People have been using the term “Carboy” the same way as the word “car enthusiast” and/or a true “gear head”.
My question is: What’s your definition of the term?
“You may not agree with what they cover. You may scoff at their latest feature. But at the end of the day I will support any and all automotive blogs and sites that I can. True Carboy spirit.” – @team_not_you
“Someone who is obsessed with cars but at a more technical level, has one or more cars, that he/she constantly works on themselves and/or drives with spirit but usually both… someone with these attributes and knowledge I would consider to be a carboy or have carboy spirit.” – Team Limit/Limit Auto/Grip Burglars
Some definitions from the street family:
“Giving it hell and having fun doing it! While, enjoying what you’ve built, the culture, and friends you make along the way.” – @stache4cash
“Carboy spirit is just staying true and loyal to the game. Loving the culture and having fun with it. Not doing it because it’s the trend or how would you say “faking the funk”. You know you’re in love with cars when you just sit and stare at it for no apparent reason and just admire it (which is what I do btw) lol . Always striving to expand your cars capabilities and go beyond it’s limits. That’s what carboy spirit is. At least to me.” – @_dirtydanz
“Being passionate about what you like and respecting what you don’t.” – @miss_ej1
“Only you know your car. And how much love, passion, and effort you put into it. The car shows and reflects a piece of that person’s aura. When I look at your car or Kitty’s car I see you guys in them; Tougel in his EF, etc. People’s personalities shining through their build.” – @midnightmenu
“Carboy/Cargirl is simply an enthusiast of unbiased love for car life” – @killer_kunoichi
“My outlook, love the culture and have fun with it. You know you love cars in general when you look at the ones that you see everyday and wonder why the company built it and the purpose they wanted it to serve to the consumer. I spend countless minutes (and many cigarettes) of my days staring at mine and Kitty’s cars thinking about what I should do next. No need to rush things. Take your time to figure out what you want to do next. Aim to change the way a lot of people look at the culture. Be you. Be your own style. Follow your element. Don’t attend to negativity, for that just generates more negative energy. Be in your own world, make everything CʘʘL in your eyes. Drive to clear your mind. Drive to test yourself. When you work on your driving, you work on yourself.”
