How anal are you about your Mustang?

I was thinking about this, and any of my friends and family would tell you that with my car, I am the most anal person there is.
Here is my garage setup.
After we put new carpet in my living room, I took the old area rugs and put them under the car in the garage.
We installed a new insulated door, and I put a small space heater out there. I also put a deadbolt, that only I have the key to, on the door leading from the garage to the inside of the house.
I usually go out there at least every other day to run the car duster over it as well. This is probably the nicest car I have ever had, and I do seriously love it, and I enjoy taking care of it!
So even if you don't have a garage to keep yours in, how anal are you about yours?

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

I used to be FAR worse. I am still pretty bad though. People I work with laugh when I tell them I dont like driving my mustang to work... they just dont understand what morning driving on the interstate driving does to a car. That and I dont drive it in the rain and all that stuff... dont race it. etc.

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

I get sh** for pushing my car in and out of the garage if it needs moved! I don't like just starting it for a few seconds just to move it 15 feet!

I don't let anyone drive my car. Not even my dad (who paid for the majority of my car). And if I ever have to pickup my brother from school i bring an extra pair of clothes. He sweats like a motherf***er.

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

I let people drive my car that I trust. I don't get too bent out of shape if something happens to it. I learned a long time ago you can't have nice things and someone is going to screw it up. So I just learned not to expect it to stay perfect.

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

Some people just don't get it....
That's when you ask them what they love the most in their life, then compare your car to that. But some people on the other hand don't have a passion for anything. IDK?

If it's not for a car it's probably for a game console... Sometimes both

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

I will not take her out if there is salt on the road. So she spends most of the winter in the garage. I will let trusted friends drive from time to time. whats the point of having something great if you can't share it. I try to avoid the rain though.

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

I am the only one who drives my Mustang. No eating, no drinking, no smoking in it. Actually, no food period. If we're going to get get fastfood, we're taking your car or another one of mine. No carseats or little kids period (yeah I know, rough considering I have a 3yrold). You can ride in her but I will be watching your a$$ to make sure you don't touch the windows, bring in dirt, or leave any kind of fingerprints. Sit, but do not move lol. I do not take her to Wal-Mart or any other such place where people open their doors and just don't care. If I absolutely have to go somewhere where there is a public parking lot with her I park waaaaaay in the back 2 miles away and yes I am the a-hole taking up 4 spots, even though sometimes I wonder if I am asking for it from some smarta$$ kid. I WISH I had a garage, but I don't, so I have to put up with weather getting on her. That part really bugs me but there is not a whole lot I can do about it at the moment.

I'm the polar opposite of anal. I let everyone drive my car. I figure what the heck, it's a car. I love my car, but I won't get bent if it's dirty. I prefer it clean and shiny, but whatever. On my way to back from Texas, I was I was filling up at a chevron, this old beat up station wagon pulled in and four little boys from like 7 to about 12 fell out over themselves trying to come look at my baby. I was laughing, their mother was so embarrassed, but I let them get in the drivers seat, take pictures, whatever. Sure I had to wipe the crap they tracked onto my floor mats, but really, what's the point of owning an enjoyable car if you're too worried about screwing it up to enjoy it?

On the flip side, (this is an edit because I didn't mean to post this yet) I do take care of my car. Oil changes, brake checks, fluid levels, wash every weekend. I do, however, take better care of my guns than my car lol

Re: How anal are you about your Mustang?

I won't take my Cobra anywhere that I have to be more than 10 feet from it. And yes, no little kids, food, drinks, or smoking. I don't care if your pop bottle has a lid or not. I'll stop at the gas station and you can get a 20oz fountain and chug it. It's not coming in the car. Either that or beat feet! My car my rules!
And if I'm standing there BS'ing, don't lean on my fing car. That is seriously disrespectful!
