Addiction to horsepower

My wife does not understand my need (addiction) to modify my truck or her Durango. Tim the Tool Man is a hero of mine. I admit I might be a tad obsessed
with wanting to make something better than stock, But who isn't? Anyone else with this problem?

Your not the only one brother. Now that you admit it and except it, it's time to heal. Now go build a fire breathing, coal rolling monster.

every vehicle i've ever owned has been modified, with the exception to one. i need more power, i need to go fast. and its a hobby of mine to sit in the garage and wrench on something, whether it be my bike, talon or now the PSD.

the only vehicle i havn't touched is my Expedition, originally purchased to tow before i felt the need for diesel. she's bone stock with 208k miles and still goin strong. i'm pushing for 300k, we'll see!

fortunately though i've never dated a girl who got upset with me, they always loved riding in my cars because they were fast, or in the PSD now because its a big a$$ truck. girls love big trucks and speed as much as we do i guess? My dad was always the one complaining about me spending money on modding things. until he got a diesel too and he's starting to get the bug....
