Most outrageous questions about your subie

Im pretty sure some of you out there has had your fair share of "weird" questions about your WRX/STi (or as i like to call them, stupid questions. but im trying to be nice.) from wannabe enthusiasts all over. I figured i would make this thread to share some of the stories and questions i have recieved from people who claim the WRX/STi is their dream car.

Questions like "Hey man! Is that thing turbo'd?" or "thats my dream car! what kind of car is this again???"

What kind of questions has everyone else got from people all around

"I was looking at those, but then I wanted something with 4WD that would be better in the snow (pointing over towards an expedition)".

Yeah, I see lots of expeditions for winter rallys. And of course Subarus can't have 4WD because they're so small. [/sarcasm]

I don't even have a Subie, but I know a guy with a 2.5RS GC and this other "wannabe enthusiast" kid...... (P.S.- The 2.5rs has a wrx 2.0 motor with at least a 20G turbo and upgraded TMIC)

I was telling my friend about his car and that he was could run 400+hp at like ~20psi on race gas and he told me that he needs to get a turbo and then he'll really bring in the power.

Ummm... it's already turbo, what do you think I meant by psi? tire pressure?

edit- I think someone has this as their signature on this forum. "that things got turbo?"

Taco Bell drive thru... it was a sunday morning. coming home from the bar i used to sing and play at on the weekends. I pull around to the window to pay and get my food. and the guy hands me my food. and immediatley starts "WHOAAA, I thought they only made these in japan!!! I bet this thing is Fast isnt it? My dad has a Roush mustang, you should race him!!" on and on and on and on. and im just replying with "yup" over and over again. Till finally he asks the magic question. "So what year is this? a 2008 model?" At that point i couldnt help myself but to laugh and drive off because my food was getting cold and i couldn't keep a straight face and say "no, its actually a 2010. japan is ahead in automotive engineering. Arnt you glad you got to see a future generation WRX?"

Eh, can't we commiserate without getting into a bitch session? Bleh, threads like this seemed doomed to be locked because people take it too far.

Respect other cars, respect other enthusiasts. "My car is better than your car" stuff is pointless and Juvenile.

I've had a cop come up to me and a bunch of subaru buddies in a parking lot and say "hey you guys can stay as long as you dont do burnouts". we just shook our heads and were all like "AWD!!!"

I was sitting in line at a car wash one day and this guy in front of me (in a 4-runner) got out, walked back to me and said.. "Hey... I've been thinking about buying one of these Saab's.. how much did you pay for it?" ... at least he was in the ball park though.
