Default What happens when your car stands out

This is sort of a short kind of pointless but still funny story.

Pretty much every car guy on the base knows my miata or has heard something about it. So im driving off base today and behind me i see this guy that has a AP2 S2000. Its got some work done, suspension exhaust the basic stuff. He revs and pulls past me so i in turn throw some boost and at the next light he pulls up and is shaking his head. I rolled down my window and asked him what was up, he said and i quote "nah dude i didnt know it was that miata. im not ******* with your car." I bust out laughing and carry on my way. Like i said pointless but i felt like sharing.

I have no idea who you are or anything about your miata. So apparently youre not as notorious as you think.

you guys do realize that i bought Fast Colts miata like 5 months ago. or did everyone forget the long *** thread about him selling it...and my intro thread about how i bought his miata. you know what **** it. i dont get what the **** is wrong with you people. forgive me for sharing anything that happens to me outside of me saying im showing up for a dyno day or a car cruise. the title for this section was BS. so thats what i did i was TRYING to bs with you guys but no because no one remembers that i own a miata im not allowed to BS in the BS section.

Funny, I don't know who he is or the story to the sale/buy. BUT, I think he's right and you should all fight to the death to protect his right to say whatever he wants to say.

Who the **** is fast colt?

If you say "eliminator" or "big gulp" or "blue potato", people know what youre talking about, those are well known ppl/cars.
Hell even 18psi is know around the net (since hes a forum *****, lol)


So please enlighten us about your setup. It doesnt look like youve made an introductory or build thread.
Are you making 500 hp or something?

Same thing with my Miata on bases. "Oh you're the guy with the red Miata. Is it turbo?" is what I usually get.

I was thinking when I left Goodfellow AFB that FRT-Fun's car would start getting mistaken for mine, especially since we were in the same unit.

EDIT - When I remove the turbo and swap in a bigger n/a engine, it'll be more sleeperish when parked, and also faster.

I certainly hope so. I'm half tempted to start a dibs thread for my turbo stuff. The swap's more than a year away at this point though.

When you come out of a walmart and people are leaning on your car posing for a picture. That is when you know it stands out. ******* douchebags said it looked like "some kind of little people car"

I don't give a rats *** what you bought. It's what you built that impresses me. Anyone can get a loan, but knowledge is priceless.
