Talking How do You Know You are a Car Guy?

The Feb. 2010 issue of Road & Track had an amusing list of 30 indicators of a "car guy." Here are my 10 favorites:

1. You have a whole draw filled with cruddy slightly rusty hose clamps.

2. Jay Leno's Garage seems like an island of enlightenment and perfect sanity in a world gone mad.

3. Your air compressor is slightly larger than the refrigerator in your house.

4. The only time you use foul language is when you're alone in your garage and things go really wrong- which is every 5 minutes.

5. There is no day so bad that the sight of a buff-colored issue of Hemmings in your mailbox doesn't dissolve all worldly cares.

6. You own more than one floor jack.

7. When you go house hunting with a realtor, you automatically reject any home without a 2-car garage or room to park a car trailer.

8. Half the money you earned in your 20s was given to a man in a Snap-On Tool truck.

9. You have a wall locker in your garage containing at least 8 cans of motor oil of different brands and viscosities.

10. You imagine that someday you might own an old beater of such low status that it won't bother you to mix brands and viscosities while doing an oil change. That day, however, never comes.

Do you guys have any to add to this list?
