Rep: 10 Camaro77Girl is on a distinguished road
Default Car Lovers: Doing some research! Quick survey questions. :)

I'm doing some research for my college writing class and I'm in dire need of some answers from all of you car enthusiasts out there! Responding with some quick answers would help a ton and I would be really appreciative!

Are cars your hobby or profession?
Just in general, do you prefer to spend time with cars or people?
How much time do you spend participating in car-related activities?
On a scale of 1 to 10, how often do you think about cars?
Would you rather work on your car or go out with your friends?
Does your love for cars ever interfere with your social life?
If so, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much does it interfere?
If you have one, does your girlfriend/wife ever complain that you talk about your car too much?

I know the questions may be a bit odd, but thanks so much for answering!

Are cars your hobby or profession?
My day job is selling auto parts through a dealership parts department and I like working on cars in my free time. I would say that it is both, however even if I get another job, cars will remain a hobby.

Just in general, do you prefer to spend time with cars or people?
Definitely cars, they make me happy. I'm not much for big groups, parties, or crowds.

How much time do you spend participating in car-related activities?
Including my full time automotive job, probably 60 hours a week.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how often do you think about cars?
Probably an 8. I think about them all the time if I'm not in school. I also think about them all day at work because I'm in the field.

Would you rather work on your car or go out with your friends?
Work on my car for sure, I don't really have friends. However, Id rather be out driving my car than either of those options.

Does your love for cars ever interfere with your social life?
I would say that it does, 100%. Cars can form great communities of people (like this one) and help them socialize, however for me I've found those people hard to come by. Because of my interest in cars, my hobby is pretty far removed from most people my age (college). It makes it difficult to small talk with people and find common ground. Its not all bad though, my cars make me happy and they are always there for me.

If so, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much does it interfere?
Probably like a 7 or an 8, but it makes me happy so its not too bad.

If you have one, does your girlfriend/wife ever complain that you talk about your car too much?
I'm single, probably due to my response to the question above. I don't really do much other than cars so I don't meet alot of people.

Hopefully my answers helped! If you need anything else let me know.
