Engine Addiction Crisis

It has recently come to my attention that a new addiction seems to be increasing and causing untold crises in the American family. This addiction, as with many others, is supported by a family which enables the addiction. As a 'public service', I would like to list below the warning signs for the addiction and signs that a family may be aiding or enabling the victim. The addiction, as you may have guessed as a reader of this magazine, is Gas Engin-holism.

YOU MAY BE ADDICTED TO OLD GAS ENGINES IF:

You told your family that the engine you bought is the last one you will buy-for the third time.

You start hanging around with people who use a different language such as Foos, magneto, flywheel, etc.

You begin to dream of vacationing in exotic places like Portland, Indiana rather than Hawaii.

Your favorite colors are red and green (and it's not even Christmas).
