i've come to the conclusion that i just can't be around people who don't understand that a car isn't an appliance.

i realized this the other night...i was hanging out with this girl i used to date, and we started talking about cars...and then that's ALL we talked about. discussing "future plans," except instead of talking about kids and white picket fences, it was engine swaps, turbo kits, etc...

what do i spend all my free time doing?...researching more junk for my car. helping other people with questions...etc. etc. etc...it's become an integral part of my day. where does all my extra pocket money go? into my car.

will it ever end? friends that just don't get it look at me like i'm crazy.

My girlfriend knows that I love my car just as much as her. About 25% of our conversations is about the Impreza. She used to get jealous, but she is calmed down now.

Speaking about talking about cars, I was at the DIY car wash yesterday and this guy came out of his Honda CRV and started talking to me about his SE-R at home. I was like... "oh, the new Sentra SE-R spec V?" He said, "no, just SE-R. It's a 240SX, but it's fast." He asked me why I didn't get the WRX because the RS is slow. (duh, too oogly-boogly for my tastes and insurance is a pain in the fart hole [no intention to put down the MY02 RS owners]) He eventually made it clear that he was selling that Nissan. I was calm and cool about it though. I asked him how many HP is his SE-R. His reply, "140 bhp, but it's ONLY 2500 lbs. The car also has soo much torque which makes it really fast." That's when I figured out that this guy knows little to nothing about cars, or the Impreza for that matter. I just turned away to what I was doing and he left. No sense in teaching. :curse:

lol! not that "normal" people lack knowledge about cars, it's just that you guys (and myself... I think;) ) know too much about cars. *sigh* normal people will never understand our obsession.

Yeah while wating for my car on order ...ALL I did is talk about the car. Now when I talk with my X she says
"Do you care more about me or that car?"
'Now or if I had the car, when we were dating?'
"Both"
'Well now the car'
"What!?!"
'If I had the car while we were dating ...the car'
"WHAT!?! You pick the car over sex?"
'No, but I don't have to pay alot of money for the car to show me a good time, nor do I have to spend time listen to its shit before I gget to ride it either.'



:biggest: I still pick sex over the car I ain't gonna lie, but not sex with her! :nuetron:

My wife thinks I am insane sometimes too...

That's why we had to get her a Sentra SE-R, so she could know what torque was all about! ;)

Haha, same here. I think I've convinced her to get a Subaru though. :D

My little moto when it comes to woman and my car.

WHY A CAR IS BETTER THAN A WOMAN
"My car doesnt care how many car magazines I buy."

"My car doesnt care if I take another car for a test ride."

"My car doesnt care if I check out other cars."

"My car doesnt care how many cars I have."

"My car doesnt care if I have photos of my past cars hanging around."

"I am not jealious of the man who works under the hood of my car."

*Flame suite on*
"My car has never once bled."
*Flame suite off*

and last.....

"My parents dont keep into touch my cars once I get rid of them."


I hope me spending money on my car never stops. Life with a car with no HP would stink.

Wow, a 240SX SE-R, shoulda asked him where you can get one of those.
Oops, my bad. I feel soo bad for not buying the 'sooo fast/torquey' 240sx SE-R... Ha! I wouldn't wanna touch it even with a 10 foot pole. AWD all the way, BABY!!!

I was being sarcastic. There's no such car. There's a 240sx, and there's a Sentra SE-R, but no 240SX SE-R. So that guy didn't even know his own car.
