Why Owning A Classic Car Is Like Dating

When you dive into the world of classic cars, you’re in it for the long haul. Once you see that car you’ve dreamt about all your life, it’s love at first sight. Assuming you haven’t royally screwed anything up, you can let the world know about your new partner in crime.  There’s going to be ups and downs, but you’ll be able to work through it with a little determination. With that being said, being in a relationship and owning a classic car have quite a lot in common.


1. Attention

They both require a lot of time and attention- you don’t want an unhappy car, right? Anniversaries are like oil changes, you forget one and something (or someone) is going to blow up.

2. Hungry

One snacks on gas and oil, the other can’t ever make up their mind on where to eat. Needless to say, you’ll be spending a lot of time feeding one (or both) of them.

3. RIP wallet

What does a diamond ring and a set of aluminum cylinder heads have in common? They’re shiny, expensive, and make someone very happy. But seriously, can you really put a value on happiness?

4. Make no sense

What does your car not starting and an emotional wreck have in common? Who knows, but it’s probably your fault. (Refer to number 1?)

5. Unconditional love

No matter what happens, you’re not going to give up on each other. Yes, the car is an inanimate object with no actual emotional capabilities. But like a relationship, the happiness you gain is directly correlated with the effort you put in. Want a great running classic car? Take care of her. Does something seem wrong? Investigate. Don’t despair because times are tough, take a breather and work it out.



Can’t seem to find the one? No need to fret, good things come to those who wait.
