Default You Know You Love Your Car When...

  • you close other people'* doors for them because you are afraid they'll slam it
    no smoking
    you spend more time with your car than your signifigant other
    you write a biography for your car
    you spend more on car products then food & clothing
    you brush your rims even more than your own teeth
    your car gets as many baths as you do
    you stint on personal things for yourself in order to have your car
    you give your car a fancy-shmancy name
    no one is allowed to sit in the back seat or eat in your car
    you cry when you find something wrong with the paint
    you wake up every morning and look out the window to make sure your car is alright and is still there
    No one else can drive it

anyone have anything more to add?

ROFL...guilty of all of the above

...brake dust, and bird crap and pollen are your number 1 enemy
...you make sure it smells of vanilla extract inside and be sure to have at least 2 air freshners

Ha! That'* got me pegged! Look out the window every night and morning to see my car.
Right now cottonwood seed is my #1 enemy. And I prefer the smell of strawberry over vanilla.

Pretty accurate! No one will ever drive my car besides me. And I brush my rims all the time (because they're the crosslace and a PITA to clean! )

You should add:

When you drive somewhere, and every time you park and walk away, you look back at your car 3 to 4 times and say to yourself, "that'* a nice car!!..."

I'm guilty of that on several occasions!

You know you love your car when:

It has a 3 inch rust hole in the back wheel well and you would still never consider getting rid of it.

When you park half a mile away from a store to avoid people banging their doors on it.

When every roll of film you get developed is just pictures of your car. (That'* me for sure)

When you bang your feet together to get any dirt off your shoes before getting in your car.

And MY favorite:

When you disassemble the shifter head just to paint the button gold (I just did that an hour ago)

I let you ( and the only person ) to drive Siyar..

another to add to the list..

You're idea of a good time on weekends is spending quality time ( washin and waxing or whatever else ) with your car

When you look at all the other cars and know you're car is better and different from the other cars ( even the same year and color )

When you no lil quirks, trades, personality of your car down to shift feel

When you can tell your car apart from cars that looks identical to yours parked around you ( without the keyless that is )

All of these apply to me, and I can add:

you talk about the car all the time to people who don't care

you talk to the car

you occasionally pet it (so it will feel loved I guess :P )

you feel a little like you're cheating when you're in someone else'* car
