    1.This happened on my first date in college.
    date gets in my car, I start it up and drive off. A min later she says " I hate loud cars that aren't fast." I just ignore her and try to have a sense of understanding because I can get why a girl may not like a loud car.
    After the date on the drive back I pull up next to a blue 350z with a body kit and massive spoiler. Date says "man don't you wish you had that?" At this point I'm genuinely annoyed, so I look over at the guy and give a little rev, he returns the favor. Light turns green and we both go WOT, I get about a car on him @ 70mph and turn it off. She then says "well that was unexpected." Needless to say that was the last time I talked to her lol.

    2. I'm at a performance shop here in arlington (gearheads) about to get gears installed. I'm talking to the owner of the shop when the dude who's going to be working on my rear comes out from the garage area to the front. He sees my maro and asks what i've got done to my firebird.....at this point i'm scared for my rear, and I'm just giving the employee a blank stare. The owner turns to the guy and goes dude....It's a camaro. Thankfully nothing went wrong with the install lol.

    3. I'm at an autozone looking for an k&n filter, can't find the right one so I go to ask an employee. He asks for make and model and I tell him it's a z28 camaro. Then he says "V6 right?" Really dude? You work at a freaking auto parts store.

    4. First day i got my car my mom comes out to look at it. She looks at it and then asks my dad "what did you say it was honey? A Camry?" Me: "yes mom it's a camry." My brother starts laughing hysterically lol.

    02 ss camaro

    I bought my SS new in '02. A year later a guy that works me with bought a used '00 WS6. Day after he buys it he tells everybody at work that the T.A. is a half second faster in the 1/4 than a SS because of the ram air hood.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Didn't happen to me but to a friend. He has (among other cars) a 77 Porsch 911 Turbo that he bought new in Germany when he was stationed there and brought it back when he rotated.

    A couple of years ago while doing the Bi-Annual smog check to keep it registered, the kid doing the check opens the trunk and asks, "Is this thing electric? Where's the engine?" My buddy calmly answered, "Yeah, it's electric..."

    2005 Corvette LS2/M6 Magnetic Red Metallic (What else would it be?) w/ Cashmere interior

    2002 Z28: NBM/Tan, MTI smooth lid, smooth bellows, !AIR, !cats, 1-3/4" QTP SS LT's, 2-1/2" TD's with X-pipe, MagnaFlows dumped at axle, custom welded SFC's, MidWest Chassis body mount adjustable T/A, 3400 stall, 3.23 gears (was 2.73). Tuned: 343rwhp/357rwt (before TD's). Best: 12.559 @ 108+, 1.73 60' @ 3500' DA w/MT ET Street DR's.

    2000 Camaro SS

    During my header install and the following O2 sensor nightmare that followed:
    Me: I need 2 Bosch 13111's
    Advance Auto Parts Counter Dude: I've got 1
    Me: Can you cross reference to see if there's anything else? I need the longer wired sensor.
    AAPCD: What's it for
    Me: 2000 Camaro but run it on the same year Corvette
    AAPCD: They have the same engine though
    Me: The exhaust is set up different and the Corvette ones have a longer wiring harness. I have longtube headers and need a longer wire to reach the sensor hole.
    AAPCD: But they have the same engine
    Me: Where's the closest Auto Zone?

    Talking to the husband of one of my coworkers. (He has a 5 speed 3rd Gen)
    Him: What's done to yours?
    Me: Everything in my signature
    Him: Any future plans
    Me: H/C/I, Torque Converter, blah, blah, blah
    Him: Yeah I need a torque converter.
    Me: Why don't you just rev it a little higher and drop the clutch?

    2000 Camaro SS

    Riding to the island with a coworker and we stopped next to a Monte Carlo SS(Late Model)
    After leaving the light (not racing)
    Him: Dude, you should have run her.
    Me: Why, what's the point?
    Him: She had an SS. I could have been a good run
    Me: I have an SS too
    Him: Oh, so it would've been close?

    Same guy about me racing his g/f in her 2008ish GT
    Me: I'll run her when ever if she really wants to.
    Him: She rally wants too
    Me: No, she just thinks she does.
    He thinks I'm bullshitting so we go for a ride and afterwards...
    Him: Dude, I'm impressed
    Me: You still want her to race me.
    Him: Her car is still governed so it really wouldn't be fair.
    Me: I'll be way ahead of her before the governor's a factor
    Him: her's cuts off at 120 so it's just not fair

    What is with girls arguing about the performance of a Mustang being greater? I hear it all the time when I'm out and talking cars with a group of people. Is it that there is just more Mustangs on the road so that's all they're accustomed to? I used to argue back, but now I just keep my mouth shut, it's not worth the wasted breath. Pissing contests don't amount to the truth... the road does.

    **Edit** I shouldn't say girls, giving the assumption it's all of them... so let me rephrase, ALL girls EXCEPT Dena and the female members of this forum!!
