Default You know you own an EF when...

your motor/wheels/suspension costs more then your car

a paint job and rust removal is on the top 3 list of things to get done to your car

92 hp doesn't feel all that slow

you itch to find a climate control in mint condition

you'd pay more for some discontinued CRX floormats then you would for someone to fix your car

you think power windows/steering/locks are for pussies

you've had condensation in at least one of your EF's lights

your stock exhaust is only slightly bigger then a Wendy's straw

you do 95% of your shopping at a junkyard

you chase down old people driving mint EF's asking them if they'd sell it

you're scared to drive in Winter for fear of your car rusting

Let's keep it going!!!!!!!!
