A woman vs Cars. Hmm, I will go with option 1! But if I had each on separate hands, I would bring them together

No second thoughts, true love for me.

Have seen enough rich people with no love, have seen enough non-car owners life filled with love. When I am on my deathbed, I definitely will not be thinking of my car (well... may be for a very short time), but not as much as true love and family.

When I'd voted in 2008, I'd ticked the 'love' option. I must mention I was more of a boy then. The time span & harsh realities that I faced between that vote and this post have worked a perfect defogging act on my thought process, and must I say that I'm slowly inclining towards those beautifully made inanimate machines which ooze character and now hold that special place in my heart!!

And as far as 'true love' goes, no thing or body would love you more or even come close to the affection your pet dog showers upon you. Bhpians with a dog/s at home must reciprocate this fact; so pure, so natural and so unadulterated that one just can't question it!!

P.S. Dante and I belong to the same clan

Talking

If the choice would have been between any girl and a car...then it would have to be the car all the way, because once u have a great car girls come easy.

But dippy has given a choice of a car and true love, i'll be stupid if i choose a car over the love of my life. But sometimes one wants to be well....STUPID!

Love first. Voted for 2nd option.

If I choose the car , I am outright loosing my love and chances are close to zero for comeback.

On the other hand if I choose love , chances are bright that I can get the car again after some time with help of my love.

So , the target would be to acquire both and choosing love increases that probability of having both.

@ worldcrawler : Dude, no offence meant in anyway, but by the looks of it, seems like someone's trying to take control over the choices you make!!
Hope you realize what's happening before something worse kicks in.

I have to agree that given a choice i will pick up my dream car. Its not that i dont believe in love its just that finding true love is difficult and many a times we realise it a bit late that we have ended up with someone whos closer to being a friend than a true love. On the other hand you dont face the same problem with your car as Indian government makes sure that you get the same car as entered in your RC book.

I'll go with the girl! Car can be bought anytime and it can wait but When I have the choice of my dream girl or Dream car, it's my dream girl all the way!

Cheers!

A classic question. Well, I'd pick the car.

Quite simply, cars were my first love even before girls, so picking the car would give me true happiness. Btw my girl also understands this

I'd choose a car over the love, cause all the chicks in the world will fall for you if your seen with a ferrari or a lambo so its kind of a win-win situation then.

Its always love first! True love that translates into passion can achieve anything, leave about owing a dream car.

The woman i love. My dream car will keep changing as i keep getting older. It used to be the old ferrari's when i was younger..the palio when i learnt how to drive, and i'd love an Aston Martin today, but there's only 1 lady i wanna spend my life with. I'd choose my love.

Note from Mod : Old thread that's been discussed enough. Closing
