Thread: NOBLE. My experience with the public, thus far.

  1. #1

    Default NOBLE. My experience with the public, thus far.

    NOBLE = No One Bothers Looking at the Emblems.

    I'm sure you all are aware -- but the "What is that?" question that is asked every, single, time.
    I think one owner who has "GOOGLIT" as their plate has the best response.

    /passing thought.

    Well, at least “NOBLE” is a word people can understand. It’s even worse with Rossion!
    “What is that?”
    ”Rossion”
    ”What? Ruffion?”
    ”Ummm... YES!” Because no matter how long you try to explain, the next answer is...
    ”Hmmm... never heard of that...”

    The best question about the car I got was a dude yelling across the street:
    ”What kind of Lambo is that?”

    In the early days, whenever I "showed" my M12 at local events I always had a number of FAQ 1-pagers to hand out, which definitely helped with voice fatigue. (Still had to deal with frequent inquiries at gas stops, though .)

    You never know who's going to know that your car is a Noble. I parked in front of my credit union and a suit hurried out of the "No public entry" door and said "Is that a Noble?!?!" He knew about it from Top Gear but had never seen one in person. We had a great chat about the car.

    The well known exotics have their haters, but in 8-ish years of driving my Noble I've had only positive reactions.
