We all drive slightly unusual cars so people usually mistake them for something else, and are then silly enough to say it.
People always think the 505 is a Holden or a BMW, I never noticed that kidney grill on it.
I've had full on arguments with people about what my 403 is "it must be a Holden, it has a lion on it" "It's a Peugeot" "your wrong" "wow, I never knew MY car was actually a Holden, thanks for that" "well they must copied Holden with the lion then" "no, Peugeot has had the Lion since the 1800s" "bullshit, Peugeot weren't around then" Some people just wont admit they're wrong, I've had that argument so many times!
The 403 has also been called an Austin, a Morris, a Citroen (!?!?) and a Ford.
I'm interested to see what the Citroen guys say. Here's a quote from another forum.
Driving a CitroŽn CX in the USA: "Izzat a Honda Insight??"
"Um, no. It's got FOUR doors, is about a block longer, an...., aww, f_ck it, it's really the 2006 Corvette prototype..."
Driving a Cit 2CV in the USA: "Nice Bug". "Yes, it is, I like the four doors and front wheel drive..."
