    Pity I didn't get you when I called! Lol. According to the female sales rep I got when I called a while back I wasn't a motoring enthusiast, I'd like to think I am.

    I'm constantly looking for things to do to my car to make it that little bit different to all the others. Even at times buying tools that I don't have just to do the job myself where sometimes the tools cost more than if I had just taken it somewhere to get done.

    Spending hours/days/weeks making something only to have some someone say "What? How long? You're nuts!" but laughing it off cause of the satisfaction you got from what you've achieved.
    Always up to help mates out with their own cars, usually being the one to say "c'mon, lets do it". Constantly on ebay/online looking for the next mod to spend money on.

    Having a daily and not having to be told it's "the car you drive everyday" lol I'm sorry but that ad irritates me cause apparently you've just gotta like cars, not work on it yourself and not be involved in any clubs/scene and be called an enthusiast but I got and I quote "I'm sorry we only really insure motoring enthusiasts" :/

    Maybe i should ring up for a quote to see if i am a motoring enthusiast or not! The Shannons test!

    for me, its the fact that no matter where i am going or why, i always look forward to jumping in the car and driving..

    I'd say I'm a car enthusiast due to me trolling these forums at work every spare second I've got haha!

    this is hard to answer because the term covers all sorts off people... there are car guys who own shit cars as stated and slam them and then put $5000 of rims on it, then there are guys who color the rims with strange colors that dont suit the car (that is the same as black rims on any car but thats just me).

    then there is the strange sex addiction to cars that is like WTF???? you are sick.....

    i personally call my self a car enthusiast as i like clean factory look with clean mods but that also come from working on car all day every day.

    I think it's not just about the car itself, but working on them and driving them is a big part of being an "enthusiast"

    Or look at it this way. Young and old people both have an interest in the same thing. Older people are enthusiasts, younger people are hoons lol
