Roadside Humor Deptartment

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."

Car breakdown

"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.

Blues Brothers

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.
