Is it for sale?

One thing I can not stand about owning a 240 is that you have people always asking you if your car is for sale. They don't even know what the hell it is.. yet they still ask. Good example..

I pulled into the gas station to fill up this afternoon. Some older guy, around 45, was staring at the car as I got out. I started to pay for the gas and he was like, "nice car". I told him thanks. He kept staring at the car as if it were some $100,000 car. The car is dirty, it needed a wash bad.. so it couldn't have looked THAT good.

Finally, he asked me if the car was for sale. I turned around to my window and was like, "nope. Doesn't look like it." He told me he was looking for a little used car for $3,000. I was insulted. I told him that it was a '96 that just hit 104,000 miles and I wouldn't sell it for $3,000. I told him it was more like $10,000. He told me it wasn't worth it. Duh. It's not for sale, idiot! Then, finally.. he goes to me, "so, what kind of car is this?!" Ok, don't ask if you can buy a car at a gas station for gods sake, if you don't know what the hell it is.

Owning a miata you don't get remarks like this, instead people say "Wow thats such a small car, what kind is it?" and "How can you drive such a small car?"

Yeah, because you know they won't have the cash on them. I always tell people they need to give me cash if they want it that bad.

Didn't you know? Civics are the only true sports cars in the sport compact world.

BOO YA!!! DING! DING! DING! Correct Answer!!! I'd immediately spend a few grand on a road trip to the opposite coast though.
