The correct response was to say, "**** you!" and speed off. Although that might've set you back a few weeks in therapy.

Not funny, but certainly a "Phrase". Driving home the other night with my window down a bunch of guys in an oldschool Mercedes pass me slowly on the drivers side. Guy in the back hangs his head out and yells, "Get a real car, ***!" (derogatory term for a gay person). I'm thinking, "what the hell man?".

I noticed he kept his window down after they passed me, so I let off the throttle, backed off just enough... downshifted into 3rd, and blew past his open window at 24psi to give him an upclose listen to an open dump EWG.

I know them cars inside and out pretty well but astill have a ton of learning to do

In relation this topic I've been cursed with many encounters of with the Mongoloid car community(honda owner).

Edit: For the record I come off as a dick but I always nice and poilte to people who try to talk cars to me even when they have no idea what they're talking about as long as they don't try to be mister "know it all" because every one has to start off with asking stupid questions. If they act like a honda owner all hell is unleashed

In my robotics class in high school I was put in a group with a kid who owned a v6 accord and though it was the coolest car in the school. I'd also like to point out he watched one too many Ken Block Video's (his fans are ****ing morons)

Me: I wouldn't minded getting a fox body mustang at some point
Him: Oh, you're one of those people (snoty tone)
Me: WTF DO YOU MEAN THOSE PEOPLE?
Him: a mustang owner/wanter rolls his eyes
Me:You know why I'd like to get a mustang? so I can learn how to drift in a car I wouldn't car about getting beat up. I wouldn't give a **** I'll drive it into a wall for the ****s and giggles!
Him: You need and AWD car to drift dumb ass
Me: You don't drift an AWD car, the pulling force of the front tires actually prevents it from drifting, instead it considered powering sliding. That's why there are no AWD in Formula D
Me: But you say I need AWD so you're going to sit there and tell me that an AE86, an fs, fc, fd Rx7 are AWD? I need and AWD so that must mean Mustangs, Camero's and Charges are too right?
Him:uhh uhmmm
Me: that's what I thought, don't come up in here and try to talk about **** you don't under stand mother ****er!BOOO YAH
Random kid 3 feet away: Seriously man...don't try to argue car to Nathan. He knows his ****

The same kid in the above post also decide to talk about a GN one day
Him: I'd like to get a GNX some day
Me: Don't get me wrong I love the GNX but they're hard to find and over expensive
Him: Pfft I have money
Me: alright then 1) good like finding a GN easy in Canada and 2) when you do manage to find one even if you go to the states good luck getting it for less than 30Grand
Me: i don't see why you wouldn't get a regal and make a clone GN
Him: because that's ****ing stupid, GN's are so fast
Me: They're quick but handle like ****. For the 30 grand or more you'll spend on a GN I could drop a done over 455 in my Cutlass and smoke any Grand
National you buy
Him: Then I'd just put a 455 in the Grand National
Me :face palm: The 3.6L v6 is the only reason the Grand Nation is famous. Putting anything else in it is a slight against the car would you idiot.

Sadly this was the 3rd stupid conversation I got into with him so I refused to talk cars to him ever again.

Don't you mean 3.8?(guessing you just hit 6 instead of an 8. )Never recall a Gm having 3.6 until recently.

When I told him how much hp it previously had, and what it has now, he goes "gtfo of here!" ...which was right about the time the road opened up and I was able to punch it in 2nd and row through the gears.

When he finally stops laughing / cursing he goes, "You know, I used to be just like you. I don't know what happened... This thing is ridiculous though."
That sounds like an awesome experience. My boss just wants to know why I "waste" my money on my car. He drives a beat up Buick SUV and makes 4 times as much as me. We both drive over an hour each way to work. I tell him that's why I'm always in a better mood. I enjoy the drive to work a lot more.

I'm the owner of the famous $100 Subaru, my coworkers made fun of it the day I got it. I nicknamed it the "super subaru", they called it the spicaroo, seeing how I'm half mexican. My coworker owns a 93 honda civic and he was bragging about how he could smoke my subaru. One day we raced and I easily left him in the dust, he didn't even have a chance. We put my legacy to the test and I went mudding with a bunch of big pickups, my subaru could go all the places that those trucks couldn't.

K: That an STI?
M- na just a wrx
K: ah nice, i had a '95 wrx sti turbo
M- oh yea??...., nice man
K- so yours isnt turbo then
M- yea it is, wrx and sti's both have one. STI's have a 6speed tho, and about 50 more HP.

K- thats my car over there, i also got a RHD Supra from Japan.
M- oh yea, any pics?
K- na, its down south at my relatives.

Rofl..cant blame you for refusing to talk again about cars. I feel like i got a headache just reading this lol.
I used to love GN's, still do. I guess 10 years ago, i'd always look around to see what was around and whatnot. Surprisingly, there was always a few GNX's around, but even back then, they were close to 30g's. I can imagine, they've only gone up in value now.
Only reason i'd get a GNX now at this point would be more for a collectors item sort of thing. Love em.

Went to NAPA for an oil filter.

Napa Guy: Have you seen a show called R U Faster than a Redneck?
Me: No
Napa Guy: They have a bunch of American Muscle and they race imports.
Me: Sounds Cool
Napa Guy: They always call the Subaru drivers Subaloosers
Me: Okay?

Didn't know if he was intentionally insulting me but didn't care to ask. I later watched a couple of episodes of said show and it was retarded. So set up

Also not sure if SPEED channel is trying to alienate import owners

Considering they don't carry F1, World Superbike, or AMA Superbike races anymore, SPEED is more the NASCRAP channel than it ever was before.

If not for MotoGP I doubt I'd ever watch it. They'd rather show stupid "reality" shows than REAL racing.

I watch that show sometimes. On one episode an 06 sti destroyed one of their domestics. I also watched a gtr absolutely rape another one as well. All their cars are making 500-700hp and some 300ish hp imports still beat them. It's pretty entertaining although the host is extremely annoying.

I'm sure this will be the only season as the imports win more than half the time it seems like. That GTR episode was freaking hilarious. The other announcer (as soon as the flag drops), "Good Lord!", as the GTR walks away from the redneck car. The one where the Audi station wagon kills all the redneck is also hilarious. Would be nice to see some [more] modified subarus on there...

It's very setup though. One import is always setup to lose in the second round and sometimes they win the 3rd round sometimes not. The host is a moron too.

Have to say though that the GTR episode made me laugh. It was definitely pushing more than 500hp based on how it walked away from that 700hp mustang.
