Dumb and bizarre comments


I think this thread should be for all those strange comments we get as car owners, regardless of year.

 

I have  a 51 Pontiac 4 door which I keep in my garage covered up, so even if my garage is open, no neighbours see it. I bought a parts car last summer exactly the same year and specs, thinking I would pull off some trim pieces and whatever and then just scrap the rest. When the car showed up, and as it sat in my driveway I would get looks and comments like you sure have a lot of work ahead of you there heheh.

I eventually did what I had to do and scraped the car. But now when I drive my real car out those same people walk by and are amazed that the car is now running. Tonight I got wow you got that thing running and did so much body work.

What can I say people are idiots.

 

Pic is of the scrap car. I loved the patina colour on this car.

The world is full of dumb and bizarre comments! You only need to scroll a few pages on Facebook to see that.

I still can't get over some of the stuff I see on Kijiji. eg: Bumpers are often referred to as "bumbers" and rotors are "routers". Brakes are "breaks". How many different spellings have you seen for "Parisienne"?

I would just let them think you are a real genius, and that you turned trash into treasure.

A neighbour of mine whom I nickname "The Mosquito" and other neighbours nickname "The Village Idiot" has an interesting theory on under what environmental conditions pressure-treated lumber rots*.

 

*I do know PT lumber eventually rots, but his theory has to do with whether it is facing a body of water (no matter how far away the body of water is).blankstare

I just got a reply from a guy in New Brunswick selling a Jeep part I want. I asked if he would ship to PEI. His reply: "If you can find out the shipping cost I'll send it to you". 

Um.. I don't know the weight of the part, or the size of the box he is using... confuse

 Ha ha... I agree with that.  Nothing wrong with your neighbors thinking that you are some kind of miracle worker, as long as they don't start wanting you to perform the same kind of miracles on their cars... wink

A number of years ago i took my 57 Pontiac to a big show in western New York. My 57 was parked with the hood up and i was showing off my 261 in liner six. I over heard someone say to someone else........... "Here is one of those Canadian abortions." I wasted no time in saying to the fool.......... " I am real proud of my Canadian abortion." He was embarrassed, by the look on his goofy face.
