Tongue Laminge's life story...

You know when you own a Street Machine when:

The emissions test guys start laughing as soon as you pull into the bay

You can't drive your car in the rain

Your missus is afraid to drive your car
You are afraid to drive your car

You spend more on tyres than on food

Your council decides not to re-pave your street with that new rubberised asphalt becuase you've already "done such a good job of it"

You spend more on your car insurance than house payments

Your insurance company has to create a whole new acturial table to cover your and your vehicle

You have never argued with your wife over making the mortgage payment or buying that new set of headers while they're still on sale

You see a picture of your car taped to the bulletin board at your local police station

Your local council has passed an ordinance making it illegal for you to even enter a school zone unless you are on foot

Traffic advisories are issued whenever your car is spotted during peak hour

Your mechanic names the new wing of his shop after you

You have speed shops on your telephone speed-dial

You're tempted to wear your fire suit just to drive to work

You refer to the intersection at the end of your street as Turn 1

You get pulled over for doing 120 in a 60 but the cops will let you go if they can look under the bonnet

News footage of cops chasing you is used as a training video for the highway patrol

Your face looks like you are riding a NASA centrifuge when you drive the car

You need parachute braking

There is no possible way to "sneak-out" of your neighbourhood at 6am

Your pets scramble for their hiding spots as soon as the garage door is opened

You wear earplugs in your cars

You find out that stock side mirros don't hold up at speeds exceeding 240km/h

Your exhuast pipes are a larger diameter than your driveline

Your fuel pump can be used to water a golf course

Your engine idles at 2800RPM

You don't know 20L/100km is appalling fuel economy; in fact, you aspire to it

The local airport complains about the noise coming from your garage on Saturdays

The fire brigade has showed up at your house becuase alarmed neighbours reported smoke billowing from your garage

You believe ABS and traction control only take the fun out of driving

Re: Laminge's life story...

My responses to this list!

The emissions test guys start laughing as soon as you pull into the bay

Been there done that

You can't drive your car in the rain

Drag Radials do not hook in the rain....speaking from experience.

Your missus is afraid to drive your car

That is a given

You are afraid to drive your car

Never!

You spend more on tyres than on food

I am on my second set of F1's And I have just over 1k on the odometer.

Your council decides not to re-pave your street with that new rubberised asphalt becuase you've already "done such a good job of it"

City council loves me. I save money for them!


You spend more on your car insurance than house payments

Yep

Your insurance company has to create a whole new acturial table to cover your and your vehicle

Insurance agent just bought a new Mercedes thank to my renewal

You have never argued with your wife over making the mortgage payment or buying that new set of headers while they're still on sale

Lethy Encourages it!

You see a picture of your car taped to the bulletin board at your local police station

That is what Lawyers are for.

Your local council has passed an ordinance making it illegal for you to even enter a school zone unless you are on foot


If it has not been passed it should!

Traffic advisories are issued whenever your car is spotted during peak hour

Peak hours are 11pm - 2am Great Racing time!

Your mechanic names the new wing of his shop after you

Not for me yet

You have speed shops on your telephone speed-dial

On the telephone and Mobile. As well as single key strokes to enter their names into the email TO: field.

You're tempted to wear your fire suit just to drive to work


I would but not in the Summer!

You refer to the intersection at the end of your street as Turn 1

Actually this is true. And the one 2 blocks later is the power slide L turn

You get pulled over for doing 120 in a 60 but the cops will let you go if they can look under the bonnet


Happened 3 times so far! last one wanted to look, but still wrote me a ticket.

News footage of cops chasing you is used as a training video for the highway patrol

Not me, but my friends Impala made 90 minutes of police chase when it was stolen 18 months ago.

Your face looks like you are riding a NASA centrifuge when you drive the car

It did at my BDay party too!

You need parachute braking

Would be helpful!

There is no possible way to "sneak-out" of your neighbourhood at 6am

Aye. ANd every car alarm for 2 blocks is going off.

You find out that stock side mirros don't hold up at speeds exceeding 240km/h

Mine still do.


Your exhuast pipes are a larger diameter than your driveline

NOPE. I need the Backpressure.

You don't know 20L/100km is appalling fuel economy; in fact, you aspire to it

Almost getting that now!

You believe ABS and traction control only take the fun out of driving

they do!
