So I'm replacing some dash bulbs when a hobo walks over amazed at my Fiero. He said he used to work on cars but didn't seem to know anything about Fieros. But he pretended to and it was quite amusing. "These new cars now days get so much power in a small engine", "Doesn't this have around 250hp", "It's got a turbo right?", "I heard these hit 150mph easy" These among other quotes from the fellow. I just nodded and agreed with him and showed him around the car. It made my evening.
I have a homeless guy that hangs out in our shopping center, he asked me the other day if my car had a 6 or a 4 cyl. I told him it's got a TDI diesel, which blew his mind. A few days later he came in and asked how did you do that ? Told him I just wrote a check ! He laughed, thought it was cool swap.
