Not necessarily car related, but:

Old enough to know better, still too young to care.

Live fast, die young, leave a good lookin' corpse.

I remember this one as being "Ass, gas, or grass...nobody rides for free"

Also, Steve McQueen is attributed with this one:

"Racing is Life...Anything that happens before or after is just waiting"

And one false Eleanor Roosevelt "qoute":

"America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, bad ass speed."

Some quotes from Colin Chapman lifted from Wikipedia:

Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman (9 May, 1928 - 16 December, 1982) was the founder of the British sports car company Lotus and principal of Team Lotus, which won the Formula 1 World Championship seven times.

Simplicate, then add lightness.

You won't catch me driving a race car that I have built. (This remark was obviously tongue-in-cheek, as numerous photos exist of Chapman driving racing cars he built.)

Make the suspension adjustable and they will adjust it wrong -- look what they can do to a Weber carburetor in just a few moments of stupidity with a screwdriver.

To add speed, add lightness.

Any car which holds together for more than a race is too heavy. (Also tongue-in-cheek, as race cars must test and qualify before the start of any race.)

Accountants are the scorers of industry; they have nothing to do with playing the game. (Probably not tongue-in-cheek, as he was implicated in the De Lorean scandal shortly before his death.)

Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.

I forgot one earlier, which I can't believe, since it is my favorite. For all the racers out there:

"You can live in your car, but you can't race your house."

My dad had one of the orginal Saab sold over hear. 3 cilender, two cycle, front wheel drive with the engine behind the front axel, the raditor up agaist the firewall so it could double as the heater core. I helped him reach over the fender to pull the engine out so he could overhaul it. I was 12. It must have weighed all of 75 pounds.
Friends were over for dinner one night and asked what kind of car he was working on. When he kept saying "Saab," they said, "Oh, so it is a S.O.B. ?"
In the end, he agreed.

Yep... They are great cars from an engineering standpoint. Lots of neat ideas. Then when you have to do routine maintenance - say change the belts, replace the harmonic balancer, replace the timing chain - and you really start wondering about having the engine reversed...

Sorry U Bought And Real Ugly.

"Tip? You want a tip?...Choke it before you start it."

The post about a mirror reminded me of a time in my youth when myself and a couple of buds got pulled over by the CHP on our bikes. We were messing around on the freeway, pulling wheelies and other nonsense, no baffles in our pipes, etc.

One of my friends was large, but soft-spoken and a really nice guy, although he didn't look it. The cop asked him "I see you have no rearview mirror on your bike. Is that supposed to be cool?"

My friend said, "No, but I have a neck that works. That's cool."

I chuckle every time I think about that.
