Random Guy at Gas Station: "I saw your car filling up that's a sky-on right?"
Me: Yeah, it's a Scion FR-S.
Random Guy at Gas Station: "Sweet ride bro. Your car is on ice!"

I had a fellow twin owner flash their lights and wave as I passed by them. They live 2 houses over. Haven't talked with them yet, but they wave when I pass.

Today a guy stopped me at the gas station and asked about the Cosworth plaque on my car. He seemed pretty interested in my supercharger. Then he mentioned he owns a BRZ in town. So that was nice.

Cruising the parking lot tonight to find a decent spot, and I ride by a family with a child. As I rode by, I heard the kid say "That's a racecar!" I'm running sport lines with the Dezod Catback exhaust

LOL!

Just sharing the moment with my little brother, who was actually more enthusiastic than I was.

I promise I'm much more calm, ask Ultra. :P

Well at least the dude didn't walk into something like I have seen about 5 times now ( trash can, 2 sign posts, a tree and a parked car). And if I have been in the car and actually saw them do it that many times I have to wonder how often it actually happens.

Think it was the very first day I bought car, took it for a cruise around the beach. Guy was riding his bike, looked to his left and just kept staring my way.

If he didn't look straight 2 seconds earlier, he would've smacked into a light pole.

There was also this guy who stopped right in the middle of must-turn intersection just to stare at the car. Seriously, he stopped rush hour traffic just to look at it...

Had two incidents recently

First one: Stuck in traffic trying to get through the hudson tunnel from the NYC side. Some massive white commercial van merging starts honking at me and merges in front of me. My first thought was, "really, wtf you honking at me for, I'm letting you in, just stfu and move." Then the passenger side window rolls down and the dude sticks his head out, giving me a thumbs up and doing the motorcycle handle revving motion. So I gave a few revs up at 7k RPM. That was a good mood lifter while stuck in traffic hah.


Second time: On the BQE heading to the LIE, was near Flushing at this point. Car next to me keeps honking. Again, first instinct was to get pissed and be ready to flip someone off. But I look over and the guy has a massive grin, is giving me a thumbs up, and mouthing that he loves my car. So I give a few revs and he does a small 1ft burnout in reply.

Price is a bit steep but comes with lots of accessories and support on the forum is awesome. I got it for the very good night recordings, which is when I do most of my driving.

One of the girls at Dutch Bros Coffee asked me 1) if the car was mine, 2) if it was expensive, and 3) if it was fast.

I said yes, no, and no :P
