Default I know now I'm one of you

Well it didn't take long but I know now that I am one of you. Truly!

Driving home from taking our son to school, my beautiful wife of 37 years asked "How much more are you going to spend on this car?"

Funny thing is other than ordering a top boot, personalized tag, license plate frame and buying a chrome exhaust tip and some clean up supplies, oh and a Chrysler baseball cap. I haven't spent any money on my new car.

Must be all those chrome goodies I have bookmarked. Sigh...

Yep, it's called the "Mod Bug" and looks like you caught it.

Just ask Santa for them and then when Christmas rolls around, there they'll be under the tree.

It's proper term is the Mod Monkey, you'd easier get over a crack addiction! So if you've not spent any money, quick, run for your life! Maybe you can stay ahead of the mod monkey...



I just spent the day researching hoses to offset my stainless up-pipe configuration from my intake to my IC... damn monkey won't leave me alone...



So I've just decided to accept it for what it is, kiss and make up. Me and my mod monkey are great friends now...



Now I just hope we don't have any little mod monkey babies running around soon...

Well it's too late for me. Run while you can Santa! I have to talk myself out of mods every day. Of course it doesn't help that I'm always on the forums, eBay, and craigslist because of my iPhone and having idle hands and WAY too much time.

Hooligan,

The problem right now is that if Santa gets his hands on them they may not make it under the tree. If you ask Santa for something PT related for Christmas and don't get it. check out my Sleigh Mods in January. Ho Ho Ho.

Hey their Cat,

That's only cause you don't live near my neighborhood or I would have already snagged it and had my boys drop it to the ground on 20"s shaved, and smoothed before I rolled her in the booth for a little one on one time with some of my own secret mixed Candy Pearl!!!

Go easy,

Candyman

I find myself checking craigslist every 15 minutes when I'm not doing anything, you know, as if someone is gonna post the parts that I'm dreaming of in brand-spanking new, never opened condition at 1/100th of the price. It sort of helps that I live on a not-so-populated island (hardly any modded/blingged PTs) which is also disconnected from the continental U.S. (expensive shipping), and I've got other things to spend my money on (which makes me have to think heavily about purchasing mods that I want).
