    I actually saw this on BBC America a few weeks ago. I meant to email someone here, but I figured you guys would know about it anyway.

    As you will see on the following installments, these two guys are veeeery messed up. They have not/cannot lead normal lives.

    Disturbing, but, like the proverbial train wreck, I couldn’t stop watching.

    So, this guy in Washington is into autoeroticism.

    As for Metro-sexuality, anyone who manages to have sex in either an Austin Metro or a Geo/Chevy Metro must be some impressive combination of limber and persuasive….

    It’s not about having sex in the Metro . . .

    I nearly spit my lunch out at the end of part one. I loved “Airwolf” as a kid but not that much!

    Here’s a much funnier, short (60 sec) take on this popular subject:

    The Mercury Mistress.

    Well…you are on the right road…just smooth it a bit and add flavor for taste.

    I watched this on Youtube last night…the older guy has been in another similar documentary about mechaphilia. At least the young guy admits he’s crazy…the Lion of Yelm (the name of the older guy in another subculture he belongs to) just dives into it face first with it all.

    this HAS to be a joke…

    seriously.

    I think the BBC just had one pulled over on them.

    Weird … could have sworn I saw a tear roll out of Herbie the Love Bug’s headlamp.

    The only time I’ve whipped it out for a car was to pee out a fire on my old Ford.

    It is called objectophilia and/or mechaphilia, and I wish I had never heard of it. Thanks for nothing Boston Legal !

    I gave it 60 seconds, then stopped it before anything truly offensive (or mildly interesting) appeared on my screen.

    I’ll pass, thanks anyway.

    Now THAT is funny; hope you didn’t get singed! Tell us, did it put out the fire?

    Yelm WA has more whackos per acre than just about any other spot on the planet.

    Yelm makes Eugene, Oregon look normal by comparison.

    The only reason I don’t have sex with my cars is because they aren’t attractive.

    I have standards.

    PJ, debunked. The passion clearly is still there.

    The phrase “I love my car” now has a new, creepy meaning to me. Thanks.

    As a fellow Washintonian transplanted from NY there are different people here. It does something to yorr DNA. I actaully hiked with my friends when I got here!

    As fot loving a car…I mean the musty smell of leather on my TR reminded me of my dad because his TR had the same small (You can never get the top up fast enough if it rains) I saw the BBC thing and I swear I thought it was a spoof.

    Besides a white VW?

    I went over to YouTube and watched the complete program. The interesting part is when the BBC crew’s Ford SUV break down.

    The BBC rented a new Ford SUV, and the tranny completely self destructs. They film it on the side of the road trying to figure out what is wrong. They put it in gear and all your hear is trashing of metal. Terrible, terrible sound.

    OK folks, I apologize for going a bit overboard in “My Car Is My Lover”.
    It was a lot of fun to take the trip to Pomona and over fifty hours of
    video was edited to 45 minutes. I usually behave myself at car shows
    and in the public. Despite all that I really do love certain cars and aircraft.
    The documentary actually forced me to look at my life. I just love hugging
    and kissing beautiful machines. Sorry for offending anyone.
