I decided to sign up at autoweek.com to post a few replies on what I think defines a car guy. Wanna see what I´ve thought up so far?

A car guy is someone who will reheat food in the microwave using the time that matches that of their dream cars´ horsepower rating.

A car guy is someone who leans out the window yelling SWEEEET when they see a car they can only dream about buying.

A car guy is someone who knows the horsepower, torque and weight of his and each one of their friends cars.

A car guy is someone who memorizes the displacement of every car they aspire to own one day or have owned in the past.

A car guy is someone who´s saved every single receipt from purchases they´ve made for their car. (except gas receipts)

A car guy is someone who will sit in traffic and look around at every car wondering if he´d be able to take them off a stop light.

A car guy is someone who´d park his car in the most noticable spot in a parking lot and watch for people to look at his car.

A car guy has one of his numerous dream cars as his desktop picture on his 19" computer monitor, and a picture of the same car from a different angle on the 15" monitor of his other computer. (in my case it´s a European spec. Ford Escort Cosworth)

A car guy is someone who when he buys something for his computer, he thinks his car will get jealous so he buys something expensive for her too.

A car guy is someone who constantly takes flak for liking known "POS" (in my case the 92-95 Taurus SHO) cars but doesn´t care because it looks cool.

A car guy is someone who constantly checks out new cars on lots, even if he can´t afford them, and whips out the calculator himself to check performance per dollar ratio´s right in front of the dealer.

A car guy is someone who knows more about a car he wants (even before he see´s it in the flesh) than the dealer he´s chatting with on the lot.

A car guy is someone who when he says "I want that car" and his passenger says "why" will tell that passenger all the important stats.
I.E.:
"I´d like to get one of those new Grand Prix GTPs."
"Why?"
"Well, how does 260 hp and 280 lb ft torque from a 3.8L Series II V6 w/ FWD and a kit to shorten up the gear ratios and supercharger pulley sound? I thought so."

A car guy is someone who will keep a small reminder of a past accident he´s had. (i have a piece of my turn signal assembly)

A car guy is someone who memorizes the date, and sometimes even the time of every car purchase he´s made.

A car guy tries to make more than one webpage dedicated to his pride and joy.

A car guy will make a top ten list of why cars are better than girlfriends.

haha good post james. I got a good chuckle out of the previous two because I´m guilty of both, especially the first :)

You can usually find my GT parked with the wheels turned out to the stops to show off the wheels :)

A car guy would be out wrenching on their car rather than sitting here looking at threads like.

A car guy will chase down the Audi S8 he saw in the parking lot yesterday at Lowes Home Improvement Center, just to say he´s seen one of those all aluminum chassis turbo v-8 beauties up close... and drool on himself. :-]

Guilty. yes, i know all the numbers about every car I have owned, my family has owned, and most of my friends. I know the dates of purchase for evey vehicle i have owned, my family and my best friend. reciepts - yep, I got em all! pieces from accidents - yep. usually the keys of the dead vehicle and some piece of the car that was laying in the road. yes I reheat food for times like 3:02, 3:50, 3:51, 4:02, 4:40, and 4:54. have also used 5:02.

Don´t lean on my car with those pants on! you might scratch the paint. get naked right now!!!
