Wierd question at a cruisenight
09/08/09 at 05:01:57
 
While I was walking around checking out the cars at a cruisenight my wife stayed with my car . A guy asked my wife what my 71 AMX was before it was an AMX  Huh Huh . She told him it's always been a AMX . My wife found him very annoying when he insisted that it started off as something else  Roll Eyes Shocked . Where do these people come from ?

Next time tell her to say either a 71 Cuda or a 71 Mustange Grande . Then the guy will smile at her like he won the war or something . Then he will walk away . This is a much easier reply , then trying to eggsplain a point to someone who has no idea what is going on . It also makes this situation more fun , cause you can mentally play with these people and they just dont get it .
A few nights ago , a young lady called our house , she said she wasnt selling anything , but it was a company doing a poll of the local area . To see what radio ads or shows I listened to , to judge effectiveness of radio as an advertisement in local area . I said I,m sorry I,m deaf and I dont listen to the radio . She appologized for bothering me and got off the line as quick as she could .  
When people ask me stoopid questions about my cars I just point at the biggest , biker , farmboy looking guy in the crowd , or the skinniest dragged out punk I can see and say the car belongs to them and I dont know anything  about it ..77.

It was a Falcon from the road warrior Movie Paul Smiley That way you will have a movie car status  Grin Grin Sometimes it is easier to just agree and move on, or point at the big guy in the crowd as 77 said Grin SH

I htought that too Ralph, but didn't want to reduce all Pauls'  hard work. I also was thinking the dumb-a-- never heard of one since he didn't seem to know much about an AMX. He must have been a Fiat driver in the 70's  Grin Grin SH

Maybe so Steve, but did their mother just crawl out from under a rock? Sometimes I wonder if the 70's was a blur for too many people, that is why the most Awesome Pacer only lasted 5 years. Grin SH

Paul you had a Dodge rearend? No wonder wht was slowing it down!  Grin Grin Steve- Math says 6 years, but the pacer was done in Jan 80, That was why they made 2 80 AMC promo books. But YOU are correct, I was wrong. They should have kept building it till the end of AMC Sad, sorry to intrude Paul, back to the real story. SH

Yeah but just as with the 904 and 727, the Mopar stuff works better on AMC's. Wink
