It varies from person to person about how they think in this perspective. I love my cars and have a great affection for them, and yes I would agree to your one point that they are pieces of metal and shouldn't be considered as a person.
But still as I said before it varies from person to person.
There are many car enthusiasts on PakWheels who love their car and treat them like a family member be it a Mehran or a 7 series!
Just because someone doesn't love their cars doesn't mean that others should stop loving their cars or stop caring for them. It means they don't know the true value of Hard-earned money!
Anyways, thanks for your not so useful reply.
