Getting rid of a car isn’t always as simple as selling it and picking out a new one.
If you’re one of those people who gave your car a name, assigned it a gender, or spoke about it in human-like phrases, you know what I’m talking about.
At some point, you’ve probably gone through the pain of letting go of your beloved car and replacing it with someone new.
Why don’t we feel the same way about throwing out a busted television or phone?
The emotional attachment people feel for their cars is interesting. Just talking about ones that we’ve had suddenly all of the memories you had in that car come rolling back. The nostalgia hits you straight in the face.
A car can become a significant emotional investment – it’s there with you for major milestones in your lives like weddings, new babies and graduations and it’s literally the ‘vehicle’ that makes being physically present in these moments possible.’’
What’s your favorite car you’ve ever owned and why?
