A Love Letter To Our Cars

LaFontaine Automotive Group —  February 13, 2014 — 2 Comments

Valentine’s Day. Filled with kisses, chocolates, and enough flowers to build your own Rose Bowl Parade Float – this is also the perfect day to proclaim your love for someone to the world…..via secret letter, of course.

Yes, love letters are a staple of the holiday, ranging from “lift-me-off-my-feet-with-your-way-of-words” to “do-they-give-participation-awards-for-these?”


While that secret crush of yours might be a bit daunting to write to, why not proclaim your love to the one that constantly keeps you safe, secure, and stylish: your car?

Here’s an example of one such document of car-crossed drivers:

My Dearest Car,

We’ve been driving together for a while now and, well, I think now’s a good time to let you in on something.

You see, when I hit your gas pedal and hear your engine roar defiantly, I let loose a high-pitched giggle.

Flipping through radio stations, letting the bass notes of your premium audio system fill my ears…I gotta say, it creates this tingling in my chest. That tingling has been hidden away ever since I got you; no more.

I was never one to believe in ‘love at first sight’ until I laid my eyes on you.

You were sitting perched in between your brothers and sisters on the lot. There was something about your shine, about the gleaming sun bouncing off your sleek grille that made my jaw drop and my mind think “that’s the one.”

Can’t you see what I’m trying to tell you?

I love you. I really love you.

I love the way you keep me wrapped in your arms with your intricate safety technologies. I love when we go on a drive and you don’t ask me for much gas. I love how you keep me warm and cozy on even the coldest morning.

These things might not seem like a big deal to you, but to me, they matter. You mean the world to me my sweet, sweet car.

This probably seems silly but, I’m glad we met and I honestly can’t get by without you.

Here’s to another wonderful year of memories on the road!

Whether it’s an Altima, Jetta, Malibu or Regal, your car loves you. This month, show some back!

  1. While “love” might be putting it a little more strongly than I’d like, my 1993 Cadillac Allanté certainly stirs emotion. (Rather fancied the silver one you all had at your Saline location for a while last year as well.) Here’s a photo of mine at the 2013 Rolling Sculpture Car Show in Ann Arbor:
