Default Define Obsession

I am waxing my car--at 9:30 at night under my porch light.

Waxing your car at 9:30 at night is dedication.

Waxing your car every night at 9:30 would be obsession.

You haven't gone over the line yet.

Of course, posting to an internet forum while waxing your car might qualify as an obsession of another kind. :D

Better than waxing by flashlight.
The bright side of this is dont have too worry about the sun baking the wax on!

, I was posting between coats.

scorcer, my wax says let it dry :D

Meguiars
Gold Class Clear Coat Car Wax

Horribly sticky stuff.


I just finished. Wiping on and off wax with a porch light and a little flashlight takes skill.

Or stupidity.

We'll find out in the morning

geezuz the insurance is heafty... but its classed a hot hatch still and is subjected to increased premiums + your age doesnt help either, I only saw a decrease in my premiums on the likes of 1.4/1.6ltr cars when I reached 25

but you must get that car as they are a hoot to drive.

Ah, yes... Cars are definetly a labor of love, and an obsession for some.

I've been there...

Changing brakes at 11:00 p.m.

Changing U-Joints at 4:30 a.m. to make it to a car show in time thats 3 hours away.

Replacing a starter in a Burger King parking lot.

Changing oil in the pouring rain...when it's 12 degrees outside.



It's a guy thing. My wife will never understand

I need a couple of excuses why I need that car...

here's my current list:
*gf lives one hour with train away, train == annoying + expensive
* it's cool
* it's cool
* i want it
* i'll quit smoking for it
