Top 10 Gifts For Car Lovers


Car Lovers Syndrome (CLS) impacts millions of Americans each year, and the condition makes holidays and birthdays especially difficult for friends and family members of those with CLS.

Do You Have Car Lovers Syndrome (CLS)?

Five common symptoms of CLS include:

  1. Going into your garage at all hours of the day and night to look at your car;
  2. Obsessively washing and dusting your car;
  3. Experiencing a sense of withdrawal and panic if you have not been in the presence of your car for over 6 hours;
  4. Spending more time with your car than your significant other or spouse;
  5. Harboring feelings of superiority when you see all the other people driving cars that are not as nice as yours.

If you or someone you know is trying to buy a gift for someone with CLS, please know that you are not alone. We’re here to help you with this Top-10 Gifts for Car Lovers guide. (Do not consult your physician before purchasing.)
