Why do we anthropomorphize our cars? — 2 Comments

  1. I love cars. I somehow see them as an extension of my self… I’ve been working on cars since I was 5 years old. When I met Vic Edelbrock, I thanked him for helping my Small Block Chevy engine breathe so well… to me, when they’re running and driving around, my cars are a sort of lifeform…I talk to them, I think they answer me with the cool way they ride just to please me.
    My 64 Impala Convertible, my 57 Chevy, my 61 Chevy C10 truck, well, they’re my pals…I love just ’em all!

    • Very well and nicely said! Cars do seem to embody our taste and sense of style, so by that token they are an extension of ourselves. My cars (’86 Dodge Aries K, ’01 Ford Taurus SES, ’08 Honda Accord EX-L) always felt like friends to me even though they weren’t classic. But who knows? Maybe in another 30 years they may be!
