When I go to tech ('technology campus') which is at the local college even though it'* stiill a high school class.., for automotive..
When I had my suburban, people used to sit and lean and rub on it even if it was dirty.. Then the time I'd just laid fresh wax on it and waited for it to harden up to towel it off. . some kids in my class thought it'd be funny to write 'eric is a fat ***' on the hood in the wax.. i knew whos it was, and i told him he'd have payback.. since he'* got a VW jetta (wolfsburg) and he brought it in all the time.. well, there were letters scratched in my hood too (i'm guessing his nails came in contact with the paint) and so after I found that , like two weeks later, his was in and he was changing the tires off his rims with new ones, and while he was off balancing them, i tastefully wrote 'miguel is a punkass' down the side of his car since it was after the roads were salted and he hadn't washed the car for a month or two and mine was waxed even if it was 10 degrees.. (seen here)
oh well, i made sure i used my nails and i went semi-deep into the clearcoat and partially into the paint..
nobody knows that i did it except my buddy john who'* also in my group
but as you can tell, i'm extremely fussy involving ANY of the cars i've ever had
usually people just think 'oh just a car.. nothing special'
well for me, a car is my personality.. it shows who you are in a way
if it'* clean, it shows you care about the stuff, little, big, everything
if it'* dirty, shows you're not a clean person and you don't give two *****
