    You know you have an s13 when you have enough spare parts to build a second one

    You know you have an s13 when you spend more time under the car then you do in the car.

    You remember you have an s13 when the tax bill arrives

    You know you own an S13 when you find something a bit broken and put it into 1 of 2 categories:

    1) Potentially life/engine threatening? - Check with Kev just how dangerous it is, then drive it anyway after being told "Stop being a big poof, at least your petrol tank didn't fall off on the motorway" and fix it when it actually falls off/isn't raining.

    2) If not, fix it when it actually falls off/isn't raining
