    Some Honda or Acura guy asked me if my car was supercharged. While the hood was up at a cruise night. I told him it was turbo. He says " I got one of those too!" He didnt seem to think my V6 was all that fast...

    My best friend works at Pep Boys as a mechanic. It's a job, not the greatest I know; but take what ya can get. Anyway, alot of the guys that work with him think 15-20psi is alot of boost. And they talk about running it on their "built" motors. When I tell them I run up to 28psi on pump gas and my motor was built in '86 they just look at me funny..

    At the track with the hood up, someone asks "Is that a 301?" Really? Of all the motors you can think of a 301 comes into your mind.

    I actually have a neighbor that wants me to finish mine so he can drive it.:rolleyes: He's been bugging me for years now but I'll never give him the keys even if he comes up with the cash to buy it. There are some people that should never own one of these cars and he's one of them.:D

    Mine still has to be the monkey who asked me "Why is the car all black?"

    Then he proceeded to argue with me, something to the likes of, "There's NO WAY it came from the factory in all black like this"

    Agreed. My Dad is an excellent driver and even he's a little extra cautious when driving my car just because of the way the power comes on so hard after a small delay. Anyone who doesn't know what these cars are like, should stay in the passenger seat. I stopped letting others drive it when the stock turbo came off as it was too much for some then at 20psi.

    Yesterday while pumping gas in the T, I had some white trash looking guy ask me "what size engine does it have?" I told him "just a six". Then he comes back with "what, a straight six?" :confused:

    I've also had people refer to my car as a "Monte Carlo" or a "Cutty" (Cutlass)

    Both from a TR owners buddy -

    "You are going to try and run 275's without notching the frame? We notched the frame to fit 255's."
    "You used lower springs to drop your car? You should have used drop spindles." o_O
