We receive quite a bit of e-mail here at Hot Rods and much
of it arrives with a generous dose of humor attached. Here is a sample of
some of what we've received (at least what's printable). After all, you
have to have a sense of humor to be Hot Rodder...
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with... a broken
fan-belt and a flat tire."
"For those readers too young to remember, a car used
to be a simple piece of machinery, something like a very fast rider mower
but better because you couldn't mow the lawn with it. You started this up,
drove off at pretty much any speed you desired, and then exercised a variety
of constitutionally guaranteed liberties.... No more--nowadays if a car
cannot survive a drop from the Gateway Arch and emits any vapors more noxious
than Evening in Paris, the federal government won't let you own it, and
what they will let you own you can't really drive, because fifty-five miles
an hour is the speed at which a spirited person parallel-parks, not motors
to Chicago." - P.J. O'Rourke, Republican Party Reptile, 1987.
Akroyd: "Its got a cop motor, a 440 cubic-inch plant.
Its got cop tires, cop suspension, cop shocks. Its a model made before catalytic
converters, so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the
new Bluesmobile or what?"
Belushi: "Fix the cigarette lighter." as Jake &
Elwood in, The Blues Brothers.
