I would pull out of a gas station or turn at an intersection and would catch people rev their engines at me. My question is what does it mean?? Is there any point in reving their engines? I mean we are both going seperate ways.

1.) most likely to show-off (i.e. trying to compensate for errr... something)
2.) to waste gas...(as if gas wasn't already expensive)

The only time I ever have was when I'm joking around with friends. Like the other night I was pulling out of my friends driveway and she goes and sits on the hood of my car so I just redlined it once just to scare her, but doing it on the main roads... or to total strangers just confuzzles me....why? why!?

Thats exactly what I tell my girl friend. She asked me the same stuff I asked you guys. It just confuses me why they would do that.

for me it depends on the person and how they rev their car. Most people i know here do it as a greeting or hello. Its basically saying (whats up i noticed youve tuned your car in some from of fashion and im giving respect to you, the sport and the tuner communtiy by revving my engine. ) (better than beeping your horn or screaming out the window WASSSUPPPP!!!! lol IMO its kinda a cool an laid back way of saying whats up to a fellow enthusiast. I know when i drive down the road and i see an enthusiast, i give my engine a quick and light 2 revs to say wats up, but then again i see some guys do it to be a jackass.

The people who rev their motors just look soooo damn serious. There's always a grin on their face. The WRX guys are major jack asses. Some are cool, but some are just big asses. I like the Toyota guys. Their cool especially the mr2 turbo folks.

Well at first I thought it was a way to say whats up like Dujuru stated. Then I thought about it and maybe they are just being asses.

I think most of the times it's too be an azz. It's kind of a 'look how tough I am' kind of thing. Unless you know the person. When I pass my friends, they rev their engines instead of honking.

funny you guys talk about this...ever since i got my celica (almost a month) and its kinda "hooked up" if you will, everyone revs at me, red lights, highway, streets, etc..
rather annoying, im not one for racing....its just a waste of gas.

but anyways the funny thing is, you guys mentioned this today...why today...well i was at a red light downtown and there was a dodge srt10 viper next to me...he musta rev'd his engine 5-6 times...like i was gonna challenge him and have a chance or something...****in 40 yr old guy by himself bought a viper because he has no self esteem so he drives around and revs it at people in celicas....what a homo!! :puke:

so far i've had quite a few experiences with this...the viper, an srt4 with a big ass intercooler and loud as **** turbo pulled up when the light was green in his lane and he stopped....rev'd then peeled out. tiburons, civics, cobalts, cavaliers, and cant forget....my favorite....ive had like 4-5 5.0 mustangs.

Nothing against any Mustang owners on these boards....but 90% of these mustang owners...more less 5.0 owners....are :gay: and think they are the **** cause they got some fast loud ass car that looks like a piece of **** (for the most part).

I agree.

I rev at other celicas to say hello. The other day I saw a fine young lady in a white celica and when I got next to her at the light I reved and she looked over at first her facial expression was like "what kinda asshol..." but when she saw me and that it was a celica thing she smiled and waved. ...'hottt'
I like the way my engine sounds, sometimes I rev at myself.

Adalos, if pinks is gay. My question is do you like the pink starburst?
