: Funny questions about SVTF
10-04-2004, 04:49 PM
I posted this question to another focus related forum, but there are tons of different folks on both so if you've seen this one already skip it but here is the question: after spending a recent Saturday at my local car show and being peppered with funny questions about my SVTF what is the funniest or silliest thing someone has said about your SVTF or asked about it?

What kind of car is that? Hardy, har, har!
Needles to say I did not answer him because we were at the back of the car and I still have the emblems!

I have been asked at least five or six times how they fit that V8 under the hood! they assume I guess that is has the cobra V8 I did have one guy ask how it ran with the cobra V8 :)

I guess my favorite so far was the teenaged dude a few weeks ago at the car show "So that thing will go zero to sixty in five seconds Right?" if only that was true![thumb]

An older guy asked me how I liked my PT Cruiser. [rolleyes] A lot of people ask me what shade of purple my car is.
An older guy asked me how I liked my PT Cruiser.
Ahhhhh!!!!![?|] I think I would have hit him.....really hard.
Only comment I've ever had was when I filled up with gas one day.
This nice lady was looking at the car, then caught my attention;
"Wow!" she says, "That's a fOCUS? Boy, did Ford ever improve their looks!"[:D]

Well this doesnt directly pertain to a SVTF. But one guy asked me if i the SVTF supercharger is a good mod to do. The funniest part was that he owned a 2000 ZX3. its a shame to hear such nonsense from fellow foci owners.

Had someone ask if it was rear wheel drive once.

i have had about 15 people ask me what kind of VW it is.

someone once said to me.."so that cars in EVO territory right?" i was liek yea i wish!!! lol

I had someone ask me "That's the one with the 'five o' in it, right?" LMAO. Then when we were at the Mazda dealer looking for an Rx-8 for my mom a saleman told me I was dumb for spending all that extra money just for looks, I was like F' you buddy, we're looking to make a sports car purchase and you're telling me you know jack, good move.
PS - Silver03SVT, did you get my PM?

I get the purple question alot especially if it's under lights at night

I hate when people call my car purple. I drove past a friends house when I first got it. She called me and said, "Was that you going by in the purple car?" I told her it's blue quite a few times, and she only believed me when she saw it in person in sunlight.
I also get people making fun of my turnsignals, but I've grown used to it... at least I don't have the "Korean Chimes" or purple gauges like my mom and older bro's Hyundai's!

It just goes to show what a legend SVT has become. I have yet had anyone try to race me, not that I would anyway, but everyone seems intimidated by the little bugger. Afraid they would get the asses handed to them. Kinda amusing.

i lvoe when soemoen says wow sweet focus and his friend is like no dude its a svt and they seemed amazed lol. i went to my local car hangout on friday nights. within 5 minutes fo me beign there i had 6 guys that wanet dto race me to see what the svt had and questions out the ass

A guy at work when I first got the car said, "I like your new Mazda."
10-05-2004, 11:08 AM
I get the supercharged v8 thing alot, and i also had some guy ask me why i bought the svtf, when i could of gotten an sti for teh same price...i just told him i was a ford guy

I had the car saleslady tell me my car had a turbo...i laughed and turn politely, didn't want to hurt her feelings by knowing more about the car than she did. I get people that ask "wow this car has a really nice ride, what is it?" when i pick them up in the morning. Makes me feel good.
10-05-2004, 12:46 PM
Oh! Just had another one said to me which is the biggest burner to me.
"What a cute car!"
I hate that so much! Argh!
10-05-2004, 12:56 PM
I hate it when women tell me my car is "pretty" lol that just sounds awful to me. I don't know which is worse having a "pretty car" or a "cute car"

aahhhh the struggles of us lonely SVTF owners. I hate explaining to everyone what SVT stands for...most people think its a regular focus and wonder why its so loaded to the titties and looks so good.
The best is when you drive past a fellow SVTer...I drove past an SVT contour the other day, and the two guys in the car nearly fell out of their windows staring at my Focus....felt goood. [thumb]

I had an old guy in a lightning drive past me the other day and he honked his horn and waved, i felt like his little brother next to him
If I had a dime for every time someone called my car "pretty".......[:D]
Funny thing is, it's been mostly 55-65 year old guys that have said that.[eek]
Course, maybe it's cause their wives like my car so much too.[;)]
BTW, these comments have come mostly from the folks I AutoCross with.
They've got their early Mustangs/Camaros/Mavericks/Firebirds, and then I show up....
