    Weve all had it...

    when someone comes up and asks if the 200 is a skyline?

    i was the kwik fit the other weekend getting some tyres fitted on the 200 when a guy comes out the office, walks around my car and says "is that a soarer" i said "no its a 200sx" too which the kwik fit monkey replies "oh, im not very good with these hondas" he then gives it another confused look before going back into the office and sitting down again.

    i just get "what is it?"

    Also still get lots of numbties trying it on in euroboxes, there's a seat leon that seems permanently sat on my rear bumper until i give the loud pedal some abuse.

    I like the anonimity.

    im hopeing that the guy in kwik fit was trying too wind me up but he did genuinely look confused.

    alot more people are starting too recognise the car now though, i still hear more people call it a skyline than a 200sx but there are some educated people around.

    was driving along the high street near my work and heard a guy say, I love those cars. Lovely skyline.

    If you love the car, you'd know what it was hahahahaha
