The Irish Republican Army? You mean INS, Immigration and Naturalization Services. haha, i know its late.

I get the "nice camaro" thing too, Im not sure if I can get mad about it much because they are both the same car, just different bumpers, headlights, taillights, wheels, hoods, and badging. But I do always correct them and get the old "yeah WHATEVER! same thing" which makes me even more angry and I just want to choke them.

I took my 1st Z into autotech after my h/c swap to scan some codes it was throwing (still untuned). My autotech teacher heard it idling and started to tell me how bad its missing, i replied "no it just idles a lil rough because i just got done throwin a cam in there" "cam aint big enough to do that" then some random other dumb *** teacher chimed in too "Yep i can hear it, its miss firing alright" .

I had Nitto's on my car and some guy asked me if those are whitewalls. I was concerned that breathing the same air could have caused me medical problems.

Good stuff. Some favorites I've gotten-
ws6 as it sits loping- "Cool car! got anything done to it?"
In my dad's '02 SOM m6 Firehawk Formula- "my buddies got one just like it"
In my old '68 Firebird with chrome 350 emblems on the hood- "whats it got a 396?"
Never mind how many times someone tried to tell me that my '98 Formula was a V6. No one could ever grasp the concept of what a Formula is.

Some guy came upto me last year and asked me what I had done to my "Iroc" So I just went along with it and told him headers and an intake. He said, "Oh man, you don't even have a chip in it yet? My friend has a chip in his Iroc and it gave him 50hp!" I just nodded and said "I guess I have to get me one of them then."

Same guy asked me if I still had my Iroc a few weeks ago, so I said I did. He said he has some "Radial T/A" tires he had for sale. He was saying how they are the best tires ever made and how great they hook and he couldn't even break them loose if he tried. So I told him I'd keep it in mind.

Some guys were talking to me about my car looking at my back tires (315s) and said "Damn, how did you fit them tires in there, what are they 50 series??" "Well they are 315/35/17s" They just gave me a blank stare, and looked at each other, "Yeah, they must be 50 series."

Can't wait for all the missfiring, exhaust leak, and barley running comments I will get this year with the new cam!

I think some of us spend entirely too much time on this website (myself included) and expect every slapdick kid/old-man/chick to know everything about cars.
A kid at the exhaust shop (drove a 97 cobra) started talking about how Trans-Am where too fast, but he thought he could take a camaro.

I instantly thought this guy was a dumbass, but in retrospect he was just not knowledgable about GM cars and wanted to strike up a conversation with the guy driving a h/c/nitrous WS6. I would probably sound pretty stupid too if I went to a ferrari convention (I assume those rich dudes don't meet in walmart parking lots). The only thing i know about those cars is that my broke *** can't afford them.

For instance, the WS6ed said

Quote:

Now everybody step back and pretend that they are not semi-knowledgable about these cars. How does average joe distinguish Trans-Am(v8) from Firebird(v6)? The Body style (most noteably the rear wing). Is it really that suprising that someone would think that you drive a v6?

What about the people who think cams are "exhaust leaks" or that the car is missfiring? They aren't stupid, they just have never heard a cammed car before, and honestly some of our cars, to the untrained ear, sound like they are about to fall apart. My car (relatively mild cam) sounds like it is going to stall on a cold winter morning. I can imagine that my grandmother would probably think that the car wasn't running right if she heard it.

Just my .02.

he is right but people that call trans ams camaros when it says trans am on the side need to open their eyes.

i had some girl argue with her boyfriend that my car was a firebird they thought but it says banshee on the side and they thought that was a model of car i just stook back and watched them stare in confusion. finally they setteled on it being a firebird.

Not totally related but still funny as hell.....My wife (g/f at the time) can distinguish the difference between V6 and V8 cars pretty easily...Mustangs, firebirds, camaros, etc. She was at a red light when some dude in a Mustang pulled up beside her....she glanced over at the car and the guy when he pulled up:

Guy: "Yea you want this car dont you"
Wife: "Its a V6"
Guy: speachless, face gets red and drives away, OWNED

I couldnt stop laughing when she came home and told me that.

had an old guy ask me if my car was my dad's car from college...my dad had a brown '78 'vette. i was driving my partiot red metalic '95 z28. oh well.
had a young guy tell me is cavalier could beat me because his brother's 5.0 only beat him by 2 lengths. i proceded to beat his brother's 5.0 by 4 lengths.
my fav was when the kid who took my car to prom (responsible and close family friend's son) said that he heard that my car was one of the fastest cars in the in all the surrounding towns...lol...oh the things high school kids say these days!
