My sister: "Your car sounds like a bus"

Cop who pulled me over and popped my hood:

Cop: "What's this?" (points at TMIC)
Me: "An intercooler."
Cop: "It doesn't look like it belongs there, do you have CARB numbers for it?"
Me: "The car comes stock with that."
Cop: "Don't lie to me, I wasn't born yesterday"
Me: "...." (I really didn't know what to say without getting in trouble)
Cop: "....well, I'm going to let you go then, I don't feel like waiting for the tow truck."

Ive gotten that remark from little kids. My favorite

As im walking to my car from the mall i near my car. These two old guys get out of their pt-cruiser.

One man says to the other. "Looks at those gold rims."
Other guy says "Ya must be a spick."

As i open the door to my car two old guys just about **** themselves.

Best part about it is that they have the LDS and CTR stikers on their car. BTW those are some morman things.

the jealousy of you having a better sounding car....

I get the ocasional "Have you had your car sideways lately?"

"Subaru... Sounds Australian!"

and my favorite "Your car is gay. My Corola GT is so much better!" (some jackass last year gave me **** for my car and that was the greatest line I have heard ever!) I just laughed and walked away

When I had my black 01 RS

Idiot #1: "Hey, is that the new Celica?"

Idiot #2: "That car's sweet! I love Evo's"

Idiot #3: (keep in mind I had the "2.5 RS" badge still on the trunk lid)"Can't go wrong with a WRX! I bet you love that thing" (also keep in mind this guy was behind me in traffic until this one stop light where he pulled up next to me and stated his stupidity or lack of reading comprehension skills)

Many other idiots "Nice WRX!"

So hard not to rip into some people....doesn't anyone know the WRX is/was a different body style than the RS I had? The answer--> apparantly not.

People tell me all the time "dude get a BOV, it makes life easier for your turbo"...........

Actually had someone ask me what that hissing was coming from the passenger side.......(spool). They thought I had an exhaust leak.

My best one was at a gas station, keep in mind I have a turbo timer set for 20 seconds:

I get out of the car, walk around to start the whole credit card/pump gas deal.

Dude from a pump over- "hey, your car is still on!" in a concerned tone

I'm feeling nice, - "thanks" give a wave.

"Dude, turn off your car"

wave

"TURN OFF YOUR F'N CAR YOU ARE GOING TO BLOW US ALL UP!!!" as he, no joke, walks briskly to the gas attendant to, I suppose, tell on me.

The car turns off. I put the nozzle in (note I'm not anywhere near the ignition).

"What?? Y-your car..."

"It does that."

"Thats....cool." he says sheepishly

I always have my turbo timer on for 50 secs at the gas station and have had many simalar situations where the car shuts off as they finish their discerning sentence.

my best compliment by far is when my girlfriends little brother calls my car a racecar and acually has models that he made look exactly like my car.(jdm wrx sti look)

on an unrelated related note....reminds me of people talkin about my Escort. Eyes open, ears perk up when I tell 'em it'll run damn close to a flat 14 and its got about 225hp at the crank..then I tell em its turbo'd, and the response:
Why???
How would you feel getting beat by a $3000 Ford Escort it's humbling, lol
