Why do we love cars so much?

I know why I love cars—because growing up my dad always took the family to car shows and it’s just a part of my upbringing. I’m a sucker for nostalgia and nothing is more nostalgic than classic cars, for many reasons.

But why, as a culture, do we love cars so much? Today is Valentine’s Day, 2018, and what better day than today to think on this a little, and to show your car some love?

What’s with our love of cars

Cars offer us something that, well, nothing else can in the same way: the freedom of transportation that we are in control of. When we drive, we’re in control of where we go and how we get there. This isn’t something that was available to us back in the day.

I mean, as children we were reliant on the adults in our lives to take us places. But now we’re the adults. We’re in charge.

We also cannot help but marvel at the mechanics behind everything—from the motor to the design that enables cars to move efficiently, smoothly, and without noise, so we can enjoy the ride.

Some people love the meditative nature of driving in or fixing cars, or they just love bonding with like-minded people over their passion. At the end of the day, everyone has their own reasons, and they’re all the right reason.
