No I don't, not ever. They are just a distraction that I can walk away from in an instant. I will say that I enjoy what the cars bring me with respect to meeting great people, and along the way developing skills lost on most everyone my age.
Other than that? Nope. I have a real life where I serve my country, have an amazing career and am currently building a family - those things will be my legacy; and what I will live and die for.
My car brings me an escape from my daily worries about life and family. While i work on my car nothing else bothers me.
So i would say my car helps me live by helping me release my stress that would other wise build up and make me a miserable ****.
And yes this POS sometimes adds to the stress, when that i happens it ends up parked and forgotten for a few days.
