Reminds me of one my favorites:

A lot of great replies! And a lot of truth,(and humor) and unlike some other forums I'm on (all having to do with some sort of vehicle,RVs,Trucks,ect.) I didn't hear one, way out there in "left" field wacko remark that we were all wrong,must be cause all of us car guys think a lot alike,(we are all about haif nuts to begin with!) Great Thread!

I've heard people, including myself, say "I really screwed up this time and probably shouldn't have done that" - - - BUT, I think the saddest thing that a Man can say is "I sure wished I'd done ______ "(you fill in the blanks)

That's a good one Jay. I have a small book at home that I have been writing quotes of my families in for a few years. Ones of my fathers (the G rated ones) "Colder than a Mother-in-laws love" or "Raining like a cow peeing on a pole bridge". And ones of my families like the one from my little daughter about 9 years old when we hiked up a nearby peak into the clouds and I told her this was a cloud we were in. She said "I thought it would be all fluffy".

One of mine is "Nothing sells cars like a giant inflatable gorilla in a Bermuda shorts".
