Hi folks, Thought I might ponder this old saying for a moment.
" A Wednesday Motor"
I come from a "car nut" family. Mostly early Holdens and A brief but glorious attempt By myself to pilot a Competition 4WD. My love of working on bikes, was nurtured from a young age and one night I was yackin over a jack in the man cave with my old man and uncle, I was telling them about how enjoyable and RELIABLE the 750 was compared to some of my other sleds When my uncle pipes "It must be a Wednesday motor" !.
Now for those scratching there heads a Wednesday motor is a motor built on a Wednesday. Whats the difference? I hear you ask. Well.......... You dont want a motor built On a Friday, as the bloke is yackin to his mates about his planned fishing trip or hot date on the weekend, that can begin the moment he finishes slapping these engines together. You certainly dont want a motor built on a Monday. As the other poor bloke struggles over his hangover listening to his mate tell him tales of his Date night conquest. SOOOO..... naturally you would want a motor Built on a Wednesday Yes Go ahead Mock a quaint old Australianism if you wish BUT !
We can learn THREE valuable lessons from this..... ONE- Dont get in the way of a man and his weekend TWO- Sitting around talking shit with your mates building an engine is a great way to spend the day. Three- If you own a motor that was built on a Monday, runs great, and never gives you trouble, That was built buy a Woman..... Cause Multitasking is hard as F#ck !
