1. You think of 1275cc's as "the big engine."
2. You have ever tried to draft behind a bicycle.
3. You don't see what's so funny about driving around with your turn signal on all day.
4. You've ever thought seriously about making a parking space under a semi trailer.
5. You wait for a long weekend before checking the pressure in the spare.
6. You've ever lost the brakes but didn't notice until you got home.
7. You've ever been pulled over and warned that the freeway is for motorized vehicles only.
8. You turn on the heater fan when your spouse complains about the cold, despite the fact that you know it will make exactly zero difference.
9. You and only one friend have successfully push-started the car, going uphill.
10. You can't quit smileing.

You might be Sprite driver if someone at work needs a 1/2" wrench and you instinctively reach for your front pants pocket.

.if you've lied to your spouse about the funny smell in the oven or dishwsher.

.if everyone at work can tell your parking space when you're gone.

..if you instinctively look into backyards and driveways when you walk the dog.

..if you've convinced your spouse that "Vizards" IS a coffee table book.

..when acne-boy at the local NAPA cringes when you drive up.

..when your daughter catches you attempting to double-clutch her Camry.

guilty of all the above..

How about all your family members run and hide when they hear the words "bleed the brakes".

/bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/lol.gif That never happens at my house. My wife would never do that. Nope, not ever. /bcforum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/angel.gif

Your inventory of "spares" includes at least one donor car!

You wish you had a dime for every time you have heard " I used to have one of those!", "That is SO CUTE!!!" or "Where's the wind-up key?"
