"Is that a Volvo."
"Move that piece of shit!" -When the car stalled and the DCNFs flooded and wouldn't restart. I like how morons will yell at you, but nobody bothers to help push the car out of traffic. The only help I ever got was a Direct TV guy.
"There's no engine up front?" -while I'm putting stuff in the trunk.
"Is it fast?"
"Why's it so loud?"
"Why won't it go into reverse?" -stupid questions from the wife, her first car was a 74 Beetle.
"Wanna race up the hill?" -hippie where I used to work, he had a 66 Beetle with a 1600 and 30 pict carb.
"Wanna trade...?" I've been offered a "restored" Beetle with no engine (Thanks, but how am I s'possed to get to work and stuff? Rolling Eyes ) and a Mitsubishi Galant.

On my older brothers bug we alwasy got "Move Your a**" , "Herbie called he wants his shi* back" , or "Fuc*** Hippy" . But we also got good compliments. Girls who know about cars always came up to us flirting with us so it is kinda a chick magnet in california.

"Is that one of the old ones?"
(asked by a woman walking by with her husband, who sighed and rolled his eyes after she asked)

I hope he skooled her some once they got in their car.

and then my favorite:

"You know the engine is in the back in those..."

All I could do was bite my tongue and nod.

never ceases to amaze me. everytime we go somewhere i get someone asking if i want to sell it. and its not even done, still needs paint. but buggys are something of rarity out here.
and this is one that was told to me bu a guy with a dune buggy:

I just got back from the local ice cream shop, I took my Niece there for a cone and a ride in the buggy. I parked next to a Jeep Rubicon. We got our ice cream went back to the buggy when the "kid" with the Rubicon decided to show off in front of his friends. He said in a rather loud tone "Oh look, a little dune buggy! I bet it has never even seen a dune" (I live near Chicago).
I looked at his Jeep Rubicon and said "I can prove that my buggy has seen the dunes, can you prove your Jeep has seen the Rubicon" I promptly whipped out the little photo album from under my seat to show the dune pictures. Needless to say his friends were laughing at him for getting shot down.

"See, I know enough to pick it up by the front and not the back," - a big kid in a parking lot after showing off by lifting the front of my bug a foot off the ground.

i have a fat chick bus and this is what i get

how do you get to the motor?
how much for it?
what is that little door for in the back?


and long story short:
i went to autozone once and said i have a 1977 vw bus. i need a water pump. 30 minutes later when the manager is calling other places to see if they have one i said i'm just kidding it doesn't have one. he assured me that all cars have water pumps.

i don't do business there anymore. Very Happy

In my Bugatti kit car, i get a lot of complements

"That is cute." heard from everyone from my hot lady friends up to really old guys.

"How did you find it."

(at a gas station, the filler is where the 'radiator' fill is at)

"You should prbably stop filling the radiator with gas, you know you are soppose to use water" With my quick responce"Shit! What do I do"

"How much you pay" I hate this one, I lie, and add a few thousand on to the price, then tell themI would sell it to them for cheaper, becaues I need money

And, my all time favorite (THere is a fake gas filler on the the back top of the boattail) at a car show, some guy was trying to impress his wife and kids, and was like "Oh man, look at this guys, you would have to be nuts to sit like that right in front of the gas tank like that." and go, there is no tank back there, and pull out the seat exposing the motor, he goes " just as insane"

Also, guys at shows think it is really from 1927, and go, man, that thing got one of those Buick straight eights? Me- "no, it has a flat four"
then- "WOW!!! Those jugs must be huge!" Me pulling my hands up showing the size of a 1500 jug. them in disbelieve.
there is a lot more. This old racer

my neighbor who is 15 and in german class and has no common sense asked about my '72 ghia
" did you have to go to germany to buy that?"
-"yeah!"- Cool

at school i get alot too
"hey wheres that car from?"
- "Germany" -
" i bet that cost alot to ship over here!" Rolling Eyes

girl: "what are those holes (louvers ) in the back for?"
- i lift open the engine lid and she says "you have two motors?"
- " no just one" -
" so why do you have a spare in the back?"
- "no thats the one that always powers the car that uses air to cool itself" -
" but why are there holes in the back?" Mad

" how old is that car man?"
- " 33 years old" -
" and it still runs!!!"

the most frequent one is " did you built that car?" or " is that a stick shift?"

"why aren't there any seat belts in back?"

" your 6'4"! how do possibly fit in that car?"

" you should buy a honda man!"
-" FU never!"

girl(same one) "where are the power windows"
-"this car doesn't have them, it doesn't even have power steering or power brakes"-
" how can you drive this?"
-"im very strong"-

" why is there rust on it?"

" whats your horsepower?"
-"about 70, it was 60 stock"-
" have you ever gone faster than 45?
-" ive done 104 dude Rolling Eyes it only weighs 1800lbs"-
" so that probably took like five minutes to get to 80 huh?"

same question on horsepower an then i told him the cars weight and he said so, "weight doesn't matter, it's horsepower"

People at gas stations always ask me if I want to sell it. I tell them no and they give me this pissed off look. I always get TONS of stupid questions about my engine.

I had a 20-ish guy come by to look at my old Cadillac CDV.

He was pretty into it, but then he saw my '85 GL and pronounced it "Pimpin'!". Funny, I always associated pimps with old Coupe DeVilles more than Vanagons...

I'm getting tired of the pimp my ride comments, and the fucking "you paid how much for that piece of shit?"

Find me a better one for cheaper, or shut your fucking mouth.
