Ever try to keep going when the readout shows ZERO? Do it I dare you ... bet you make it to work and then to the nearest gas station (provided you drive normal or let's say with the flow of traffic). there is reserve in the tank past the ZERO point ... go try it out.

When you tell your wife the mods you purchase are a necessity and it improves the car.

When you look for parking spots that can 1) be far enough from others to keep your car safe but 2) close enough that others can stare at it with envy.

when you admit to yourself that you don't really need a 414 hp daily driver that gets 12 mpg, but are having so much fun with it that you don't care.

when you get the gas from the highway rest stop instead of the one at the country store 2 min away even though its 50 cents more a gallon because there is no way you are putting no-brand gas in this thing

Best thread since my joining. I can relate to most, including....

- when you actually avoid conversation (or ask passengers to shut up) just so you hear the engine/exhaust symphony.
- when engine/exhaust sound is actually a symphony.

and my personal:
- when you sell one and the only thing you can think about is getting into a new one once again!
