Me too, my '05 LGT doesn't get very many looks from the ladies. I've gotten more than one, "Is that a Camry?" over the years.

Guy in a green harley yesterday eyeballed the hell out of my car, gave me a nod. I nodded back. Light turned green, loud engines roared. I love seeing people of the harley caliber eye googling my car.

I get that, but I've RA flaps, redone lights, a full done out roof rack, and debadged. Its not like I look like a grandmas car.

And he lied under oath several times. Not just breaking major league baseball rules which shows lack of discipline, he was also a lier. Was he a great ball player sure, but the reason he isnt a hall of famer is clear.

I never got waves with a light bar 6" fogs lowered on 17x9's WRX grill, HELLA horns, etc... It's the scoop that makes the difference

Talking to one of the waiters at the restaurant where I work..

Me: my car has been in the shop a while now, the transmission went

Him: oh that sucks that's why I only buy manual cars.

Me: *slightly confused* My car is manual too.

Him: I thought manual cars don't have transmissions.

Me: ..........uhhhhhh all cars have transmissions

Him: Wait what's that thing that automatic cars have that manuals don't?

Me: a torque converter? Lol wut

Him: oh nevermind I must be confused.


What da herrrr?! o_O

Well to be fair automatics have automatic transmissions, there's a pretty big difference.

This is not a comment itself, but relates to the topic. I get wayyyy more compliments/comments on my 1985 Toyota Cressida Wagon then I ever get regarding my Subaru. The Cressida is bone stock.

So I went to pick up a friend who was with a guy, figured I may as well drop that guy off where he had to go (on the way, he asked) so I did. First thing he says when he gets in the car:

"D*MN NICE STI! This thing's probably fast as F***!"

Me- Yeah it's got a little power

"Have you seen (some guy)'s evo 8? It's 375 hp and insane. You would SMOKE it dude."

Me- 375hp is a lot, a stock STi wouldn't have a chance. EVO 8's are monstrous

Keep in mind this is all before we even pulled out of the parking lot

"Well at least you know how to drive it. (Random guy) was doing 150 in the tunnel and was like inches from the wall"

Me - *facepalm*


then a little while later:

"DUDE PLEASE tell me you have a blowoff valve on here"

Me- Nope.

"Wait it didn't come with one stock? (Random Guy) has one, he says there's a noticeable HP difference. Like 10 or so"


Me - Nope, and BOV's don't yield any power at all, all they'll do is make you run rich..

"Oh well man I still think you could smoke it. You guys should race in the tunnel sometime"
