The guy I hired to paint my house pulled up my drive way and saw me polishing my car.

He started asking me what car it is and commented that it looks nice. I explained to him my car was a Mitsubishi, at which point he seem to loose interest and started rambling about his VW and how with the V6 and everything it's hella faster than most cars on the road.

He then ask me in all seriousness, "so how fast does your 4 cyl go?" "4 cyl?" He's like, "well it says VR4 right? You know like the VR6 on the VW, the 4 must stand for the cyl right?"

Haha... Now I finally understood why I get challenged by all those Accord, Jetta, Tiburon drivers... Cause my car is only a 4cyl. of course!

I was sorely tempted... But alas, I had better things to do, like finish waxing my car before the winter sets in and it starts snowing.

Someone said something similar when I had my modded 97. I had him sit in the passenger seat. I then permanently embedded him into the seat with a little boost. :D

people underestimate I4's thinking it couldnt do anything. well drop the wieght of a vr-4 and put a eclipse engine in it and get it up to 600HP...you guys heard of the top secret supra with the mr2 motor? it does 200MPH. Plus since the I4 have less torque you dont have to worry about your tranny breaking from a nice 9000k RPM drop.

I was at a car show one time. It was a local one, me and a friend had to video tap some of it for a STLP (Student Technology Leadership Program). It was basically made up of all older cars, some were cool, others where not. I was the only import car there. While we was there, I had my car parked with the rest of them and hood up. Some guy walked by it and said "look its a 4 banger...". I can't believe some people, those people can't even read. I guess they didn't know they made imports in V6s even though it says it right on the engine. :rolleyes:
