  • Comments heard whilst in the 7

    A few years back I stopped to get gas in the 7. An older (than me) woman seated by the station door in a plastic chair began laughing at the little toy jalopy even before the car stopped. Clearly it was one of the funnier cars she seen at the station that day. I then removed the steering wheel and handed it to my bride to facilitate my exit from the 7. We heard the woman say to a man that had come out to get a laugh too, "Look, the steering wheel just fell off". That was the best moment, for her.

    On a few occasions I've been asked, "So is the VW motor in the back"?

    Or, after hearing the exhaust rumble, "What V8 is in there"?

    Anyone got some others worth sharing?

    ...besides the usual "what is it?"...
    1- Does that thing go fast enough to get on the highway? :lol:
    2- From a passenger after a few blasts on the expressway: can we take the city streets back? He claimed he couldn't breath :)

    Nobody has asked me if it's got a hemi

      And the unusually brilliant, "What do you feed the squirrels?"

      Or, "Is it twin rubberbands?"

        It's so cute.

        Sure is small.

        Not very practical.

          I've heard a number of amusing comments, but my favorite was made during our visit to the Grand Canyon on the USA2005 tour. A small group of us had parked up top at the lodge and were sitting near the cars relaxing, when someone walked up to our little convoy and said to his friends “ Those have to be owned by old, rich people who have too much time on their hands.â€‌ Nice…

            I once had a guy drive almost 2 hours out of his way following me just to finally pull in behind me in my driveway and then was totally speechless; he just bathered a few sentences about following me and then got back in his car and drove away.

              my mother, in her only ride in the 7, didn't want any more of up oce i passed 45. she cited lack of breath as well.

              my friends have called it a roller coaster ride (super bike rider), sky diving on wheels (HPDE fiend), and road rape. probably many others that i just filter out.

                Comments heard whilst in the 7

                I have never heard a comment whilst in the 7. ... All I could ever hear is the lovely tone of glorious exhaust! ... I really mean it! ... My Busa is honking loud!
                Notwithstanding, while I was building the "7" I have had several people come up to tell me that they love antique cars and asked me what year my car was made.
                I always answered the question retorically by asking them "what year is it" (right now)?

                While it may very well be true that money can not buy happiness, it is reassuring to note that it can still rent a hell of a good time!
