"The more you know, the more you have to do"
Mine doesn't need explanation,but I must give credit to Grace Slick for the last line.
Lots of good ones up above.
Mine just reminded me of back in the day fast hot rod builds that had nothing to do with aerodynamics. Thanks to Enzo!
I think mine came from an ad I saw in Rolling Stone Magazine in the early 70’s, or did it?
Really can’t remember,I know at the time it was words to live by
My just reflects upon how as an old curmudgeon, I don't like the new technology taking over my life.
Mine came from, who knows where... I change it around now and then.
I was at a car show and this guy pulled in looking for a parking spot and yelled out, "WHERE DO I PARK? MY WIFE DIDN'T COME WITH ME TODAY!"
Good Source, that's where mine came from. Seemed appropriate for some builds, mine included
I only get complaints that it doesn't work.......
You're right^^.. I tried clicking and it didn't work....
Don’t let your alligator mouth overload your parakeet ass

Mine is from a plaque on the dash my friend's '36.
I like it so much I painted in on the back bumper of my motorhome.
Mine isn't funny or thought provoking, but I liked the tangent (with this place) about the undeniable effects of the uninhibited spread of knowledge and ideas.
... Reminds me of "MY WIFE DOES THE DRIVING ... I JUST STEER" ...
Just a few that come to mind:
"I spent lots of money on cars, broads, and booze; the rest I just wasted"
"I started out with nothing, and I've still got most of it"
" I'm not a Technician, I'm a f#cking mechanic!"
Awhile ago my signature line was a quote from @The37Kid :
"Anybody can build a highboy, it takes a real man to align four fenders."
From the "Full Fendered Forever" thread:
Like a lot of you, I change mine from time to time. It's usually borrowed/stolen from someone else on here and I always give 'em credit for their wisdom.
I think mine makes more sense now more than ever..."Everything is going too fast ,and not fast enough" Warren Oats aka "GTO" ..Two Lane Blacktop
"Push the Pickle " boat hand throttle reference ! lol
"If you go fast, you don't have to look good.........If you look good, you don't have to go fast!
Or as Daddy would coach me,
"Son, in life, would you rather be a Smart Ass or a Dumb Ass?"
I like mine which was pretty much an accident.
I took a simple digital photo of a 1933 Ford V8 truck badge resting it on a piece of old lumber and this is how it turned out.
No photo shop or fancy tweaking.
Taken in Boulder CO approx. 2007 from memory.
Must have been that Rocky Mountain sunshine haze that made the difference....
Mine's not funny , just true .
Hi 47ragtop.Mine too.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
Somebody used to have "If it ain't broke, I can't afford it", I always liked that one, forgot whose it was though.
I saw one on another forum that said, "If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is!"
I thought that was fitting.
That roadster in the shop isn't going to put itself together!

I like my father in laws saying. "IT'S THESE OLD CLOTHES THAT MAKE ME LOOK DUMB"
Not sure what I was drinking when I came up with mine.
how about w.c. fields--"it was a woman who drove me to drink. never did thank her for it..."
