Long after you’ve hung up the keys for the day, your mind is still thinking about your prized possession. Hardly surprising when you’ve got your car as your phones wallpaper. Is your car missing you like you miss it? Is it okay out there by itself? Yep, it sure is.

Certain colours, smells or sounds remind you of your car no matter where you are. It could be at the doctors, at uni or even just at home. Even some of the smallest things make you think about your car.
