Default What are you OCD over?

What are you guys most OCD over when it comes to your Corvettes?

I'd have to say my biggest pet peeve is dirty exhaust tips so I am constantly polishing and wiping down my tips. Either that or finger prints... My wife almost stabbed me one night when I instinctively swatted her hand when she leaned on the rear quarter panel.

My girlfriend put her feet on my dash one day while cruising down the 101. She had slipped her flip flops off, but she almost got dumped.

Every time I try to reply as to what I'm OCD over, my ADHD kicks in and I forget the question . . . . .

That would be one, but what I have always thought to myself when a pass a car and the passenger has their feet up on the dash, is what would happen if they were all of a sudden in an accident at that dash air bag deployed?

I don't like having my cup holder open when nothing is inside it.

Back in the late 80's we were riding our bike down I-95 between DC and Richmond. We were riding a full dressed Yamaha on a trip to TN. Then it happened. A guy passed us on a cruiser type bike. He was leaned back on a duffel bag which was on the rear passenger seat and had his legs thrown over... yes, I said OVER the handlebars. I could not believe that anyone would ride like that.
I wonder if that guy is still alive?

I'm OCD about C7 posts in the C6 forum.

Seriously, I'm not OCD about my Vette. It truly is just a car to me, albeit a very fun car. I drive it all the time. I race it. It rained here two days ago and it's dirty because I haven't washed it yet. (I know that will bring out the OCD in some people. )

We're not OCD about the wife's Shelby either, it's her DD, and just a car as well, although it's holding its value much better than my Vette.

Passengers not slamming the door, or flinging it open for that matter.
