Got any?

I'd like to start an interesting quote rotation on various parts of the site, so if you have any let 'em rip.  They can be famous quote from films, stuff you've heard at trackdays, or something you've read in a forum - as long as it's a good one.

My personal motto has always been "Because you can't drive a house."

One credited to Frank Sinatra is "You drive a Ferrari when you want to be someone, a Lamborghini when you are someone."

I saw this on a forum some time ago: "The sound of a Ferrari makes the hairs on my neck stand on end, when a Lamborghini goes by the hairs on my balls stand on end."

And the latest one I saw in Wax's sig last week - probably not really suitable but thought provoking nonetheless "I can make a new kid in 9 months, the waiting list for a Ferrari is over 2 years."

Cool Thread.

Apart from the general Jeremy Clarkson rubbish, here is one I liked from the man himself.

Enzo Ferrari - "Aerodynamics are for those who can't build engines"

That one's on my wall with an F430 poster near it.

Oh, and I think Jeremy Clarkson said....

About the Lotus Elise - "This car is more fun than watching the French Air Force crash into a fireworks factory"

About the Lambo Murcie LP640 Roadster - "It doesn't want to kill you, but it will if it's necessary"

JC has a lot of great quotes, but most require significant context, I want relatively short quotes that stand on their own with no explanation.  The first one will work, the others won't.

Oh, you want witty and self-explanatory? Mmmmm....

I'm too tired to remember any. :o

 :bump:

Want at least a dozen good ones to start - 20-30 would be ideal so most folk don't see the same one too many times whilst navigating the site.
