Put A Little Love In Your Car

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Classic cars really get their owners’ engines revving, if a new poll of car enthusiasts is any indication.

According to the “Love in the Fast Lane” survey by Hagerty Insurance, a whopping 60 percent of vintage gearheads admit they spent more money on their car last year than they did on their significant other.

Not only that, but 62 percent talk to their four-wheeled “baby” on a regular basis.

  • 42 percent have given their classic auto a name.

  • 29 percent bought a Valentine’s Day gift for their wheels last year, and, of those, 57 percent shucked out more than $250 on the presents.

  • Finally, 259 of the classic car owners say their car reminds them of Steve McQueen, 154 see similarities between their ride and James Dean and 89 think their car looks like Marilyn Monroe.
