I am not a looney

So, I decided to check the gearbox fluid on my 360. I got the undertray off and checked the fluid (all well there). So, I thought, while I've got the tray off I'll clean off all the grit and leaves and so on that have accumulated in the past ten months.

Well, a neighbor see me with my Simple Green, hose, and scrub brush and asks 'what's up?'. After the explaination, he looks at me like I've just said I'm nailing Jell-O to a tree.

So I just said, 'I'm not a looney. I'm a Ferrari owner.' Or is that the same thing?

If, when you were done cleaning, you sprayed it with clear enamel and buffed it out you would be a looney..

Garage
In my opinion, your neighbor is the weirdo

I have sat in my garage working on my cars for 16 hrs straight sometimes, my neighbors as me " what are you working on now?" I tell them "nothing in particular, cleaning the vent ports, re-tightening loose screws, taking small pebbles out between my treads, you know the basic stuff"

all I get is "OK then have fun"

Of course, it could have also been the Queens of the Stone Age playing on the garage stereo.

I think my neighbors should be used to it by now. Me with my toothbrush and paper towels cleaning the valve covers...
