    Default A Christmas poem for motorheads.

    I swiped this and changed it a bit.

    "Tiz the night before Christmas," I thought with a frown.
    I was stuck at the house. The car was broke down.
    The engine was sitting in the garage all trashed
    I grabbed another beer. I think I’ll get smashed.
    The kids in the house, it seems, just for fun,
    Had hidden my tools I needed to get the car to run.
    On the couch in the den, my wife had sat pouting;
    I sat stunned at my workbench, trying to keep from shouting.
    When all of a sudden there arose such a clatter,
    I saw that my ignition had something the matter.
    There were sparks shooting out of the Coil and the Cap.
    "No problem, " I thought. "I’ve got AutoTap. "
    But I found out the car I thought was unstoppable
    Had a PCM that turned out completely unswappable!
    "No problem," I thought. "I've got HPTuners right here.”
    And then I remembered my cable was sent back for repair.
    The tail pipe burped, and the lights all went out.
    I could feel my blood pressure beginning to mount.
    But nobody heard as I vented my rage.
    The mechanics were all on vacation these days.
    And no parts stores answered their phone.
    I was nose deep in trouble, completely alone.
    Then on the Garage door, I heard a soft knock.
    As the hands just touched midnight on my Snap-On girlie clock...
    "What's your problem?" he asked.
    "Never mind friend, I know.
    I checked out your website five hours ago.
    I did some research on your methods, so
    I knew that this time bomb was going to blow.
    Who was this guy? Who did he think that he was?
    He was dressed in red coveralls and black Craftsman gloves.
    His eyes had the twinkle of a mechanical genius.
    His smile cut down personal distance between us.
    He rolled in his tools, and went straight to his work.
    "Whoever built this engine’s a jerk,”
    He said with a smile with no sign of any guilt,
    Replaced some parts, and quickly rebuilt
    A new MAF and Intake he quickly supplied
    With a billet throttle body at least 90mm wide
    Some custom tuning, at least I think so,
    From engineer elves from the North Pole.
    "Now a Cam, and Heads, even new Roller Rockers!"
    He chanted as he threw out my old stockers.
    "Cheer up, my good friend! Lose that mindset so tragic!
    Mechanics often appear to be magic
    To people who don't understand what we do.
    Now the Lifters, the Pistons, and a set of Headers too!
    Look at the clearances, check one and two,
    Tweak a bit, test a bit, presto! We're through!"
    My engine was back! The whole car checked out!
    Tears of joy wet my face as I wandered about.
    "How can I thank you? You must be Saint Nick!"
    He said, “Really, my friend, it's not such a great trick,
    If you don't give up hope, and keep a lid on your doubt,
    And read the GRRRR8 forum, it will help out.”
    And I heard him exclaim, as his reindeer set loose,
    "Merry Christmas to all! And consider Some Boooooost!……"
