You Know You Drive A Turbo Buick When…


– even the “fast” cars avoid you on the street

– you’re more concerned about the car’s insurance than your own

– your primary concern while shopping for real estate is garage space

– you still dread having to remove any of the turbo, intercooler or throttle body hoses because you finally got them on there just right

– you think that manual windows are probably faster than power ones

– your buddy at the track says: “I see you’ve joined the thousand dollar a week club”

– when driving a turbo regal or Buick T type people ask if that’s a fake grand national

– when you pull up to a red light at a busy intersection along side a van load of police officers, have a 15 minute talk to one officer who owns one, and nobody behind you honks the horn

– when you hit 2nd gear and your rear end wants to be the front

– your running low 11’s with all the stock parts

– you know exactly what to do when your brakes go out, because you’ve had practice

– the parts stores stock every brake booster and master cylinder for all cars back to 1960, but when you ask about a part for your powermaster they look at you like your trying to get plutonium to run your flux capacitor

– you typically run more air pressure in your intake manifold, then you do in your back tires

– you can pull the engine out of your car blindfolded

– when your Turbo Buick sits in the garage and your brand new shiny car sits in the driveway

– when you have the local tow truck company on speed dial ‘just in case’

– you mow the lawn and keep hitting pieces of bumper fillers

– when you own a Turbo Buick with maybe $15,000 invested into it in total, and it will smoke a brand new $70,000 Viper

– you constantly buy her new jewelry even though you have not installed the last goodie

– when your buddy in a 03 cobra passes you because he’s tired of hearing your turbo

– you’re at the E85 pump and the guy next to you says, “Um sir, did you know you’re putting the wrong fuel in your car?”

– someone asks you “is it normal to leak that much oil” and you say “it’s not leaking oil, it’s marking it’s territory”

– you become a self-taught electrical engineer from fixing the electrical problems on your turbo Buick

– you nail the gas at a 30 mph roll and your Turbo Buick starts to go sideways

– people look at you with that dumb look when you say ‘only 22 lbs of boost, I’m just getting started’

– you have to remove dogs, children and other odd objects from your cold air inlet

– the only people brave enough to rev their engine at you are heading in the opposite direction

– when you buy new turbo buick parts, you add 2 more for future repairs

– when it takes a whole 30 seconds to put the window up

– you think 4000 miles is a long time for your tires to last

– you are to scared to walk away from your car anywhere you drive it even at church

– if it ain’t leaking oil it must be out

– when the guys at the local hang out all are on edge because a 10 sec LC2 idles and sounds just like a 13 second one

– when your Turbo Buick goes perfectly straight for the first 20 feet THEN starts to go sideways

– when your street car, smokes most of the trailered race cars at the track

– When your new mechanical speedometer comes in and you find out it “only” goes to 120 and you call to see if they have something more suitable
