Be careful what you wear (or don't wear), when working under your vehicle...especially in public.
From the Sydney Morning Herald, Australia, comes this story of a central west couple who drove their car to their car break down in the parking lot. The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the there in the lot. The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection, she saw a pair of male legs protruding from under the chassis.
Although the man was in shorts, his lack of underwear turned private parts into glaringly public ones.
Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand UP his shorts and tucked everything back into place. On regaining her feet, she looked across the hood and found herself staring at her husband who was standing idly by.
The mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his head.

A young gal was bored with driving her BMW.
It lacked individuality and besides that, every other girl in the
office had one. She fancied something a bit more individual, perhaps
an MG convertible.
That week she visited her local car dealer and spied a beautiful
Jaguar XK140 convertible ("WD-40 Ragtop"). It was wonderfully restored and she fell in love with it's gorgeous red paint work. An empty check stub later and off she was tearing down the leafy country lanes enjoying her beautiful new car. Her long blonde hair was flowing in the wind,
music blaring from the radio, what could possibly go wrong?
Then at that thought there was a splutter from the engine and the
car slowly coasted to a stop. She got out and lifted the bonnet and
concluded after a few minutes that she didn't have a bloody clue what
was wrong. Luckily she had her mobile phone with her and a quick
phone call to the AutoClub and a short wait saw a bright shiny yellow
van pull up behind her.
"That's a lovely car," says the mechanic. "What seems to be the
matter?"
Well, it just conked out I'm afraid."
"Let me have look." He set to work and ten minutes later the engine
was purring like a cat again.
"Thank goodness," she said. "What was the matter ?"
"Simple really, just crap in the carburettor," he replied.
Looking shocked she asked, "Oh, OK. How many times a week do I have
to do that?"

A woman answered the knock at her door and found a destitute man.
He wanted to earn money by doing odd jobs, so she asked, "Can you
paint?"
"Yes," he said, "I'm a pretty good painter."
"Well, there's a gallon of green paint and a brush out back, and
a porch that needs repainting. Be very careful. When you're done,
I'll look it over and pay you what it's worth."
It wasn't more than an hour before he knocked again. "All finished!",
he reported with a smile.
"Did you do a good job?" she asked.
"Yes, but lady, there's one thing I'd like to point out to you," he
said, "That's not a Porsche back there -- it's a Mercedes!"


You know its time to change your car when.....
1. You spend more on oil than on petrol
2. Your car leaves three types of liquid in your parking space
3. You offer a friend a lift and they say no because they are
in a hurry
4. You feel good if you beat a cyclist at the lights
5. You get invited to join a car restoration club
6. Your neighbours all chip in to buy you a car cover
7. Your car leaves more smoke than a David Copperfield show.
8. Somebody breaks in and fits a radio
9. Hitch hikers hide when they see you coming
10. And Finally, you know its time to change that car when some
old duffer tells you that they are the best car ever made.

TOP 10: LAWS OF AUTO RACING

10) The number of times you get hit in a pileup is directly proportional to the number of times you said "I think it will go ok today".
9) You only get the lead when you need fuel.
8) If a tire can go on the wrong side, it will.
7) A part will never break during a test session, only during a race.
6) The driver behind you is always the one you punted last week.
5) The part you left at the shop is the one you need.
4) The number of laps remaining is always one more than the amount of fuel left in the car.
3) Your good car will get wrecked, your bad car will finish the race, two laps down.
2) The concrete wall is harder at the tracks you wreck at.
1) A 10-car pileup will never happen *behind* you!

11. You volunteered for a "safe" job at the speedway driving the track drier.



Mother Superior: "Welcome to the Convent of Silence, Sister Mary Katherine. You are welcome to stay here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct yo to do so."

Five years pass.

Mother Superior: "You have remained silent for five years. You may speak two words."

Sister Mary Katherine: "Hard bed."

Mother Superior: "I'm sorry to hear that. We will get you a better bed."

