It didn't took me even a split second to decide. Car's had always been my first love. Well about the woman......errr I just can say that I had loved and lost in it.

Quite my sentiments. I almost tossed a coin to decide. Ultimately, I voted for my woman, btw.

I'd say - go for the car. If the girl was so insecure about my car, then I'd rather have my car.

Like NC said, she would probably demand first preference. And anyways, one cant force another person - she'll come along when the time comes. Mean while, let me enjoy with one who'll be faithful, no matter what.

Btw, the question was the car you love or the one you love. No mention if she loves you too! So safer with the car.

I guess you have to choose only one & you will not get the other in your life time (thats the one which you have not opted).

Even if I had given a choice between my pet dog and car, I would choose pet dog (Mods, dont ban me pls) (after all car is a machine)

Oops! now only Iam noticed that I already voted in this poll. Oh god,where did I polled my vote. Iam sure it should be the second option.

i dint vote for this poll because to compare, you should have something equivalent/near equivalent which is not the case here. why is that Dippy?

PS: @ Dippy ,why compare a car with GF/BF/spouse alone and not with anyone else? and i think i can narrow it down to cars VS girls(since that is what is predominantly discussed here). i seriously wanna know why the choice is between the only two... you hearing?

@ Dippy, hope i dont get a reply like... because a car is she and you guys drive it, you love your car so much that you fell in love with it which is equivalent to falling in love with a girl etc etc. for my question "why GF/BF/spouse is chosen for a comparison with a car?"
dont you guys feel that the discussion is inclined towards car VS girl than car VS love?

@ Rekha...in dippy's defense, i'm sure he meant girl!!

@ Dippy...Say sorry fast or PLAY DEAD mate.

I am sure every BHPian who voted love is already in love or a relationship they can't get out off!! And are waiting for Dippy's answer to Rekha's question with the biggest smirk on their face!! haahhahahhahahhahahha

P.S: I voted for love (As in my wife to be; but there are times where i'd go the other way!!!) This would be one of them!!
