    Me too!! I hate going shopping, whenever I go I always walk in knowing exactly what I want and right where it is so I can get in and out. But swap meets and car shows are different. I just browse and take my time. Yep, I’m officially car crazy!

    This is when you truly know you are a gearhead and proud to say so.

    A couple of months ago at work our HR director found a bag of marijuana on the shop floor and there was a meeting amongst the shop guys to address the situation. Later in the day one of the guys joked with me and asked if the drugs were mine. This was my response,

    “First off I don’t know what the stuff looks like and second, if I had the money to buy the stuff I wouldn’t. I would use the money to buy aftermarket car parts!”

    That my friends, is true acknowledgement and a badge to wear to the world that you are a gearhead. Drogar-BigGrin(LBG).gif

    Smart man, you have the right idea.

    I know I am a gearhead when I spend all morning at work thinking up excuses to take off early, go home and take one of the cars out for a drive. And I have done that quite a few times. There can be nothing more relaxing than taking a drive on a nice afternoon.

    And I know I’m a gearhead when all day all I can think about is wiscollectorcar.com and getting on the forum. wave.gif