Five more years pass.

Mother Superior: "You may say another two words, Sister Mary Katherine."

Sister Mary Katherine: "Cold food."

Mother Superior: "I am quite sorry. We will instruct the cook to ensure your food is warmer in the future."

Five years later. . .

Mother Superior: "You may say two words only today."

Sister Mary Katherine: "I quit."

Mother Superior: "It's probably for the best. You've done nothing but bitch since you got here."

You Might be a Racer if…. pt1

You think the primary purpose of wings is to PREVENT flight.

You take your helmet along when you buy new eyeglasses or check out cars.

You feel compelled, on a road trip, to beat your previous best time.

You are happiest when your street car’s tires are worn to racing depth, and the wear bars are showing.

When something falls off your car, you wonder how much weight you just saved.

When you hear “over-cooked”, instead of food, you think “off the track”.

You change your engine oil every other week

You sometimes hear little whimpering noises from your passengers when you get on the throttle right after turning in.

You thoroughly enjoy showing the tailgater behind you how to drive around a highway off ramp.

Your racing budget is one of the big three – mortgage, car payment/maintenance, dating.

Your e-mail address refers to your car, rather than you.

You walk proper lines through the grocery store

You’ve been known to yell “It means ‘check your mirrors’, dammit!” at your television.

You’ve paid $9.00 a gallon for gas and thought it was a bargain.

You buy new parts because you don’t know where you put the spares.

You bought a race car before buying a house.

You bought a race car before buying furniture for the new house.

You’re looking for a tow vehicle, and still haven’t bought furniture.

You find that you need a new house because you’ve outgrown your garage, and the neighbors are threatening violence if you park one more vehicle on the road, or the front yard

You look on the purchase of tools as a long term investment.


The requirements you give your real estate agent are (in order of importance):
1) 8 car climate controlled garage with an attached shop
2) Outside parking for 6 cars, a motor home, a crew-cab dually, a 28’ enclosed trailer, and a 34’ fifth-wheel.
3) 3 phase 220V outlets in the garage for your welder
4) A grease pit
5) Convenient to a hazardous waste disposal site
6) Deaf neighbors
7) Across the street from a paint and body shop
8) Some sort of house with working toilet and shower on the property somewhere, or hookups for the motor home/

You measure all family acquisitions in terms of the number of race tires that could have been purchased.

You know well that orthodontic work is the equivalent of three sets of tires.

You sit in you race car in a dark garage, and make car noises, shift gears, and practice your heel and toe, while waiting for your motor to get back from the machine shop.

Your wife says, “If your buy another set of tires, I’m getting a mink”.

Your garage holds more cars than your house has bedrooms.

You have enough spare parts to build another car.

More than one racer supply house recognizes your voice, and greets you by name.

You have car parts in your cubicle at work.

You think the last line of the Star Spangled Banner is “Gentlemen, start your engines!”

You can’t remember when you last worked on weekdays, and rested on the weekends.

You’re registered for wedding gifts at Pegasus and Racer Wholesale.

Your Christmas list begins with another set of Hoosiers and Carrillo rods; and your significant other knows what they are.

You have a separate drawer for “garage clothes”.

People know you by your class letter, car number and car color.

Your reading material in your bathroom consists of auto parts and racing supply catalogs, several books written by famous drivers, every book Carroll Smith ever wrote… And 400 car magazines, none of which has a center fold.

People know you by your “offs”. “Oh, you’re the one who was stuck in the mud at Road Atlanta last weekend”.

HE-he he! Great...especially enjoy : "You sometimes hear little whimpering noises from your passengers when you get on the throttle right after turning in." (Although I suspect that they may begin moaning when they first recognize your plans to turn-in.)

OBSERVATION:

It has ALWAYS been a worrisome thought that if, one day, the earth is bereft of air, then "Air-Cooled" engines...won't be...and the "Water-Pumpers" will be in total charge. Of course, if the water also disappeared...then the joke's on us!

