    Default You might be a racer if ...

    Finish this sentence:

    You might be a racer if ...

    I'll go first:

    If you own five vehicles and only one is street legal.

    You equate the cost of everything to how may tires it could buy

    Your closet contains somewhere between 8 and 16 tires.

    You own 5 sets of wheels (all the same size) for a single car.

    If someone merges into your lane while you're in it, you hold your ground and then laugh when they scare themselves.

    Every time you see a Miata you check for a roll bar.

    Your best suit is fire retardant.

    You think the most important spec on a street vehicle is it's tow rating.
