|Most of my friends know that if given the choice, I would much rather drive than be driven. I first expressed an interest in cars at eighteen months of age, although there is some suggestion that the interest started earlier, this was just the earliest I could express it. From that time on, the greatest thing missing in my life was the inability to drive a car myself, until the day finally came when I could legally sit behind the wheel. Since then, driving has become an integral part of my way of life, and yet for me cars are still so much more than just transport. They are almost living, and invite an emotional response in me that is unlike anything else.
