Why Do We Like Classic And Exotic Cars So Much?

by Mike -

When someone asked Willie Nelson why he took up the guitar and joined a band he replied "to get the girls".

Triumph TR6

I wanted to be this guy below with the Triumph Spitfire so I bought a TR6, above.

Is there some of this Willie Nelson motivation behind why men love cars so much?

Is there a correlation between the MG Midget ad below on the beach in 1970 and me with my MG Midget on the beach above in 1977? I am not sure why I am in front of the trash cans.

My Porsche 911 on a lake in Colorado above and a beautiful lady with the 911 below.

The same lady a few years later is sitting in my Alfa Romeo Spider below.

I could not afford either one of these cars below but I wanted them.

  1. I think our passion for these cars is contagious. Even women who aren't into cars fall under the spell of our excitement and they get the message. Everyone needs passion!

  2. I remember the TR6, the truck in the garage and the guy in the picture. What a memory that is! Gets my heart racing.

  3. Stephen,

    I like your thinking. Passion for cars and women certainly go together.

  4. Anonymous,

    Yeah the TR6 gets my heart racing too. The truck peeking out of the garage is my dad's 1940 GMC which I helped him restore.
