Anyone who knows me for more than about 2 seconds understands that I am car nut and completely insane about my car. I've been thinking a lot about the "insanity" lately. I've had her for a year now and the passion and interest has not gone away or even lessened.
So I ask, "What is it? What about this car has my attention so captivated?"
Quite simply, she keeps me present in the moment.
I don't spend most of my time thinking about the next thing that needs to be done when I'm driving. I've noticed this has moved over into other parts of my life. I now take time (weather permitting) to sit out in the back yard and enjoy watching my dogs play. I enjoy spending time with friends and focus on the time with my friends.
I feel almost like I needed to learn the skill of being present in my own life, but it was so worth the effort!
And just in case you have stumbled on my blog and have not seen her:

Totally agree… one year into ownership of mine, and still loving it every time I get into it.
I love the color of this car. It’s so unique! Maroon just screams “I am different” to the other cars. I think it suits your personality.
Well, I’m guessing it’s probably because your car is so fun to drive! Your Camaro is a collector’s item that still bears the trademark design of the original when it hit the road in 1967. It’s a good thing they came up with a new version. It relived the childhood memories of those who were able to see the car for the first time. Anyway, the color maroon is a great color for your car. I like how it looks so nasty and wicked, even though it’s just parked there. You get the sense that it would suddenly burn rubber and run off screeching into the highway!
