From fixing headlights to getting greasy every Saturday, the love you have for your car goes way beyond the normal bond between man and machine. You can’t fool us — you’re madly in love with your car. But hey, we get it! We have our own immense car love, that’s why we love what we do. Worried about the time you spend with your motor? Here are 5 tell-tale signs that your real true love is your car.
1. IT’S IN THE DETAILS.
For you, the perfect way to spend a weekend is primping your car. You spend hours washing, buffing, waxing, and vacuuming your baby. You have all your own detail products because only the best will do. It’s quality time well spent.
2. THERE ARE STRICT RULES FOR THOSE LUCKY ENOUGH TO RIDE.
If you’re a traveler in your car, there is a strict set of rules that apply: 1. No eating and drinking in the car so don’t even ask. 2. The Driver picks the entertainment. 3. No kids allowed, they’re sticky. 4. Muddy shoes? Hope you enjoy walking.
3. IT’S CLEAR IT IS A RELATIONSHIP
It may not be clear to you, but others in your life have commented on your relationship with your car. You have several Facebook albums, an Instagram page, and a YouTube account all dedicated to pictures and videos of your beloved car….which, by the way, has a name, Lucy.
We, too, have social media accounts where we love to show off our equipment. Follow us so we can see your car photos!
4. YOU WANT TO FIND OUT EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT LUCY.
You catch yourself at work scouring over blogs, online forums, and web sites about your car. Your bedtime reading includes the car’s manual to find out everything you can about its special features. When you see someone else driving a similar car, you strike up conversation about your car and trade information.
Your car has become an obsession. You peek at your car through the blinds – just to make sure it’s OK-before going to bed. And, while you’re away from your car, random stuff reminds you of your car. A smell, a certain color … it just makes you miss your car. Store your car on an Eagle 4-post car lift and keep it safely inside.
