You know you're a hot rodder if...

You know you're a hot rodder if...

1) You spend more time in your garage than with your wife/family
2) You've sat on your garage floor making engine sounds with a plate in your hand as steering wheel and a fork as shifter. (I know I've done it........too many times)
3) You're wildest dreams are about that perfect hot rod with that perfect engine and color:
4) If you're talking about your "babe" it's always gonna be your car.
5) You get stressed out and nervous attacks if the newest edition of some hotrodder magazine didnt arrive in the mail yet.
6) You're a member of hotrodders.com

...the beginning intro to the Van Halen song "Hot for Teacher", sounds to you just like a hot cammed V8.

I am a Hot Rodder, my name is Tazz!

I have Auto Zone and Murray's both on my speed dial?? My wife cralls under the car to talk with me, I can't hear her otherwise and its a good excuse for her to pass tools! My garage is FULL of parts and tools with a little room for 3 cars....LOL

You talk to your car.

You listen when your car talks back.

During a conversation, you tend to listen to your car more closely than you do your significant other.

You have a Car Fund piggy bank (HemmieGremmie
)

The sound of a V8 running open headers give your loins a tingle.

My uncle did that with his car after he put the cam in it I walked up and asked him what he was doing kneeled down behind his car as it ran. He doesn't huff so I knew that wasn't it he just held his hand up to me to be quiet and said "Shhhh... it talking to me... listen..." The idle changed a bit and got just a little rough and he said "There! Ya hear it? Its talkin.."
