Is that a kit car?
Happened again today. Stopped in to a store to get a drink and the guy behind the counter says, "Is that a kit car?" I said, "No." He said, "I didn't think so but I had to ask." I said, "I know, that is the most common question I'm asked."
I'm starting to think a kit car with a Pontiac engine would be more readily accepted by the general population.
Yokel: "Is that one of them kit cars?"
Yokel: "What's it got in it?"
Me: "A Pontiac V-6"
Yokel: "Wow, that thing must FLY!! Cool!! It looks just like a Ferrari!!"
I think I might just start telling people that it's a kit car. If they want to look under the hood I can tell them its a 6 cylinder and the extra spark plug wires are "dummies" and I bought Ferrari valve covers. They will appreciate the lengths I went to preserve "authenticity".
