    You might be a drag racer if........

    - You think the primary purpose of wings is to PREVENT flight.
    - You take your helmet along when you go to buy new eyeglasses or check out cars.

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

    - When something falls off of your car, you wonder how much weight you just saved.
    - Your email address refers to your race car rather than to you.

    - You've paid $4.00 a gallon for gas without complaining.

    - 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!

    - 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' 5th wheel.

    3) 3 phase 220V outlets in the garage for your welder.

    4) A grease pit.

    5) Deaf neighbors.

    6) Some sort of house with a working toilet & shower on the property -or- hookups for the motor home.

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

    - You have enough spare parts to build another car.

    - More than one racer supply store recognizes your voice and greets you by name when you call.
    > - You think the last line of the Star Spangled banner is: "Racers start your engines!"

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

    - You astound the clerk at Sears by bringing in a snapped breaker bar every other week or so.

    - Your family brings the couch into the garage to spend time with you.

    - A neighbor asks if you have any oil, to which you query, "Synthetic or organic?" and they reply, "Vegetable or corn."

    - You enjoy driving in the rain on the way to work.

    - You always want to change something on your street car to make it handle better.

    - You've tried to convince your wife you needed that flow bench to fix the air filter on her station wagon.

    - You save broken car parts as "momentos".

    - You've found your lawnmower runs pretty good on 108 octane gas (but doesn't particularly care for alcohol).

    - Instead of pictures in your wallet, you have time slips.

    - You quote your street tire wear life in weeks rather than miles.

    - After you tell your wife where you'd like to go on vacation she answers: "Why...is there a race there?"
