For week seven of the Student Blogging Challenge we could write about anything we wanted. So I thought I explained why I like cars and why all the other crazy people like me do. I think one of the main reasons I like cars is because I’m an artist, a designer and I love mechanics. In my opinion a good car is the epitome of those things, it’s the ultimate combination of art and engineering.
I’ve always liked vehicles and machines but I think the first time I really noticed cars was a couple years ago when my dad showed me this video of a McLaren P1 lapping the Nurburgring. There is something about seeing something so beautiful, going so fast and doing something so dangerous that just triggered something inside me, I don’t know what but it lead to a crazy obsession.
This isn’t the exact video my dad showed me but it’s very close:
Trying to explain an obsession is really hard especially when that obsession is something as complicated as cars but I found this video that I think explains it quite well:
Hopefully this post helps you understand a little more about why some people like cars so much.
Comment your favourite cars. My favourite cars are probably the McLaren P1, then the Datsun 240z and then the Subaru 22B or Toyota mk 4 Supra.
