The Texas 8 2012 Shirt contest

Alright guys, this year's shirt will be a list of the top 8 "You might drive an RX-8 if..." sayings.

So start posting them up, multiple submissions are good. If you've got 20 of them, that's fine. Once we have a pretty decent set, we'll have some voting on the top 8, and those will make it onto the shirt.

I'm looking forward to everyone's inputs.



So far we have:
1 ... you spend more time under your car than you do under your spouse.
2 ... it wasn't @#$%(&! snowing!
3 ... you shop for 710 fluid by the case load.
4 ... it's not 1950 and your car still floods.
5 ... you have more pics of your car than your girlfriend/wife/kids.
6 ... you have a 8mm socket in your glove box.
7 ... you've actually read the owners manual front to back.
8 ... you usually start every sentence about your car by saying, "once I get it out of the shop..."
9 ... you keep a funnel under the hood and extra oil in the trunk.
10 ... you have put more engines in the car than actual mods.
11 ... every time you leave a stop light you floor it to help prevent carbon buildup.
12 ... you have ever pushed your car out of the garage cause you didn't want to start it and leave it running so it doesn't flood.
13 ... you wiggle the connections under the hood to gain power steering back.
14 ... you lose in a drag race but then follow it up with a challenge to run some curvy roads.
15 ... you see the gas pump more than your spouse.
16 ... you want a car to match how AWESOME you are!
17 ... you live life at REDLINE!
18 ... your wife asks every month how much we are spending on the car.
19 ... every time you call the parts stores for parts you hear "Mazda has the patent on that part."
20 ... you can talk about your wankel and it not be vulgar.
21 ... you drive up to a gas station while looking at the prices and think....**** it.
22 ... every time you see a Z you automatically think they're your rival.
23 ... anytime someone gets out of your passenger back seat you scream "CLOSE THE BACKDOOR FIRST!"
24 ... you get pissed whenever people slow down in a turn.
25 ... you can talk about oil weights and compositions for more than 20 minute straight.
26 ... blowing a motor is semi-exciting because you might get a newer one that probably has more power.
27 ... carpooling is out of the question if you can drive yourself.
28 ... you have the compression app on your phone.
29 ... you can change 4 Coil packs in less than 5 min.
30 ... you buy oil by the case.
31 ... every Ricer on the street thinks you want to "Race."
32 ... you laugh at the beginning of any converation about MPG's.
33 ... you've turned your car over to a shop and asked if you can help work on it because you're afraid they're going to mess something up.
34 ... the smell of unburnt fuel coming out of a car without a midpipe isn't so bad.
35 ... you get a good laugh at the drama stirred up on www.rx8club.com.
36 ... you have been pulled over by cops looking for the blue car with a black hood!
37 ... an autobody shop owner calls you to tell you that you have a coolant light thats stuck on, a check engine light, and your car smells like its leaking gas and your only response is..."That's normal"
38 ... you actually own the "Blue car with the Black Hood".
39 ... you've gotten more engines than you can count on one hand.
40 ... the only reason why you keep the car is the thought in your mind that one day, boost will come true.
41 ... you have pictures of your car giving you a hug.
42 ... you think "I can tripple that" after reading the recommended speed sign entering a turn.
43 ... you own more than 4 jack stands incase another member needs to work on their car too.
44 ... gas station attendants know you by name.
45 ... you've used the phrase "a dorito spinning in a peanut"
46 ... you contemplate a goldfish for your tail lights.
47 ... you've used your trunk as an oven.
48 ... you purposely drive without the music turned on.
49 ... there is a 10mm socket in your glove box.
50 ... 87 octane gas makes you nervous.
