Talking Funniest misinformed GTO fan

I just had the attendant at Wendy's drive through tell me they liked my GTO and asked if Mitsubishi was the only ones who made them.

Also have heard: Honda and Grand Prix.

I've had people refer to my car as a pontiac gt, ford gt, and a mustang.

whatever. it comes with the ambiguous nature of the car and the ignorance of the general public.

when people display this kind of behavior, i correct them by saying i drive a jelly bean or a throat lozenge. it serves to end the conversation with either a quizzical stare, curious laugh, or both.

Agree with post 13, just close your eyes,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and don't attempt to tell us you have never been with an ugly woman before either, the BS flag will get thrown on that too.


My favorite is when they ask if it's a V6 due to the 6.0 emblem on the trunk. I don't disappoint them, I say yes it is. The next question is why does it run so rough, I just tell them it's a tad bit rich.

I was at the emissions station a few months ago and the guys liked my car. The one guy was walking around it saying "you don't see many of these anymore, very nice 6 cylinder tuner car."

I was recently told my car sounds like a GTO but looks like a GT6.

I just said, "Okay."

I had a guy last weekend tell me that he remembered when GTOs were actually muscle cars. I don't know what he thought was under the hood.

Your reply should be, "So Ferrari made a muscle car?"

That usually shuts em up. If such a person persists, cite the fact that the only "real GTO" is a ferrari. All the 60-70's "GTO" were just LeMans and Tempests with a big engine and a badge.

Try explaining the Holden conversion. Most people don't know what a "new" GTO looks like much less a CV8R. I told one person It was imported and less than 600 are running around the states.Technically I wasn't lying if you consider its a Pulse red M6.

I get all kinds of stupid BS....
Is it a v6?
Is it the factory exhaust? (kooks and catless with a cam)
Nice GT!
I tell the story of "Is it a v6 (to what I thought was a car guy" and get "Oh it is a v8?"
Best of all a Wendy's drive through woman ask "You put a dump truck engine in dat cah?

Apparently my lawn worker guy thinks my car is a "cheavy" haha.... And a tech at the dealership I work at asked me what motor was in it. I said. "it's the six." Apparently he was convinced they made 6 cylinder FWD versions of our cars too....
