Ok, let's have a little fun here!!

You just might be a Doofus if...

1) Your ER bill routinely exceeds you parts bill.

2) Your wife goes to Jiffy Lube because it's cheaper in the long run.

3) You've ever been treated for a car-related injury to your "privates" (ie Herculiner on the "hootus")

4) Your neighbors DON'T ask you to work on their cars, even though they know you've got a garage full of cool tools.

5) You can ID automotive fluids by taste

Feel free to add to the list!

changing the oil on your buddy's car you ask, "Where did you get the red motor oil?"

... after blowing a pertronix, alternator and regulator, it takes a pimple-faced tire-jocky at Les Schwab to tell you you're batteries wired backward!

Yeah, I heard of some doofus doing this once. What an idiot!

You change your oil and notice a pool of five quarts of new oil on the ground where you forgot to put the drain plug
back in. Thank god I didn't try to start it. Doh.

You help your buddy cleaning his "concourse" car and you're proud of yourself for cleaning all those "crayon marks" off. (how could he have missed those before...)

By the way, GT350Clone, your car ROCKS!!

1. While restoring one part for a show you damage a minimum of two others.

2. You drop the brake pedal bolts on your trunk lid while walking by your coupe and you don't even need the garage light because you can feel the dents in the dark.

3. You get in your car with a screwdriver in your back pocket.

4. You grab the wrong color of spray paint while trying to touch up that area you can see really well but can't reach.

I'm sure there's more...

You cut your wrench down to get at a nut, then need to go and buy another one because you don't have enough leverage for the rest of the nuts!

No idea who this was....

Thanks

Tune up your friends Pinto and forget to gap the points. And then, when the car runs like &^%$, you follow him from Philadelphia to somewhere in New Jersey without ever remembering (the pimply-faced mechanic kid in New Jersey explains it to him the next day but, fortunately, you are now 2 states away). Wow, 25 years later and the feeling of Doofishness is as strong as ever!

...if you ask a friend to provide a rally pac so you can compare the innards to yours, and in the process butcher his up almost to the point of replacement.

...if you tell your mechanic who's replacing your water pump if you want it painted, and you say no. Later, the hot water cleaning process turns it into a nice rosy rust color, which clashes with Ford Corporate Blue.

Thank God I did neither.





I did both.
