You stretch the truth on the price of parts for your car to your significant other.

If you have more cars that don't run than ones that do.

if you are proud of the grease stains on your clothes.

if you work on your car at night, in the dark.

if you make more friends at the junkyard than at a party.

if people trust you with their car more than some ASE cert mechanic.

if you have a space in the barn just for extra car parts for cars you have sold already.


That just about sums me up.

If you have 8 old not running not complete V8 engines on your workbench that you just couldnt let sit on the field and got a good deal on them, and you tell your complaining significant other that "someday" you will rebuild them.

You know you're a hotrodder if your wife beats you with a belt and you demand the belt to be a water pump belt from Jegs.

Okay folks, in honor of Beenaway's request, let's all pause and appreciate our significant others who sometimes fall victim to our 'true love', and yet they still understand enough to stick around for the first time we get to go cruise in it.

Now where was I . . . .

You know more about your car than the computer that the AutoZone guy uses to find your part.

"Work it harder, make it better, do it faster, makes us stronger. More than ever, hour after hour, work is never over." ~Daft Punk~ . . . .applies to you.

.....if you read this post and with enthusiasm post replies
.....if you cry tears of hapiness each time you rev up your V8
.....if you celebrate your cars birthday
.....if your grandma is scared of the the loud engine in your car and even though the car reminds her of when she was younger she'd rather walk then get a ride with you.
.....if all your family pictures are taken seatin in your car or standing in your garage blending in with the grinders, the welder, and accentuating the wrenches hangin on the wall
....if you read all replies and think "man, that so describes me"

you know your a hot rodder when:

You take your dates on romantic walks in the junk yard.
The guys at the junk yard know you better than your family does.
The smell of tire smoke makes you get hyper.
You eyeball every car closely that has a rumbling idle, even if it means ignoring every word your better half is saying.
If your better half or g/f says "you love your car more than you do me!" and you go "You`re right!"
When you call in sick to work so you can work on your car even if you are sick.
When you and a friend constantly race each other and spend tons of money trying to outrun each other.
You`ve met all your girl friends at the junk yard, cause they likely worked there as a secretary.
When your prouder of your car for outrunning the neighborhood big dog than you are of your kid`s straight A report card.
You read your kids bed time story out of a hot rod magazine.
During your break at work you work on your car.
The guys at the machine shop send you birthday and Xmas gifts.

I have honestly scared the neighbor kids when they have walked past the garage and saw me in there with a welding helmet on or a paint respirator...LOL!
...most people run away from your car when you fire it up to take a spin
...most guys run to your car like a kid runs towards the ice cream truck
...You have flames painted on your mailbox
...You have had pizza delivered to the garage(I'm guilty of this!)
...Your wife has to visit you in the garage(me again)
...You end up dirtier than what ever you are working on(me again)
....You buy another washing machine just for "garage clothes" and shop towels(Guilty again!)

Later,
WEIMER

You remove the KY jelly form the bedroom to the garage so because you need something that won't damage rubber parts.

Your car has so much polish that flying insects skid off the paint when they try to land.

Your kids think exhaust fumes is a brand of aftershave you wear.

You keep buying the same parts from the salvage yard because the one you just bought is a little better looking than the one thats on the car.

Parts that you can't ever see are chrome or stainless.

You move your stove into the garage to build a powder coating rig



Regards
Mark
