Craziest Questions you've been asked about your SRT?

Just for fun, what are some of the craziest questions you have been asked about your SRT? Apparently around here you don't see too many of these b/c I have had so many people come up and talk to me about the Jeep at work, at the store, in the neighborhood, etc.

What are the red things behind the wheels?
Is it fast?

Re: Craziest Questions you've been asked about your SRT?

The most common one I get is "what is that" but have had people ask about where I got "part x/y/z" thinking it's not a stock vehicle.

Re: Craziest Questions you've been asked about your SRT?

A few months ago while I was installing my RIPP supercharger in my garage..I had the door up and the UPS driver dropping off a package said "is that one of those Nissans". I thought to myself...please get back in your big brown truck and get the hell out of here. He is obviously not a car guy. Lol

Re: Craziest Questions you've been asked about your SRT?

when I gave the jeep to smash repairs to pull everything off for me, when they dropped off to my factory they asked if I had bulletproof windows, cause the glass in the jeep is so thick... they also asked if I belonged to ISIS Pointing to the sensor under front bar. I just smiled... LoL

Re: Craziest Questions you've been asked about your SRT?

Pulled into my local Hod Rod Shop (GT HAUS half open) and the owner asked do you have a V10 under the hood?

Can we drive with valves xx% open? I thought had to be fully open or closed, I thought it may damage the valve itself??

Re: Craziest Questions you've been asked about your SRT?

Happened, not once, but twice. Each time I had my black suit on... Park it at a hotel, or on the street get out and people are just staring and said.

"Do you work for the CIA?"

My response - "that's classified"
