Anyone else feel like this?
So I've been thinking about my motivations of having a car and I sorta realized that it is an outlet of personal space. I get excited about driving (except for the gas prices of today), because I get to move and I get my own space to play my own music and adjust my own comfort and further customizing it if I wanted to. As much as I bash ricers and donkers, maybe its the same thing for them. Do you guys feel the same? Is it a hobby to want to figure out how to fix or mode cars, or is it an extension of our personal space? Is it something thats only unique to Americans because we can theoretically spend hours on end on the road? Is it dying out because of the appliance-ification of cars where cars are becoming more and more proprietary in many aspects?
