Lovin' My Car

Author(s): Libby Edelman

Automotive & Transport

After many years spent in cars with her husband, Sam, son Jesse, with their constant banter about cars- the exciting new models on the market, the finer details of engines and their sizes, 'round and 'round about tires, wheels, and gears, the know-how and questions about maintenance and repairs, and so on, Libby Edelman would find herself wondering--why do my men love their cars so? Before long, she would find herself glancing at the magazines at the supermarket to pass the time--and right there under her nose, on the cover of National Enquirer, Edelman found a story about a woman who loved her car so much that she was buried with it! The impact of that story inspired her to set out on a journey to find other women who were just as obsessive about their cars and trucks. Quickly Edelman discovered car and truck women everywhere- Laura and her prize-winning, 1958 Corvette; Maggie's '61 Classic Rambler Wagon named "Bessie"; Natalie's 4-wheel drive 1982 "hi-lux" Toyota pick-up truck; Stella's collection of "junker" school buses that she races on weekends; a black convertible '69 Cadillac Coup Deville owned by Nancy who jams on her guitar while perched on the trunk; and so many more! From the West Coast to the East Coast, Edelman found a community of women from all walks of life who share an automotive love. Some cars are fancy, some quirky, and most are everyday cars. All have proud women owners who share their stories of what their cars and trucks mean to them. These cars are the loves of their lives--an extended family member. They coddle them, talk to them, name them, and (as if anyone could resist) race them.
