Nice car man!

I have to post this because it doesn't happen that often.I come out of the convenience store yesterday and two guys are starring at me as I get in my redline. So at first I was thinking, they were looking for directions or something.

They say:

"Nice car man, stage 2 right?, that's a fast car" - I have a stage 2 plate inside the cabin so they saw it as they walked by.

Turns out the guy had a 04 with stage 2 years ago and wanted to check mine out.

Nice talking to people that understand our cars and compliments were appreciated.


As we parted he said I would not even drive it.



But Nah, the experience is worth more to me

I've had similar experiences including a guy at a street corner opposite from me yelling "daaaammm that car is sweeeet".
Had two guys in a stripped Miata rev at me and when I punched it the passenger nearly shat himself from the sc scream next to him. When they caught up they were laughing and said it was the craziest thing they have heard. I've had lots of comments at the track as well. I plan to keep this car till it turns to dust.

In the 7 years I've had my car, I've only been asked about it one time when I was filling it up at a gas station.

I saw a guy admiring it and he finally got the nerve to walk over.

When he did, I was so excited to finally be able to talk about the supercharger.

But instead, all he asked about was the rear doors!

I am coming up on my 3 year anniversary with my redline and I have gotten many comments

the one from the other day was the best one that i got where I approached.

---------------------------------------
I got the rear door - wow that's cool - like your doors a few times in the store parking lots..

Gas station is where I get the most comments - one time, the guy says, "did you do something to your ion, because

mine doesn't sound like that"?

So I was like it's the special edition version,redline, and get one if you can, fun car


I usually get this "in the club" kind of experience when I get gas , never had this with my previous cars


I also got one time a neighbor who says I hear you all over the place - is it that loud ??


I was like -- it's an overlooked sports car, lol
