    Just read the thread “ How Long” concerning problem bolts, reminded me of a quote a mechanic told me when I frist started in the profession “ Something will get it”. While quite simple, I have applied that simple quote to a lot of things in my life, broken bolt or broken life. Thought maybe others here may have some pearls of wisdom that may help we mechanics and hotrodders. Bones

    All time favorite, A Wiseman, Is only a Fool, With a good memory!
  3. My grandfather always said “ be clean and be honest” if you do just those two, you will never have a problem. And in my young age I questioned him, and he responds “ would you want to deal with someone who’s full of shit and smells like it too?”
  4. Lots of great quotes in members tag lines! (Not mine...)

  10. When someone REALLY pisses off, I have to tell them, "If the phone doesn't ring, it's ME".
  11. Some of my favs:
    If you don't have time to do it right, how will you have time to do it over?

    Never stop a man that's working.

    If you can't explain it simply you do not understand it well enough.

    Never eat anything bigger than your head.

    I knew that there were good quotes in tag lines, always read them, but thought maybe here we could add some more.

    Murphy, your quote is very close to my tag line, lol.

    Let’s hear some more, I love the funny ones ! Bones

    whispered in my buddy's ear on his wedding day by his grandpa.

    "if it tastes good, eat it...if it doesn't taste good, eat it"

    to this day my buddy doesn't know if his grandpa meant the new bride's cooking or something else.

    If your only going around once, make sure someone else buys!

    At a wedding I was at, the best man said to the groom right after the ceremony, "congratulations you just gave away half your shit"!

    W.C.Fields "It was a woman who drove me to drink. My only regret is I never wrote to thank her".

    If it has tits or tires it's going to cost you!

    I had a dog named Ziggy, he would walk up to something and sniff it. If he couldn't eat it, or screw it, he would piss on it. Thats how Ziggy would roll..

    This is one my dad used to say when talking about a car that ran really well or was really competitive: "That thing runs like Jake the bear".

    I never understood what that meant, or who Jake was, if Jake could run fast, If Jake ran well, or even if Jake was really a bear...

    My dad passed away in 2009 so at this point that saying is one of those things I will have to just be satisfied with not having the answer for.
  27. If it Flies. Floats or Fornicates it
  28. My Daddy told me "Don't fight with something that gets bigger everytime you hit it." I know now what he was speaking about....LOL
