands of rednecks, but most of them are smart enough to not make stupid or wierd comments about my "riced out and imported" Pontiac Grand Am GT... :rolleyes: :lol: Appearantly not.

I don't know if this counts, but I have a wealthy friend that only until a few years ago, never owned a car that had less than 8 cylinders (it so happens, he went down to a twin turbo V6 Audi S4 when he "downgraded")... He said to me while sitting in my 1987 Plymouth Sundance, "Hey, Paolo, this is great... let me get my grandfather's lawn mower and I'll race ya!" Or how about the time he insisted I put down all the windows (I didn't have power windows), when I was driving 70 to the beach. He reclined his chair back, and rolled both rear windows down at the same time, expressing, "Hey, I like this, it's a good workout." At least he makes it up to me by letting me drive his cars LOL I got another one for you... I won a bet when I tried to convince a guy at school I had a V8 in my Sundance... came out to the car, pulled the bottle out of the back seat! LOL

A coworker kept calling my Achieva a buick for the longest time

Not my car but I was watching a movie with my family and there was a scene where a Tahoe pulls up (the bowtie is pretty obvious) and my dad makes a comment saying "that's a nice truck what is it a ford?" I say chevy.. he say "Chevy Bronco?"... I just shake my head..and say tahoe.

I have aftermarket aluminum rims on it and a some people make comments like "nice mags you got on there!" Edited by Decka

Three days after I did some bodywork on my Camaro with bondo and primer all over the rear of the car like leopard spots, this Asian guy pulls up next to me at a red light in a gorgeous red late model BMW M3 and gives my Camaro a genuine thumbs up.... this is what the car looked like. By far the worst it ever looked EVER. Hideuous. And yet here's a "yuppie" checking it out. A great exhaust note and vintage iron will do that I guess.

I rolled down my window and told him his M3 was pretty sweet too, he says he loves Bimers but want a classic car real bad. A Camaro or a Chevelle perhaps. We talked untill the green light came up and he told me to rev it up so he could hear the intoxicating exhaust note.

Yes, I made all those black rings. The pavement is my canvas and the BF Goodrich tires are my paint. I'm all about getting a grant to "paint" all the time. ;)
