In Ralph's Idiot Light thread Rich Eagle posted a humorous self portrait which inspired Carl Klem to suggest a special thread. Being a shameless ham, I'll start.

Bob, how often do people ask you the year and make of your car?

I just groaned more on this thread than most of the reaaaaaly long boring ones. I love it though. Will have to work on a "Jelfy" of my own.

You'd be surprised how many people don't notice the license plate, Steve. In fact, the question I'm most often asked is, "What year is that?".
The oddest question came from a lady who, with a perfectly straight face, asked, "Is that a Rolls Royce?"
Then there was the guy who asked me whether the radiator was solid gold or just plated.

Other oft-asked questions are:

"How fast can it go?"
"I don't know."

"Did you buy it new?"
"Yes, I'm the original owner."

"Guess parts are hard to find, huh?"
"I can pick up the phone, order any part I need and have it delivered to my doorstep the next day."

"That's a replica, right?"
"A replica would be more expensive to buy than an original."

"Guess they're very rare, huh?"
"There are four that I know of, right here in this neighborhood."

"When was the last one built?"
"December of 2001."

"Where do you get tires for a car like that?"
"Vietnam."

And my favorite answer to my least favorite question is, "If I didn't tell my wife how much I paid for it, I'm certainly not going to tell you!"

If you eat them with the right amount of juice they go "Snap Crackle and Pop."

Now that is a GREAT Selfie Jay. And with a DU4.

Good lookin' Goggles Bob. You definitely need a Speedster.

Steve's rumble seat idea isn't as out of place as it may seem - here's a 1917 British ad reproduced in the new book about Model T's in England; http://www.modeltbook.co.uk/index.html

Still looks a bit dangerous in curves.. :-)
