    I was out in the wagon this morning at the place my alarm was fitted and the following conversion occurred:

    Customer: What's that? A Lancer?
    Me: No, a Legnum
    Customer: A what?
    Me: It's a Galant wagon
    Alarm Fitter: Yeah it's a 2.5 twin turbo 4WD
    Customer: Faaaark <pause> it looks like a spaceship!

    :D

    Thought I'd start this thread to post the best quotes friends/family/public have made about your VR-4.

    I had to explain to my friends / family back in RSA what it was as well.

    My dad was like "Why on earth did you get an estate?"

    I responded: "Because it's cool!!!"

    The first comment I ever got was this:

    "Nice, that thing still on stock boost?"

    As I went through roadworks to get my blue slip done. I was gobsmacked as this dude knew exactly what it was straight away. I told the guy that it was stock as a rock and he was a champion for knowing what it was lol

    Well, I havent had (heard) comments as such, but had quite a few ppl walk past it when parked, then do a double take, circle the car 2 or 3 times, lots of shoulder shrugging and pointing, then take a pic w/ their fone and b4 leaving.

    Also, went down to Wello Pt (QLDers will know where that is) for brekky about 3 weeks ago, and had her parked where i could see. Just about finished my eggs benedict (with salmon) and an old dude who looked like santa drove past in a gleaming white mercedes. As he drove past my car though, he jammed on the brakes, grabbed reverse, then parked next to the VR4 and did laps for 5 minutes.

    I'd parked outside a Doctors office in Capalaba (QLD) and was waiting outside when a guy walks past and glances at the car then continues to walk away whilst looking at it. He then stops walks back and stares whilst scratching his head. Turns and looks at me and says "VR4. I've heard about them. Twin turbo aren't they".
    "Yeap" I say.
    "Boss ain't going to be happy about this."
    "Why"
    "I work for the service department at Mitsu in Cleveland"
    The guy walks off looking very worried. Me. I just laughed at the perplexed look on his face.

    I always get:
    "Whats it called again, a MAGNUM???"
    I just laugh, and put them straight.

    Mate: "Holy sh*t. Did you sell Seth to buy ANOTHER Magna? How much money did you spend modding it?" (looking at the interior in disbelief)
    Me: "It's not a Magna... last time I check they didn't have twin-turbo V6s. It's a Legnum. One of Mitsi's lil' secrets."
    Mate: "A what? Actually... why the f*ck is this thing in your driveway?"
    Me: "Haven't you heard of capitalism? You know, money for goods and services? Just jump in and we'll take it for a spin."

    [moments later after shocking an XR6 (non turbo) who gave it a good blast, he pulled up alongside at the next set of lights on Princes Hwy and motioned me to roll down the front passenger window]

    XR6: "Mate, what kind of car is that?"
    Mate: (cutting in) "I don't know either... but it sure kicked your arse!"

    Actually, "MAGNUM" has a good ring to it, don't you reckon? :D Good hybrid of "Legnum" and "Magna" AND it fits on a 6 char number plate.

    [edit] Ah crap. It's taken for Victoria. Just checked it out :)
