Every car enthusiast is in love with their car, there’s no doubt about it, but some people are just too much in love, they don’t even know it. We all have at least one friend that will go to the car wash every other day, post pictures of his or her car on social media and even neglect friends to spend time with their car. If you aren’t sure if you are obsessing about your car, read the signs below…
You have an account on social media dedicated for your car
Social media is so popular that people have multiple accounts. Personal accounts. You also have an account, and your car has at least one as well. That would be ok if the car is a Bond car or at least recognizable, but if it’s just a regular car, slightly modified, it’s too much. Actually, it’s too much if you post photos of your car on your personal social media account. It’s all right to be proud of your car and how it looks and drives, but don’t overdo it by boring people.
You take pictures of your car in any occasion
This situation is getting out of hand. People stopping and parking their car on the middle of a bridge to take a photo is too much! This is actually a real situation I saw with my own eyes. One guy parked his car on the middle of a bridge, ran out and took a photo of his car! I love scenic photos of good looking cars, but that was too much. It would be understandable if it was the middle of the night with no one on the bridge, but it wasn’t. So, if you risk your life to take a scenic photo of your car, you are obsessed.
You don’t have a girlfriend because you need money for parts
I think this is the ultimate sacrifice a car enthusiast can make. We all love cars, but get your priorities straight. It’s common to meet a fellow enthusiast with a project car that isn’t finished. Usually, these guys are single or rich. I’ve personally heard a couple of guys say that they don’t want to be in a relationship because it’s too expensive to take a girl for dinner or drinks, and there is so much more to do on the project car. At first, it seemed like a joke but the guys couldn’t be more serious. The worst thing is that every one of those guys were over 30 years old. I would understand a 20 something year old guy saying things like that, but a 30 year old… He should teach his kids to love cars by now.
So, if you catch yourself doing one of these three things, take a moment and think about what your life will be like in a couple of years.
