A survey of over 500 people has found that in the eyes of motorists a car changes its sex as it gets older.

The survey, conducted by the Bosch Car Service network of independent garages in UK found that although a car starts its life as a female, as the years pass by, the majority of drivers see their motor become a man. It also found that men are more likely to identify with their cars, considering them to be the same sex as themselves. Likewise, the majority of women thought their cars were female.

The survey also highlighted significant regional variations on how motorists view their cars. In London, for example, 35% of motorists think their car’s a bloke, compared to 18% who think it’s a woman. However, down in the valleys, the people of Wales think the opposite to be true, with only 15% of motorists viewing their cars as male and over 42% as female. A sensitive lot, 55% of Welsh people also admitted to feeling sad or shedding a tear when getting rid of their wheels. 46% even gave their car a name!
