LMAO...little kids and the Celica

hehehehe...I swear, at least once a day as I'm driving around, a little kid will stop their parent point at my car and either say WOW! or MOMMY look at the racecar!...hehehehehehehe...or minivans...in rush hour traffic after work...or even on weekends on the interstate...kids always point at my car, and go nuts!...do you guys ever get the same thing?? I know I'm not the only one...I think one thing that might do it for me is that the kids like my graphics...

one time my girlfriend and I were coming out of a restaurant, and this little kid was getting out of the car next to me, and asked his dad "is that car fast"
to which I walked up and said, "it sure is"...he looked and said "how do you know??" to which I replied smiling "because I drive it"...then I hit the unlock button on the keyless entry...hahahahahahahaha

I get all kinds of eyes and fingers pointing at me from kids. Once my brother was driving my car and he said some lil kid was playing with his friends and he was like "AHHHHHH COOL LOOK AT THAT CAR" I've even had "grandpa" while i was eating at wendy's. I reminded me of the celica commercial where the old guy says SLOW DOWN but this time he was like in amazement he just zoned out on my car for a while.

having comments like that renew your first feelings about the celica. the feelings that made you buy it in the first place.

whether in stock form or kitted, its still super sexy, like silver thumbsup rofl tongue

haha I went to visit my old cross country team over thanksgiving at the highschool and when I pulled up there was a gang of middleschoolers going crazy over the car, wanting rides and it seemed that all of them wanted to know if I had "Nos" Next question is are you rich? and all I tell them is, if you want a car like this then join the military haha!

I've had one "Mommy! Mommy! Is that a race car??" as I drove by the gas station (pulling to the stoplight). Couldn't help but smile, though I didn't hear his mom's response tongue

And that's even completely bone stock!

Hell, it still looks bone stock... Aside from the AEM stickers in the rear-side windows tongue


But it makes ya feel all warm and fuzzy smile
