Dumbest things you've heard non car people say

Recommended Posts

BigJoe_1

We've all been there, your mate who is brain dead when it comes to cars says something that makes you want to pull your hair out.

 

It always seems to happen at the worst possible times, when you're with people who are car literate and they say something that embarasses the both of you or they just make an ass of themselves so much that some of it rubs off on you and you can't help but feel embarassed to be near them at the time.

 

One of the worst I've ever heard is when I heard someone say "Plymouth stole Hemi Orange from Dodge", granted some people might not know that Chrysler owned both Dodge and Plymouth at the time but come on they even used the same engines in most of their cars so is it not common sense to know that they're both part of something together.

 

Let's hear the worst things you've ever heard.

 

PS: Sorry if there is a thread for this already, it seemed like a topic that may have already been created but I searched and couldn't find one.

Probably when one of my friends said he needed a 6 cylinder carburetor for his Camaro. He is a car guy though. I cut him slack since he's 17 and most 17 year olds have never heard of a carburetor.

 

Oh, and when people do sh*t like call a 350 Chevy a big block.

Average white guy

I once saw a dude look at an EFI badge and say "EFI, hmmm... what ever that means". It also really bugs me when jackasses call the Ford inline six a v6. I see it all the time on Craigslist.

I can't recall anything anyone has said to me in particular, but when I was younger and didn't know anything about cars I always thought "litres" as in 5.7L, 3.0L etc meant how many litres of fuel it took.

 

I had no idea it had anything to do with capacity and I was always one of these kids who called inline 6s a V6.

In case this is not sarcastic, it means Electronic Fuel Injection.

"So that car has an STI?" or, "Ha ha you said STI" when talking about a Subaru. Happens too often. Pisses me off to no end lol. Also, when people call the trunk the "hood" on a mid or rear-engined car.

I think they're both acceptable, EFI might be a trademark.

Derp...

 

The hood is the hinged cover that goes over the engine.

The trunk is the main storage compartment, I.E. not the engine bay.

"My car is 4 wheel drive! Why doesn't the car brake faster in snow?"

Oh, man, anything to do with cars and braking. Like, when you try to explain to someone that there is no difference in braking distance between a well-maintained, properly equipped eighteen-wheeler and a sedan, they look at you like you're the damaged one.

 

I also remember when a sales guy at a parts store tried to sell me injector cleaners for my bike. When I told him that it's a carb, he just stalled and walked off. Now, granted, there's no way he could have known, but I still enjoyed how quickly it got him off my case.

Classic expressions you hear in my country:

 

 

-"You bought a SEAT hahahaha Siempre Estas Apretando Tuercas" (You are always screwing bolts)

 

- "Alfa Romeo is unreliable."

 

- "A Golf is a Golf. "

 

- "The Renault R5 Turbo, when you turn a take a curve the turbo kicks in and you kill yourself". (popular in the 1980's)"

 

- "You bought a petrol car with 100.000km? That's engine is almost done you should have bought a diesel with the same km and it would last more."

 

- "Buy a diesel that is cheaper and it it faster" (Stock wise)"

 

- "Petrol? You are going to go bankrupt... Buy a diesel instead."

 

-"Why do you want a fast car when you can't speed?"

 

- "Opel is safer than any French car beacuse it's german"

 

- "RWD? You are going to kill yourself"

 

- "Small cars with a lot of BHP are dangerous." (refering too any GTI)"

 

-"I prefer having a crash with a Volvo 850 rather than a brand new Renault Clio".
