Car Obsessions

Most car obsessions are historically thought of as between a man and a very fast car. I’m here to break the mold. My name is Bethany, and I am obsessed with my 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit.  My affectionate name for him is Thumper, and we first met in 2008. What made me first fall in love with Thumper was not his four cylinders, but the way I felt like he took care of me. It was the first time my car let me know how many miles I had untill I found myself on the side of the road with no gas, and my college self appreciated that more than words can describe. Not to mention Thumper’s gas mileage, getting thirty miles to the gallon is a big help when gas peaked above $4 a gallon.  The true test of our relationship was the winter when I returned from Asia, and found myself stuck in the icepocalypse for five hours. We made it to Indianapolis in one piece, and I am forever grateful for Thumper’s perseverance. I doubt Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson would even look twice at the car, but Thumper and I have a special bond that I will continue to brag about.

I know I’m not alone with my obsession, as I talked to many proud car owners at IU Health North Hospital Carmel Artomobilia. Each had a unique story and countless memories attached to their gorgeous vehicles. I hope you enjoyed the afternoon as much as I did! Below are some photos of the day. Enjoy!
