    How about semi famous car guy quotes?

    When Car Craft did a spread on my GTX I was quoted as saying “I have a big box of receipts that will never be added up”.

    I still stand by that remark...

    Similar as already posted, but heard in the pits at the local dirt track numerous times, "He ran outta talent somewhere just past the flag stand...."

    A car owner asked a Formula One driver whey he went out of a race. The driver responded "It was electrical failure, Lord Stanley- a wire was knocked loose by a connecting rod." Brian Redman told this story on TV about his non-finish in a BRM.

    After convincing my wife I needed just one more Pontiac I told her "You can send me to Pontiacs Anonymous if you need to". She laughed and I got the car! She's a good one!!

    “ Something will get it, you just got to figure out what it is” a simple statement that an older mechanic, Gerald Glass, told me in the first days of my career. Referring to a problem with problem I was having with a truck axle. I have used that statement many times in my life.

    Heard at Race tracks through the years "I think he pulls his helmet strap too tight and goes brain dead" "Hero or Asshole move" def/ when driver takes a high risk, low percentage move in traffic and gets away with it = Hero, Most times flips out of park, in the fence, car comes back on hook, destroyed race car = Asshole, And everyone thinks, where did he think he was going. Another old racer quote, " The Older I get The Faster I was" My favorite " Legend in my own mind "
