That's sick. Probably have to deploy the chute on the off-ramp of an exit as well.

Yes, I have three cars.

For all who wondered, and to clear this up;

I purchased my 03 350Z when I graduated high school. It is now paid off.

I then purchased my 05 STi a year later. Building that now.

Recently, my cousin's GSR (now mine) was going to get repo'd and it was a very clean car, so I picked that up off of him.

I used to be able to jab those people (drove a Legacy built in Indiana), but now I go along the lines of what you said.

The American cars that also have parts outsourced from Japan. So you get to help both economies!

Ironically , though our wrx's are not more japanese cars are assembled in the US then "American" cars. Then again I guess they could get away with saying Mexico and Canada are North American countries.

I watched a documentary on the building process for the new Dodge Challanger. It is built in Mexico and assembled in Canada, 100%. (North) American muscle.........?

Exactly, you guys are right. If you buy American....it's parts are either made in Mexico or on another continent. They minds well say, "designed in the USA." Remember, were too good to make anything on our own now. Hopefully you picked up on the sense of humor, haha. Yeah, no matter what you buy....there is influence from other countries everywhere. American muscle is lame anyway, I really only prefer the new Mustang GTs. Everything else can go suck it.

Oh and PS...what's with mini-vans becoming more "sporty?!" You have got to be f'in kidding me!!! As if they don't already drive fast enough, gotta get little Jimmy to soccer practice now!!!!!!!

Oh my god, you must be joking. It's spoken "you might as well say".

I'm sorry if this comes off rude but every once in a while the spelling/grammar on the internet shocks me to the point where I need to point it out.

Mustang GT owner, couldn't have been older than 20, parked next to me at in n out earlier today. He was getting out of his car and I was getting into mine.

him: So, that thing fast?
Me: It does alright?
him: I raced one of them a few weeks back, nearly kept up with me.
Me: That's cool I guess.
him: yeah, I figured they'd be pretty fast cars, since they have a hood scoop just like my 'stang.
Me: You do realize your scoop doesn't actually do anything right? Its just a piece of sealed of plastic stuck to your hood like those ones the kids with hondas buy from pepboys.
him: I'd still smoke your little POS ricer car in a race!
Me: *laughing my ass off* ok dude.

Got in my car and left still laughing.

Mustangs are becoming the new Honda. I'm a huge fan of the classics still but too many kids have them today, and they think their V6 is the greatest thing EVAR!!!! It upsets me. Back on topic.

Uncle: what are those nipple things sticking out of your rear seats??
Me: (nipple though?) those are to adjust the damper in my struts. It makes it firmer or softer.
Aunt: but why are they there?
Me: those are for the suspension in the rear. The front adjusters are under the hood.
Aunt: suspension in the rear? What do you mean?
Me: Uh? you have a strut and spring for each wheel on your car...including the rear.
Aunt: what ever you say kiddo.
:facepalm:

Washing the car nowadays I get: 'hey! You're going to wash the paint right off that thing you keep washing it so much!'
Me: 'yeah you're probably right!'

Same goes with my little brother and his eclipse. We have a gravel driveway so it gets dusty/muddy sometimes and he's always spraying it down every time he comes home.

Dad says he's going to have to be the one to pay the water bill soon lol

Ha, I'm the same way. But I wax my car 2 times a week and if you've done it before, you know it takes a while to do it right and by hand. The other day while I was detailing my car she said, "Holy ****! why don't you just marry that car and forget about me!" I was like, "WHO ARE YOU!................................. To tell me that??"

Last week I pulled up to a light next to some guy and his wife (40-50y/old) in a anniversary addition 5.0 convertible. They were in the left turn only lane, I was going straight. Well as soon as I stopped I seen them look over and laugh, then he proceeds to rev his engine. I just sat their, it's stupid and even stupider cause he's making a left and I'm going straight.
But what made it funnier was when they got the green arrow only and started to pull away they just about snapped their necks when I rev'd mine.

Sorry, didn't realize I said it that way. She's actually cleaned/waxed 2 times a week. Always cleaned 2 times a week but not waxed evertime.
