I have always thought of cars as unique in that each model is an individual design, yet also a mass-produced object as well. They occupy a space almost between industry and art. Perhaps there is another intersection in the car world, unique to automobiles.
I just have to say that this line really stuck with me:
"The second reason may actually be the more likely motivator, as for many people, their car isn't just a means of transport, it's the only really personal space you have. Cars are unique that way, among all the non-dwelling things we own. It's one of the only things we have that's both an object and a location. Nothing else really comes close."
Reading that was one of those, "so brilliant yet simple" moments.
We're struggling to think of anything else that is both an object and a location. Reader Roberto thinks motels qualify, but what do you think?
