  • how many haha's?

    Random question lol but does anyone ever get laughed at/made fun of for driving a miata? We all know that Miata drivers are either gay or women(though every woman Miata driver I've met and talked to could drive pretty good) I'm sure there are many funny stories related to this so lets hear them. The second day I had my car I pulled up next to a Cherokee with one guy and three girls and I was taking my friend for a ride and one girl looked over and started laughing at me...all I could do is bust out laughing. And I love it when truck drivers are all like, "mmmm...my big manly v8 staright pipe truck" yet our little Miata's will stilll beat them and then a corner comes up. Honestly Miata drivers buy Miata's because they want one to enjoy and it has nothing to do with image, showing a strong self esteem lol. Just thowin this idea out there.

    RE: how many haha's?

    I used to take some crap for it. I have a lot of friends that are into muscle cars. They'd call it a fag/chick/etc. car. I'd usually respond with "I'm not trying to compensate for anything".

    But most of those people had never driven one. My brother in law, for instance, a die hard Corvette fan and V8 fan, used to absolutely give me hell about it. Then I talked him into taking it for a drive. He's literally looking for a cheap NA now to keep from having to drive the Cummins to work every day.

    I don't understand, though, why we get so much more crap than, say, guys that drive Civic hatches. Never figured that one out. :rolleyes:

      Yeah... modding a car that was meant for grocery getting IS gay...

      I've never really had any 'serious' comments.... sometimes my friends will **** with me and use the gay comments.

        I've never had anyone say anything. But then again, I kinda fit the stereotype..

          I got one joke when I first bought the car, and nothing since then. I think the headlights and the car's general stance and "don't **** with me" attitude, plus the SCCA sticker in the rear window, definitely help.

            I had a complete stranger in a lifted pickup truck with a confederate flag sticker yell in a parking lot to me "get a real car". I just laughed.

              And quite the opposite for me, when i had my 99 all vinyled up all 787B style, i hactually had a LOT of people compliment the car...including some of those "lifted truck" crowd. But the best was little kids... it was a sure thing that if there were any kinds within 50fy they would point and yell "race car!! look!!" lol

                I've had a few rednecks in trucks shout stuff, I normally shout back with vile English-English language and leave them speechless. Quite a few girls joke about the car but you know they all love it.

                  People in lifted trucks always rub off to me as being an a-hole. I know that's bad but almost every "big truck" driver I've met has the mentality that they have the biggest d*** to walk this planet.

                    It seems to never fail, the bigger the truck, the smaller the guy that is driving it. I always laugh when a big ole truck pulls in a little bitty dude "falls" out of it.

                      I must admit, I find it fascinating how some people attribute the size of a car to their manliness levels.

                        And it will always be that way to some people. I don't take any comments about my car personal. If they don't like it, I could give two ****s. I don't buy the car or a certain part to impress others.

                          Couldn't agree more, the same goes for when people mod their cars. I may not like it, but fair enough, it's your car and you can do what you want to it. Just don't go expecting others to appreciate the same way as you, and don't get a sore arse when someone tells you their opinion.

                              Exactly but I have to admit, I will laugh time to time when I see a mod that I feel should not be on that particular car but at the end of the day, it's his car, not mine. If it makes him happy, that's all that matters. I think people lose sight of this sometimes.
