Funny Things People Have Said About Your S2000 - Part 1
From mistaken identities to confusing questions, our members have heard it all.
1. Mistaken Identity?
Like many other cars, a lot of people just don't seem to know what the heck the S2000 is. Even though it doesn't really look like anything else on the road. Or maybe it's just us.
Some ricer once asked RazorV3 "is that a Honda 2000?" And that isn't even the worst offender on our list.
CyrisA once had his father proclaim "I can't recognize your car in a crowd. That Mazda Miata, Toyota, your Honda, they all look the same." Sheesh.
A wise guy 12-year old in jhs914's neighborhood once told him "Nice BMW Z4" and exclaimed, "That is just a BMW Z4 clone." That kid needs his parents to buy him some glasses.
Clearly, nobody knows what dxlst drives: He's heard "props, JDM approved" from a kid, been asked "is that the new Dodge?" by a lady at a car show, and "is that the new Cobra?" from an old man at the post office. But the best comment might have come from some random kid, who exclaimed "Maaaaaaaaaaan! that's one baaaadass RX-7!" His parents should be ashamed.
2. Silly Questions
For us hardcore car guys, there's nothing more cringeworthy than silly questions. Especially from those who try and act like they know anything about cars.
Apparently, Elizer gets asked, "why is the front so long?" A lot.
Some guy once asked Willie Gee, "Was that car in a James Bond movie?"
A guy in a truck cut across four lanes of traffic to ask benny, "What does that cost? Eighty grand?"
Upon finding out that his S2000 had a four-banger under the hood, a construction worker exclaimed to heffergm, "Four cylinders, eh? Do you have trouble getting up hills?"
3. 'Enlightening' Comments
A lot of these comments are so off-the-mark that they deserve their own special recognition.
After throwing on three coats of Zaino, geekd had his buddy's girlfriend exclaim "It's so shiny! It looks laminated!"
Cone once took a young man for a ride, only to hear him exclaim "damn this thing's got a lot of torque!" Yea, sorry kid, but not so much.
A ricer once demonstrated his vast knowledge to swtazn97l by exclaiming "I've heard your car has a B-16 Spoon engine." But it might pack even more heat than that under that hood. In fact, some guy once told RazorV3 "with a hood that long, it has to have at least a V10 sitting under there." Indeed.
And apparently, the S2000 is a pretty dangerous vehicle to drive. At least according to Hate Me's boss, who (after noticing that he drove one) said: "Obviously we understand that Mark doesn't care about safety."
4. Total Magnet for the Opposite Sex?
Turns out, driving an S2000 might also turn you into a giant chick magnet. At least that's what a lot of people think, anyway.
A ten-year-old neighbor of meriggi exclaimed, "I bet you can pick up girls in that car!!!!" To which he replied, "Yes I can!"
A Honda salesman once informed CyrusA "With this car, you will get all the b*****s at your school!" Talk about an effective sales technique. And that isn't even the only salesman touting the irresistible draw of the S2000. When he headed back to sign some paperwork, sickestS2000's sales guy asked him "Hey bro, did you get laid yet?" To which he didn't reply, so we'll have to assume no.
And maybe all those assumptions are actually true because a female gas station attendant told Popeye (speaking about his parked S2000) "It looks like sex just sitting there!"
5. Hilarious Conversations
A man can only put up with so many crazy comments and stupid questions before he just has to play along. And these guys did just that. At the expense of some poor bystanders, of course.
A guy at a gas station once asked ICEMAN666 "How much horsepower does it have?" When he told him it had 240 ponies, the man said: "V6, right?" Shocked to find out that the Honda had only an inline four under the hood, he proclaimed "Wow! It looks like a six cylinder!"
A friend of redsound told her friend "you have to see his car!!! it's sooo amazing!" But when he told the unsuspecting girl that he drove "just a Honda," she seemed unimpressed. Once they walked outside and she saw the car, the girl yelled "THAT'S NOT A HONDA!! THAT CAR IS NICE!!!"
Nice enough to pass for a much more expensive car, obviously. Lajster once got into a conversation with somebody at a car wash that sure thought so, anyway. When the person asked if he had change for $20, he replied that he did not. Surprised, the onlooker exclaimed, "I looked at your car and thought you'd have it for sure." And with a straight face, Lajster replied: "The car's not as expensive as it looks."
