Him: Is it the sports version?
Me: Ummm, yeah...
Him: It doesn't look very sporty
Me: followed by- Is 120 in 4th gear sporty enough?
Him: Really? does it have a V6?
Me: No, its a turbocharged 4 cylinder.
Him: ohhh...
Me: I pop the hood to show him around with a quick explanation
Him: He points at the intercooler and starts to ask the question, buts stops mid sentence knowing that he is about to put his foot in his mouth and then gives me a puzzled look
Me: That is the intercooler
Him: Really? So that hood scoop is actually functional? Not like on those mustangs.
Me: (faith partially restored in humanity) Yep.

We talked a bit more, but he had to get back to work. It was nice to see that someone who didn't own one wasn't all "derp derpity derp derp derp"

(not saying that people who don't drive Subarus are stupid, just dumb about Subarus.)
At least he seemed humble with is ignorance. That is a rarity these days.
