Do you still remember your first great love? I’m sure you do. One never forgets his or her highschool sweetheart; the first secret meetings, school parties, the first kiss… Those were the days, but if you meet that one special person again after many years, it is yet to be seen if this person is still as nice and beautiful as how he or she lived in your memory. Both your lives have changed considerably since then. New partners come along, then marriage (or not) and maybe a bunch of children as well. Sometimes it is best to leave your romantic childhood memories as they were, because not every rendez vous will feel good. For me, this story doesn’t count when it comes to cars.
A car is and will always be ‘just’ an object, a construction of various metals, plastics, rubber and glass. But for some – and I’m sure I am not telling you anything new – it is possible to fall in love with such an object. And the best thing about cars is that your automotive highschool sweetheart never changes.
