HAD owners Unite!

Anyone who's been on the forums for any length of time will know of the long standing and sometimes "humorous" ribbing that exists between the owners of 6 cylinder cars and 8 cylinder cars.

For a long time the 8 cylinder boys have amused themselves with cute little acronyms like HAD and TQE to describe the 6 cylinder powerplants that they look down upon.

With the launch of the BA & the invention of the XR6T the jibes have only increased; the insecurity of V8 owners swelling as they suddenly realised that a 6T would match or better them straight out of the box.


So now I say we 6 cylinder owners should press the advantage and take it to the next level with some new acronyms of our own. If you've been called a HAD owner once to often, or if TQE is getting on your nerves, throw it right back at them with a big TCTM!


And what, I hear you ask, does TCTM stand for;

Two
Cylinders
Too
Many




And what brought this on you may ask?

Let's just say some V8 prejudiced members should not be allowed near a keyboard after a certain number of drinks and this is my response to their baiting.

Re: HAD owners Unite!

I'd love to join but I want another V8! Then again, considering my HAD puts out more stock KW than most E series V8's I am not really worried about the jibes!

Re: HAD owners Unite!

You've misunderstood Casper - it's not ANOTHER society (we have so many of them already that it's starting to get confusing) - this is just an acronym to use in general conversation.

If you have any others you know, please feel free to contribute.

Re: HAD owners Unite!

cool, I'll use it in conversation for sure!!! TCTM is pretty funny!
But, does this mean the HAM's can use it on us HAD's too?

You think us HAD's have it bad, I feel for the HAM's!
