You may be a British Car Owner if you ...
Always Park Downhill.
The guy at the parts house is listed as a dependent on your
income tax form.
You get in your car and are surprised when all the instruments work.
You tell your wife that you were out till 3 AM because the
car broke down ...
and she believes you.
The family is no longer upset at having to share the dinner
table with SU parts.
You don't trust anyone named Lucas.
When your generator dies, you just pull another out of your
box of Lucas bits.
You wash your hands before working in the engine compartment.
You'd rather give the family Pit Bull a bath than tune your
SU carbs again.
You allow four hours for a trip, three for repair, one for driving.
You can unstick a jammed starter in the dark, in the rain, in
five minutes ...
and don't think it's a big deal.
There is no oil on the garage floor so you know the car's
Your car makes a funny sound and you immediately know what's wrong ...
how much it will cost ... and what tools you will need to repair it.
