Just curious, what do fellow car lovers do when someone leans on their car? I so wish my car to transform like this whenever a stranger tries to use it for support.

Drive Safe,

That's true, each of us long for the same but that's impractical yes. Similarly, i go and annoy the two wheeler cutting in front of my car such that he stops abruptly without squeezing in.​

You just witnessed a Bentley in your ORVM and now you just want it to overtake you so that you can have a look at every angle and every curve of it. You switch lane and try to slow down but the Bentley don't overtake you and you are annoyed.
And your eyes are on the ORVM for 50% of times just to see if it's coming close and going to overtake your car or not.

I do some things that every car lover does...But not all the things.I do not abuse my car,but neither do I baby it. I do not slam the doors shut,I get the wheels rolling before turning the steering,honk before a blind turn(it's OT :stupid:),I make the mats all muddy during the rains,but my mother? SHE EATS green cholaas IN THE CAR!(it is called harbhara in Marathi,not sure what is it called in Eng). Leaves small leaves ALL OVER THE CAR. Also,she keeps the fruit seeds in the bottle holder. When I eat samosas in the car,she keeps the disposable bowls in the glovebox,when I have to access it,I play a nice game of navigating through the G/B.Dad's cool,but still,does not pay attention to maintenance.It's his car,so he should mind it.We were running on 2-year-old OEM wiper blades this monsoon,till I forced him to drive to the accessories store.Does not switch off the turn signals after the turn/lane change,even after the tick-tock sound. It was rear-ended by a bike,and the bumper is still dented.Since when? 1 year. I take more care of the car than the owner himself. Thanks for reading this rant [evil]
Missed out on one:Downshift if the car is shuddering. My mom does not do that in any case.C'mon,it's a 3-cyl Diesel,and you are sitting in the front,I'm taking all the vibrations.My poor Chevy Beat [cry]

Car and You: An Eternal Love-story!

The image that I am going to place below has certain images which depict the feelings of a true petrol-head. At times we and our cars have to fight a battle against the families, friends, wives, girlfriends et al. In the end, do you still share the same emotions for your car as depicted in the pic?

This actually could have been put in a funny thread etc or could have been just another face-book meme but after seeing this pic and the statements on it, I could not stop myself from putting forward this question to all of you.

Does your partner accept your unconditional love for your ride and the emotions you have for it?

In a jovial and humorous way do tell us the love story of you and your ride!

Buddies,

Here's how a Car lover's Dad reacts when he spends money on his car even when the Credit Card is on verge of going over-limit[lol].

I am sharing a small conversation that took place between me and my dad over the phone when I was at Autopsyche for Exhaust upgrade of my car earlier in 2014. It actually is very interesting.

Phone rings: 5:15pm

Paa: So is the car ready?
Me: Haan, It's ready. It is sounding really sweet.

Paa: How much money did you waste?
Me: Pretty reasonable.

Paa: Tell me first or else stay and sleep in your car. Forget you have a home in Noida.
Me: Well it is 11000/=

Paa: Oh god!! (silence for a minute)
Me: Very reasonable

Paa: You have lost it!!
Me: No, the car is with me. I have not lost the car.

Paa: My son, You have lost your mind.
Me: No paa.

Paa: I guess we should expedite the search of your partner for the wedding. Only she will stop you from spending on the car.

Me: Well, This car is my passion paa and no one can change it. You need to live with it.

Phone down. The conversation ended after 4 minutes.
To be honest, I am not afraid of sleeping in the car but really scared of being married:biggrin:

Regards

Akash
