...DON'T change cars as often as your underwear...

They might think they like cars but they just like the idea of the latest/greatest and don't care about the particular model they have atm.

If you wake up at 7am on a Saturday to check out a local cars & coffee.

If you prefer to wash your car yourself.

If you go the extra mile like waxing your pain, cleaning/conditioning your leather

If you drive sort of like a douchebag because it's fun, but know when to be restrained.

If you're knowledgeable about things like steering and rowing through your own gears.

If you think there's way too much useless tech in modern cars.

When most other motorists let you know how good you're driving with a one-finger salute.

When you ignore important phone calls just to continue to enjoy the drive uninterrupted.

When the girlfriend gets dressed up in thigh-highs, heels & new VS stuffs and you ask if you can take some pictures.......then lead her straight to the garage.

No one ever washes my car but me, and I'd NEVER valet my car either. I'll park it, and walk, even if I have to park 10 blocks away and take an Uber back to the event. Yeah, I be THAT guy. LOL

If you wake up in the middle of the night and look at your digital clock and it is ALWAYS reading a 3-digit number that has something to do with cars, you might be a car guy.

This morning, it was 4:09 for the awesome Chevy big block engine. But I am always getting numbers like:

328
335
540
327
650

A coincidence? I think not.

When you regularly stop your friend/SO in their tracks mid-conversation so you can hear a car’s exhaust as it passes.

When you always take the route with a tunnel so you can blast through and laugh like a little girl when you hear your exhaust echo.

When you get up the first thing you do is go to a window and check car if you didn't use or don't have a garage.

...when you have just finished washing your car and you go for a drive on a nice sunny day and somebody from city watering crew thinks its a good idea to water the median strip in the middle of the day and you cannot avoid driving through the water and you scream oh $hit at the top of your lungs.

If you refer to your garage as "the service bay", you might be a car guy.
