120. You get in your car and

120. You roll your car backwards down your driveway into the street, then turn, stop, and let it roll forwards down the hill w/o any gas. You finally pop-start it just before you get to the stop sign 1/4 mile from from your house.

121. You drill holes in the trunk to reduce the car's weight.

122. You regard such things as "carpet", "passenger side mirror", "interior", and anything else that possesses "extra weight" as an infectious disease that came with the car and must be "cured".

123. You check your MPG every fillup, the old fashioned way (miles traveled/gallons from full tank to full tank) <--- sorry I have obd0 and am spiteful

124. You become physically ill at the site of a Hummer (H1, H2, or H3, doesn't matter) doing anything, anywhere, at any speed, even if parked, period

125. You can tell by your gas gauge how much fuel you got to 0.3 gallon accuracy.

126. You are up at 1:30 AM when you have work in the morning and you need to leave in 6 hours. Yet you still keep reading through the old threads only to post a snide comment like this one to one-up everyone else!

127. You can't leave this thread alone. You just have to add just one more tweak.

128. i successfully bump started in reverse whoo! Now my 12 volt can live longer. I just had to be a bit more careful to the clutch and listen to the engine (apparently when holding the clutch in while rolling in reverse i hear the car making the reverse sound but the engine isn't on!) making sure my key is in IGIII and then clutch to friction point.... feel it! grip it! and it comes alive!!!!it was smooth too! BOO YAH!

Phil, you are a true freak to have done that!

129. A Chevy Sprint, 3-cylinder, automatic, driven by a 60+ year-old man actually out-accelerates you... (it happened today - however I did catch him since he only hit 60 km/h in the 70 km/h zone ).

130. You agree to spend $497 on a set of LRR Bridgestone 381's and the wheels to put them on when your all-seasons are still in perfectly good shape. I'll keep the all-season's for winter.
