....when you look back at your car as you are walking away from it.

....when you go out to the garage to check on it and sneak a peak with no other reason to be there.

If you love to hear the sound of your car, "waking up", when you approach it with the key or unlock it.

If you love to hear the various pumps and fans still working when you park it after a hard drive.

If you've ever parked your car on a lawn after a hard drive and killed the grass directly under the exhaust system leaving a pattern of your system.

If you lie to your wife about how often you browse autotrader

If you run a separate load of laundry for ONLY your microfiber towels

If your wife's car is the only car the family can eat in

If you have a stack of perfectly good tires in the garage

When you use higher octane fuel even in cars that don't need it just to make you feel better

When you you drive by Quick Lube places and lough out loud, thinking about how synthetic oil change only costs $35 to do yourself.

Good list, guilty of a lot on here. Specially listening to my own, as well as other people’s exhaust.

You prefer to ride alone in silence so you can truly engage with the car and take it all in
(instead of being distracted by your SO's stories about work, or navi or radio or calls)

when you drive, you just want to drive

When you track the car enough that you have to have your front fascia repainted once a year.
