You get high off of Marvel Mystery Oil while your engines are running.

You might be an engine collector if...

You covet the engines of that of your neighbors, and try to bribe them for it.

My wife likes to buy smelly candles for the house and when the "candle lady" came to our house one time I asked her if she had one that smelled like WD-40.

If your car has to stick out the shed door, because it won't fit in the shed anymore

If you permanently smell like gas, and have irremovable black marks on your hands

A couple that I'm guilty of

You find a tractor on E-Bay four hours away and your wife says "That's cheap.Buy it.It will be a fun adventure together".

If someone ask how many engines you have and you start thinking running, stuck, projects, in parts, and you really can't answer.

You might be an engine collector if..........you live in a one room frame house, but had an all new 36' x 50' x 12' shop on a new slab, with an air-conditioned office built.

You might be a engine collector if........you bought a box full of parts you can't use and instead of getting rid of the parts you buy a engine they fit.
