Do you think about your car when you're not in it? Do you think about other cars when you're with your car? You might be car obsessed! Don't worry though, you're in good company.

Car obsession is common and manifests by loving talking about cars, design, performance, gadgets and the latest models. Do you feel anxious when someone parks too close to you? Or do you wash your car weekly? You may even have a pet name for your car and have actually read the owner's manual. And heaven forbid someone tries to bring a cherry Slurpee into it! Not that there's anything wrong with it (to quote Seinfeld) but you're in deep with the 'Man loves Machine' feels.

I say lean in, enjoy the obsession because frankly, cars are awesome. Some of life's most unforgettable moments have taken place in cars including the memories of purchasing your motor love.

My first car was a 1967 Buick GS 400. My favorite car is the next one. I have really enjoyed owning and driving my VW Golf, 2004 F250 Pickup, 1973 Jeep CJ-5, Several Jeep Wagoneers and Range Rover Classics.

The Jeepster

I guess I really love the 1970 Jeepster Commando right now. Of all of the cars this one gets the most attention when I drive it. It's cool and fun to drive. My philosophy is that you should enjoy what you drive, and it should serve your needs. Even if the need is for good memories or how you feel when you drive it. Brands like BMW have built a legacy on it!
