Lollz... I found this old list I made in 2005 and I was cracking up reading over it. I thought i'd post some up and see what the other ladies have to add...

You know you're a girl gearhead when...

Nothing settles your nerves like blasting thru the streets in your ride
Your favorite place to shop is a junkyard
You park in the back of every parking lot (even when you're wearing killer heels)
You buy nail polish that matches your car
You have more diecasts then shoes
You don't mind dirt under your nails

Okay, add some more!

I'm sure I can come up with a few more...but here's a start. I know I'm a lady gearhead because...

I own more Franklin Mint cars than purses
I mix polish colors to match other people's Camaros (and mine too of course)
I'll repair anyone's car...even if it's a stranger stranded on the roadside (only women)
I bought a 6" pair of heels that I can't wear more than 5 minutes just because they look awesome with my car
I had to have all my own tools even though my husband has an entire garage full
I don't care when I break a nail while I'm working on the car but any other time I get pissed...lol
and I finally became an official lady gearhead when the mechanic that owns the shop across the street started calling me "Ms. Goodwrench"

Thanks Doug! I was writing my post when you said this so I didn't include it in my response but I do appreciate the comparison because Selena is one very cool chick!

Thanks, Envy

Here's a few more...

You know the difference between understeer and oversteer
You aspire to cut a perfect light
In your vocabulary LSD is not a drug (works for lots of other things too... like 4-on-the-floor is not an orgy lollz)
Your car is cleaner than your house
You've used grocery or rent money to buy mods
The sound of a nasty cam makes you weak in the knees
You know all the specs on your car better than anyone
You think speed limits are for people who can't drive

Okay...here's a good one! I might be a lady gearhead because I keep my lug nut key in a color coordinated lipstick case in my glove box.

And I think speed limits should only apply to other people...lmao
