What funny, unusual, cruel, complimentary or otherwise noteworthy things have people said about your car?

The other day I took a business colleague out for lunch. He climbs into my bug and says

"Hey!! this is just like Pimp My Ride!!"

The #1 question:
What kind of car is that?

The #2 question:
That's a Volkswagen?

I swear no one in Atlanta knows what a Karmann Ghia is.

I took my mom to the grocery store and decided to wait in the car while she shopped. After 10 minutes or so, a woman and two young girls around the age of 12 walk by and start to get into their new Jetta. As they are getting into the Jetta, I over hear one of the girls saying, "hey, he has a volkswagen too". The other girl replied, "yeah, but ours is prettier". I busted out laughing, and they thought that I was an idiot. Razz They're correct! Cool

Most people don't know what the hell I see in these things, or think I'm too poor to buy a new car... Oh well.

And once again:
(after someone barges into the gas station and yells "Alright, who drives the Volkswagen?!"):

"You cut your front springs to lower it? (std beetle)"

"Aren't these Japanese?"

"This is Rear-Engine, Front wheel drive, correct?"

"Is that a ***whatever year the one they used to have was, usually like a 10 year gap***?"

"Hey dude, I think your back suspension is broken! You're wheels are all kicked sideways."

"Where's the radiator, up front?"

I have old guys come up to me and say "I like your bug!" And I'll say "Thanks" or something, then they just stand there staring at me like they're expecting something from me.

...and one time some dude came by in a dodge dakota, and after staring at my car for like 6 minutes in the parking lot with this "whoa" look on his face, sees me looking at him and starts with the "When're you gonna buy another car? VWs are for faggots, that looks gay." then drives off with his head still hanging out the window looking back. Laughing

WHAT FUN!
