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”.

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?

    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.
