I am on a quest to find "the" answer to a couple of questions I get all the time when someone sees my car, and I just never seem to have the right comeback.

1. Is it fast?

2. How fast will it go?

3. How fast have you had it?

I think these questions are along the same lines of "a guy is standing outside his car with a coat hanger in the window and someone walks up and says... did you lock your keys in the car... ANSWER: nope, just washed it and I'm hanging it up to dry"... those stupid here's your sign questions.

I know there are some creative, fast talking, quick witted people on this forum because there have been many times I have read through posts and just LMAO!! I am looking for anything and everything is fair game.

I just got the "Is it fast?" question again today... :scratchhead:

Thanks for the help

Chuck

1. Is it fast? Yes

2. How fast will it go? Faster than I want to safely

3. How fast have you had it? Triple digit

That's usually how I answer it.... although I do say it with a smile on my face. All answers are truthful. I've had it up to triple digits (on the track and once on the freeway). It is faster than I want to go safely on the open road and of course, yes, it is fast.

1. Is it fast?
It's faster than 99.99% of the cars on the road today, so I guess so.

2. How fast will it go?
The computer limits it to 143 mph.

3. How fast have you had it?
I just answered that.

These are my normal responses:

Faster than most, slower than a few.
Are you asking with or without the governor?
~140 on a closed track, up to 15 over posted highway speeds otherwise.

Not to my wallet :( :bncry:
Yeah, you're right.. a bit insensitive on my part


I haven't gotten 4 in six months, but I did get several over the course of 18 months, and even that was not real friendly on my wallet.

Still a good comment if'n you don't have to pay the piper.

When someone has asked me these types of questions in the past, I typically give them what they want, which is confirmation that these cars (My R/T) are not as fast as their buddies 5.0 or SS (whichever one their buddy drives). They never have a follow up question after my response. NO ONE is ever just curious, there is always a motive behind their adolecsent-minded question and that motive is - they are looking to put you in your place, last place! The more mature adults have never asked me that (Is she fast?) before.

1. Is it fast?
Compared to what? Considering the theoretical top speed of any infinite object is 186,000 feet per second its not all that fast but Dodge may have slowed it down some to make sure the headlights actually project rather than get sucked back into the wiring.

2. How fast will it go?

209 feet per second... give or take a foot or two.

3. How fast have you had it?
209 feet per second... give or take a foot or two.

Q: Is it fast?
A: oh hello, my names brother Josh, if you don't mind I'd like to take a minute and tell you about the book of mormon!

I've never seen anyone stick around after that line

Since their questions are inquisitive, why not play with them for just a little bit?

1. Is it fast? Oh yeah.

2. How fast will it go? As fast as I want it to.

3. How fast have you had it? Into tomorrow. ;)
