Taking ‘auto-love’ to a new level

The world is a big place and there’s no limit to the sheer battiness of some folks. And when it comes to cars, Edward Smith, takes the cake and the biscuit.

For the 63yo from Washington State in the US has a passion for cars that’s so strong they sexually arouse him. Of the 1000 lovers he claims so far, only one was female, and human. The rest were automobiles. Quite how he gives vent to his libido is something we’d rather not elaborate upon. Suffice to say that he first became smitten with vehicles while still in his teens. At its peak, his obsession had him ‘hooked up’ with a different car every week.

Now, though, he has found true love with a classic Volkswagen Beetle called Vanilla – although he still sometimes ‘plays away’ with a 1973 Opel GT and a Ford Ranger pick-up that he also, erm, ‘owns’. He says: "When I hold Vanilla in my arms there's a powerful energy that comes from her. 

"I would say it is extremely satisfying but at times a little melancholy because I know she cannot talk to me. But overall I know she feels what I feel and it’s intense." He added: "If anything was to happen to her I would be more than heartbroken."

Bears locked in cars

You return to your car after leaving it for a while and all isn’t as it should be. Something we’ve all experienced. But in Truckee, California, drivers face a way-odd menace. A lack of rain in the remote wooded area means food is scarce for its native bear population. Hunger brings them to where people are and can prompt them to drastic action.

Within the last fortnight, three drivers have come back to their cars… to find a bear locked inside If the doors aren’t secured, bears are adept at getting in. Once inside, though, it’s easy for them to trigger the locks as they lumber about. And once this happens they are likely to wreck the car’s interior as they attempt to flee.

Local police report that, thankfully, once freed the bears are much more likely to flee than to attack the drivers. However, they have warned local motorists not to keep food in their cars, adding that the scent of food alone attracts them, even if the item is no longer present.
