Girl in the backseat, asking about my boost gauge: "what is that thermometer thingy by your steering wheel?"
Me: "it's a boost gauge."
"What's that?"
"It measures the turbo pressure"
"Do all Subarus have turbos?"

Fairly legit question coming from a girl(non car enthusiast)... its like asking if all subies have awd. Just needs a simple explanation

He conceded that I might be able to beat him in a straight line, but since his car was tested at Green Hell and has the same suspension as a Ferrari, he could take me on a curvy road. He sent me the ATS Super Bowl commercial on Youtube that closes with, "tell them to go to Green Hell." Wanted to say, "Yeah, I'll go there and beat your ATS time." Thoughts?
Haha. Green Hell eh, Caddy probably would make it out if The Nuremberg!

Angry recent article about the myths of AWD - Popular Mechanics

This was the funniest thing I had ever read about Subarus. Search for this article from popular mechanics.
The myth of the all-powerful all-wheel drive

Guy in my class was talking about buying a truck, I think he wants one of those Ford Raptors or something.....he looks right over at me and says:

"It will rape any Subaru ever!"

I was just and asked what exactly he meant.

"Well not in a straight line, but everywhere else trucks are better. You're always saying how Subaru's are so good off road (which I don't) but they don't stand a chance to a good truck"

Such a dumb, generalized comment, I just laughed at him.

Elderly man walks up to me while checking my oil at a gas station.
Old guy: "New cars like these don't burn oil! You bought yourself a lemon."
Me: Well you see....ah nevermind, have a good day sir.

Yeah, this article is retarded. Holy ****, a FWD car with snow tires is better in the snow than an AWD car with all-seasons? Wow!! Put the snow tires on the AWD car and then tell me which is better. Ignoramuses.

This kid comes into my shop the other night, to whom I've never spoken just seen that he has a foxbody, the following convo ensued.
Strange kid (SK): Wanna race?
Me: haha what
SK: wanna race?
Me: you've got a 5.0 fox right?
SK: yea (huge stupid grin)
Me: no don't want to waste my time.
SK: (still with the grin) why not?
Me: not to be a jerk but I've got more into my engine than you've got in your whole car.
SK: you sure?
Me: did you spend 10k for your car?
SK: no, but are you sure you'll win?
Me: (I sighed kinda annoyed) how about from a roll?
SK: why not from the dig?
Me: because I will scatter my Lego tranny all over the road. So how about a roll?
SK: how fast?
Me: 55?
SK: I won't have any power at 55 in third I run out that high in the power band.
Me: (I shrug)
Sk: I'll catch you one day (stupid grin returns)
Me: maybe if I'm sleeping
SK: still grinning while walking away.

Typical of the mustangs and Camaros in my area, disrespect the sedans then we blow their doors off laughing all the way lol

What makes you so sure you would beat him? Some of those 5.0's are pretty quick. Also, your "did you spend 10k for your car" comment makes you seem pretty arrogant.....

Then we finished talking about cars and he left. Some guy said "well what do you expect from an Australian car?" I said it's a Japanese car. He said well they use the Australian flag. I just simply said it's actually a constellation that the Japanese recognize.

The flag I don't get. The out back park I can see.
