i was wondering if there is anyone else out there who feels the same way i do about cars...

to give some examples... i feel very attached to the cars that i have owned, wether they were sports cars, or family cars it didnt matter. i feel a "bond" with my cars as if they are one of my pets. i feel like my car is always there for me. it never complains, it cheers me up, it shelters me etc...in return i take care of it, wash it, maintain it, etc..

when my car is at the mechanic i feel anxious, as if though i have a sick family member at the hospital, or as if im taking one of my pets to the vet. when my car starts to malfunction, i worry and i start asking myself if im the one responsible for my vehicles "health"

even when ive come to the point of selling my car, i feel like im losing a close friend, so many memories my car knows more about me than even the closest people to me. it always keeps my secrets, and never judges me.

i know it sounds wierd, but has anyone ever felt this way about a certain car? as if it were part of you?

I love my Subaru Impreza.

But still it's just metal, plastic and screws.

I usually have a close connection with my cars.

I feel like they are "mine" or "me" and if anyone else owned it, it wouldn't be the same vehicle.

Being a mechanic I often yell at my cars/ or other cars, and a lot of times I feel as though it listens. With stuck bolts that finally break free, or when you take a bolt out and the parts all of a sudden decide to start flying at your head.

I've "named" every car I've ever owned...how's that for personifying an object/tool

I still own my 1999 VW Golf
I lived in it for a short while. Literally.
I've been to the border of hell in it. (see previous threads)
I call him Klaus.
I don't really need a car but I admit I do love it/him. Its old, its not going very well but It symbolises so much that has happened in my life that yes I do have a strong attachment to Klaus. (not my first vehicle I might add)

I have a 92 Jeep Cherokee Loredo. I do have feelings for it. I inherited it from my great uncle who kept it in pristine condition. To be honest I wouldn't trade it for any new car unless it was a $100,000 sports car. It's ignition switch broke, and I didn't have enough money to get it fix for a while. It actually brought a few tears to my eyes. This wasn't because I lost my transportation, as I have a back up car. I actually felt like I lost a very close friend.

Dude
In the uk you are what we call a total petrol head so from one petrol head to another I totally understand. I completely adore my Alpha Romeo and it makes me even more of a pimp than I already

Kind regards

Yes, I have emotions for my vehicle also. It's like a friend that has been on many, many adventures with me. It's a little older (1996), but I'll let you in on a secret. Virtually everything but the majority of the frame, cab, and engine has been upgraded. The dirty hippies don't like it, but I just smile when they hate, because I know that their Prius batteries are 50x worse for the environment when they go in a landfill, and also, electricity ain't so green. It's the only possession I own other than musical equipment that I actually care about.

I can totally relate on having feelings for cars.

I am PISSED at mine.


'92 Buick skylark, needs a new water bump and transmission.

Money I don't have.

So, feelings of anger, mostly.

I would have to say that I do have feelings towards my car, I have even named it "Skip", the feelings I have can be expressed by this short video, both the car and myself have had similar experiences together as well...
