We've all gotten these quotable gems. Tell us yours.

Mine: Had a friend who when he first saw my truck said, "Jim, that truck gives me a hard on just looking at it."

Runner-up: Little old lady in WalMart parking lot: "My, that's a pretty color. Does it get good gas mileage?"

Back right after I bought my truck, I was at a light when a guy in a ranger told me he liked my Lightning clone. I told it wasn't a clone but he insisted it was a clone because the Lightning wasn't available in dark blue. Little did he know my truck was a factory 02 True Blue Lightning.

"There's something wrong with your alternator"

I'll never forget that one, since it was from some ricer kid, who thought he knew everything under the sun about every single car/truck.

Don't own a lightning unfortunately, but I did have two guys stop and ask me how hard it was to put the cummins in.... Head gaskets were bad and a combination of white and black smoke mixed with the horrible engine sound on 5 cyl. must have gave them the idea? I just told them it was easy once you took the gas tank out.

Guard at age to Tinker AFB, one day on the way into work: "I'll give you $20,000 for that right now". I said "no thanks, that's what I paid for it."

Older black woman, not long after I put the cogs on: "that things sounds mean, sounds like a jet engine spooling up." I was surprised she knew what "jet engine spooling up" meant. ;)

OP: I still like that hood the best of all of them. I just can't get up the gumption to buy one. Fiberglas hoods are well known for having fitment issues. Don't want to deal with them.

Best comment was at a show a while back, I had just parked, tipped open the Speedstur, got my chairs, detail bucket out, set up the showboard and people were admiring the ghost flames on the hood... I opened it and one of the guys just said "Holy Shit" real slow. Made my day.

I had just bought my L and pulled out of the sellers driveway and 30 seconds down the street into a 76 station to fill up and some guy says "Wow that thing sounds fast, nice truck". And one more "Bad ass bro" and a thumbs up in the parking lot of Marie Callender's after we stopped for lunch. So I was feeling pretty good about my purchase after getting a couple of compliments before even getting the truck home. :smt003
