I still get plenty of questions, mostly at the shops, servo etc. Usually "how does it go", "do you like it", "my xxxxx (insert husband, dad, uncle son etc) used to have an old mini" etc.

I had a funny one a week ago when I was returning from Bathurst with Boo in the car. When we were stopped at the traffic lights a guy in the passenger seat of the car next to me motioned to wave the window down. He asked if the car had a BMW engine. I said yes, and he freaked out and his girlfriend started laughing. He had lost a $200 bet with his girlfriend over the origin of the engine. It was only a minute later that I thought about it, and realised that technically it is not a BMW engine, but a Chrysler block sourced from South America, but by then it was too late :rolleyes:
