If you are disheartened by the prospect of not washing the car(s) in the driveway during the cold weather season, you might be a car guy.

If you have a pair of Levi's that you wear for working on your car and you never wash them because they are just going to get dirty again, you might be a car guy.

If your wife is always pointing out grease on your hands, neck, forehead, ears, and/or under chin that you missed as you exit the shower, you might be a car guy.

If you can identify the make of a classic car just based on sound, you might be a car guy. If you get the model and the year, extra credit points.

If you have a 10-gallon steel trashcan in your garage full of washed and folded red shop towels...

You might be a car guy.
