    Christmas Poem

    Sorry guys, no new Christmas poem this year. Too much turmoil and did not get to it. Will recycle two older ones.

    Joe M. the Turbo-Less Gearhead

    Joe M. the turbo-less Gearhead,
    had an MX-5 that's slow.
    And if you ever raced him,
    you would say that car won't go!

    All of the other Gearheads,
    use to laugh and call him names (Spinderella).
    They woundn't let poor slow Joe,
    join in any FI games.

    Then one stormy Saturday,
    MK Turbo came to say,
    Joe M. with your car so slow,
    Won't you like a big turbo?!

    Then all the Gearheads raced him,
    as he shouted out with glee!
    All you force inducted Gearheads,
    won't be keeping up with me!


    Merry Christmas to all you Gearheads and especially Joe for being the fall guy this year.



    Yata Got Run Over By A Yugo - (Read to the tune of Grandma got run over by a reindeer)


    Yata got run over by a Yugo,
    Walking home from Hooters Christmas Eve.
    You can say there's no more in the country,
    But as for me and White Knight we believe.

    He'd been drinking too much Bud Light,
    And we begged him not to go.
    But he forgot his medication,
    So he stumbled out the door and into Joe.

    When they found him Christmas morning,
    at the scene near the race track.
    There were tire tracks on his forehead,
    And incriminating raccoon prints on his back.

    Yata got run over by a Yugo,
    Walking home from Hooters Christmas Eve.
    You can say there's no more in the country,
    But as for me and White Knight we believe.

    Now we're all so proud of D-rail,
    He's been taking this so well.
    See him in there watching NASCAR,
    Drinking beer, eating chips, and raising hell.

    It's not Christmas without Yata,
    All the Gearheads dressed in black.
    And we just can't help but wonder,
    Should we take his Corvette out to the track?

    Yata got run over by a Yugo,
    Walking home from Hooters Christmas Eve.
    You could say there's no more in the country,
    But as for me and White Knight we believe.

    Now the keys are on the table,
    And garage door open wide.
    And that Atomic Orange Corvette,
    Is just ready for a ride.

    I've warned all the other Gearheads,
    Watch out for Smileyface.
    He'll just hop into the cockpit,
    Get out onto the road and start a race.

    Yata got run over by a Yugo,
    Walking home from Hooters Christmas Eve.
    You can say there's no more in the country,
    But as for me and White Knight we believe.

    Merry Christmas

    Re: Christmas Poem

    I struggled with recycling this one, but what the heck. It was one of my better ones:



    Twas the night before Christmas and out on the driveway, not a Miata was stirring, not even on the highway.
    The tools were all hanging on the garage wall with care, in hopes that Santa would put some more there.

    The Gearheads were all nestled and snug in thier beds, while visions of mods all danced in their heads.
    And Yata in his nighty, and Thumper in his Depends, had just started dreaming of thier own Mercedes Benz.

    When out in the street there arose such a clatter, I sprung from my bed to see what was the matter.
    When what to my wondering eye did I see, a raty red Miata and eight tiny jet skis.

    With a big crusty driver so arrogant and coarse, I knew in a moment it must have been Boris.
    More rapid than eagles his jet skis they came, and he shouted and whistled, and called them by name.

    On Winky, on Dinky, on Speedy and Smurf. On Mia, on Tia, on Bubba and Murph.
    So over to the garage door the jet skis they flew, with a Miata full of parts and accessories too.

    As I drew in my head and was turning around, into the garage Boris came with a bound.
    He was dressed in all fur and roadkill for a hat. His clothes were all greasy and could use a laundry mat.

    A bundle of parts he had flung on his back, he looked like a gypsy just opening his pack.
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, soon gave me to know I had something to dread.

    He spoke not a word but went straight to work, and filled all the tool boxes then turned with a jerk.
    And laying his finger aside of his nose, and giving a nod out the garage door he goes.

    He sprang to his Miata, to the jet skis did toot. And away to the interstate did this entourage scoot.
    But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight. Happy Autocross to all, and to all a good night.

    Re: Christmas Poem

    I was going to get all upset until I read the part about Thumper in his Depends and realized this was non-fiction. I have always suggested a funeral pyre on the Ganges River was the way to go but I don’t think there’s enough wood left in India for his girth. Again, just trying to be practical. Turns out, he’s somehow still alive or something which is great for the environment but terrible news for all mankind.
