When I owned mine...I got asked on more than one occasion this question...

"Hey man, what kind of Ferarri is that?"...:rolleyes:

or my favourite when I had it...

"I was THIS close to getting one of those you know?"

I have been asked by a kid at school if i had VTEC ( I Used to own a 95 Integra) I said no, im like we dont have vtec in toyota's, and he said well you could....

"Hey I heard u have no engine in the front is that true?" Me "yes" them "i dont believe it, show me" I show them, and they are like "man thats crazy, how much did this car cost you?" Me "Enough" Them "How can a 17 year old afford a 23 Thousand dollar car" I just smile.

"Is your car FWD?"

"My friends MR2 can beat yours" Me "O ya whos your friend?" Them "Change the subject" (there are not alot of mr2's here)

"Is your mr2 supercharged, or twin turbo?"

"Are you getting those chimney scoops?" Then i have to explain why they are not good.

"What year is your car?" Me "1991" Them "No way, id say atleast it is a 2000"

those are some good ones :)
I get all sorts of weird questions and meet alot of "interesting" people. Some of them end up telling me their life story and won't let me leave...seriously haha this one trucker outside the carwash talked to me for over half an hour about his 40 year old daughter and her family and all his houses that he bought and sold..... ya i dont even know what happened there hahaha.

anyways, here are just a few off the top of my head :

"is this one twin turbo? oh its not? my friend has one and its a twin turbo"

"how do you fit in there?"

"do you have NOS"

"whats that noise (referring to bov)? is it NOS?"

"nice ferrari" :D

"whats a 'spoolin'??"

"you should race my friends 5.0L. its so fast!" ;)

thats all i can really think of right now. mabey ill remember some more later.

alot of people are amazed at the back window and how it curves (which it is pretty cool lookin, i dont even want to know how much it would be to replace!)... thats what Ive noticed alot of people comment on first.

oh ya and alot of the times when people ask what kind of car it is and I reply MR2, they think its a Mazda.

Haha ive heard the life stories before , remeber that one guy at VUB in calgary? hahaha and then they're are the guys who used to have the big block hot rods 40 years ago and used to outrun the cops out in Ponoka.

Here are a few of mine:

- What year is your ferrari?
- What kind of doctor are you? (wtf?)

My friends buddy at school today, told me this:

Him: I hear you have a mr2, is it turbo?
Me: No its twin entry turbo
Him: Same shit man
Me: No, its twin entry
Him: Its the same shit.
Me (getting agitated): I said no, twin turbo is 2 turbos, and twin entry is 1 turbo, with dual entry
Him: Same shit man, its all the same
Me (getting angry): One has one turbo, the other has 2 turbo.
Him: Well there are twin turbo mr2's
Me: No there arent man.

My friends were laughing, as he is trying to tell me what my car has, and he is telling them its the same shit, and all they did was laugh, and he was trying to make it look like I was weird by saying they are completely different.

Him: Whatever same shit.

Me: Ignore.....

Woman in late model Sienna "Why did you put that TOYOTA emblem on your car?
Me: "I didn't, it's a TOYOTA, ma'am. It's back in the days when TOYOTA had very special, very exciting cars."
Woman: "Very funny. Really, who makes it?"

10-21-2004, 07:24 PM
I've only had my car long enough to get two of these. First:

"Does it have Nos?" by some kid on a bike.
"No, but its supercharged" Me
"Is that the same as NOS?"
I left.

Second, there is some guy where I work who claims to know everything about performance. Firstly he told me to slow down he supercharger to make more boost. :dunno:
Then he wanted to look at my cars engine. He stood at the front of the car and demanded:
"Pop the hood"
"You wont get a very good look at the engine"
"Look I know more about cars than you do. I can see around all sorts of engine covers and cosmetics. Now pop the hood!"

I wish I had a camera to record the look on his face when he ended up staring at the spare tire.


Oh yeah, I hate it when people refer to my car as "cute"

10-21-2004, 09:58 PM

Does it have NOS?? How bout does it have a muffler? j/k

10-23-2004, 07:59 PM
"I thought it was black!?" (My car's colour is the midnight mica blue)

"Nice Del Sol!" - No comment.

Since when were 80s style vehicles cute?

Oh and also, a female friend of mine said the other night, "Oh my God! It feels like I'm in a space rocket or video game!"
