OK, here’s the scenario. You’ve just met a new guy and have spent the last two hours in some fun, stimulating – and a little flirty -- conversation. He definitely has your interest – but you’d like to get a little more of the inside scoop on this guy, you know, take a little peak behind the curtain of wit and see what’s really there.

What can you do to get a deeper sense of who Mr. Wonderful-at-this-Moment really is? Take a look at his car. Honestly – no joke. Even if the guy isn’t a motorhead fanatic, what he drives and how he cares for it can tell a lot about him…and give you an idea of how he may treat you.

Which of the Four Main Types is Your Man?

If the car is clean inside and out and looks well-maintained, he’s a guy that likes to take care of what is important to him – that will apply to you, if things go that way.

Vintage

If it is an older – vintage/collector-type car – this says he has an appreciation for detail and the finer things in life while valuing the backstory and history. These guys will tend to be the nurturing type and good listeners.

Trickster

Is the vehicle, old or new, really tricked out? This is a guy who likes attention and the more tricked out the ride, the more the attention needs to be on him. And guess where he likes to focus his money and time – numero uno. If you ride with this guy, you need to be comfy being second fiddle and doing a lot of support work for his ego.

Obsessor

What if the guy is super finicky about his car? Say it’s always in perfect shape and he gets a little touchy about stuff dropping onto the carpet or things being dirty and out of place. This is a guy that has to have a lot of control and isn’t very happy when he doesn’t have it. His car is his kingdom. And in this kingdom, the rules must be followed.

Slob-o

And then there’s the guy with the dirty car. It never seems to get thoroughly washed and the interior? Let’s just say it has that total lived in feel. Here’s a guy that is very happy-go-lucky you might say and a little soft on the details – which means responsibility, as well. He probably doesn’t keep up with the maintenance which means he pretty much leaves things to the last minute and then lets the chips fall where they may.

Now granted, generalizations are just that and there are always extenuating circumstances. But taking such a look can give a point of reference, and can be a private little game you play. How fun is that!
