They literally feel, see and talk about their cars like people sexually attracted to other human beings; apparently they even use the same area of their brain in the process. It is in a way better than men who seem to forget that women are not objects, but it becomes scary when these men seem to consider cars as more than objects of desire, but rather as living and feeling entities…