I Say!...is this, then, a bit of that-there "black humour"?

How 'bout, then, “This car (ANY non-French one) is more fun than the entire French air force crashing into a firework factory.”

CRASH x3

Looks as if they jumped over that barbed-wire wire fence...since it's still standing.

ELECTRICAL THEORY BY JOSEPH LUCAS ("The Prince of Darkness")

Positive ground depends on proper circuit functioning, which is the transmission of negative ions by retention of the visible spectral manifestation known as smoke. Smoke is the thing that makes electrical circuits work. We know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an electrical circuit, it stops working. This can be verified repeatedly through empirical testing.

--For example, if one places a copper bar across the terminals of a battery, prodigious quantities of smoke are liberated and the battery shortly ceases to function. In addition, if one observes smoke escaping from an electrical component such as a Lucas voltage regulator, it will also be observed that the component no longer functions. The logic is elementary and inescapable!

The function of the wiring harness is to conduct the smoke from one device to another. When the wiring springs a leak and lets all the smoke out of the system, nothing works afterward. Starter motors were considered unsuitable for British motorcycles for some time largely because they consumed large quantities of smoke, requiring very unsightly large wires. It has been reported that Lucas electrical components are possibly more prone to electrical leakage than their Bosch, Japanese or American counterparts. Experts point out that this is because Lucas is British, and all things British leak. British engines leak oil, British shock absorbers, hydraulic forks and disk brake systems leak fluid, British tires leak air and British
Intelligence leaks national defense secrets. Therefore, it follows that British electrical systems must leak smoke. Once again, the logic is clear and inescapable.

In conclusion, the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the form of smoke provides a logical explanation of the mysteries of electrical components especially British units manufactured by Joseph Lucas, Ltd.

A few Lucas quips:
The Lucas motto: Get home before dark.
Lucas is the patent holder for the short circuit.
Lucas - Inventor of the first intermittent wiper.
Lucas - Inventor of the self-dimming headlamp.
The three-position Lucas switch--DIM, FLICKER and OFF.
The other three switch settings--SMOKE, SMOLDER and IGNITE.
The Original Anti-Theft Device - Lucas Electrics.
If Lucas made guns, wars would not start.

Q: Why do the British drink warm beer?
A: Because Lucas makes their refrigerators.
This has been referred to as the smoke theory. When the smoke comes
out its finished, cooked or done for.

Never much "Giving-a-..." for automotive crests... I haven't wondered, till now, if ole Ferdinand & Enzo (who was always willing to sue anyone, incl. the Pope, at the drop of an Italian Chapeau...just ask the Bellini Bros. ["The Boys"]), ever had a dust-up over The Prancing Horse...and maybe even the colour Red! You'll recall F.P. DID steal many engineering ideas from The Tatra Motor Car Works. (<<<>>> Below)
Probably, the F-man used them first...and the irascible I-tie did the purloining.
Does anyone have knowledge answering to this possible trademark infringement?

<<<>>>: A Brief Illustrated History of Tatra
By Paul Niedermeyer on January 5, 2008

"Ferdinand Porsche’s design of the Beetle is a scaled-down version of the Tatra (minus the fin). So much so that after decades of legal battles, VW finally settled and paid 3 million Marks to Tatra in 1961. (Ledwinka’s four-cylinder Tatra 97 was so embarrassingly similar to the VW then under development that the Nazi regime halted its production after their invasion of Czechoslovakia."

"Fast IS Better!"

Some advise, "never tell a first timer to release the clutch and apply the gas simultaneously. that's bad teaching. it's too complicated. simply apply a small amount of acceleration then slowly let up the clutch. just like that you'll take off. so easy a 13yr old can do it."(--Casey Neistat)

BUT I SAY!... what's the bleeding Red-Line, on the Tach, there for...if NOT to be used in taking off from a standing start? ESPECIALLY in wet, or icy, conditions....and anyways, I just LOVE the smell of asbestos (and napalm).
