Happy day after Valentine’s Day everybody. Right about now, as you wipe the mid-morning crust from your eyes, you begin to realize that the person next to you is the exact same person he/she was last week, just with a few hundred dollars worth of food and chocolate in him/her. This reminds me of the relationship that’s worth putting money into: your car.

The cars in my past have been from Japan, Europe and even a few home-grown in the U.S. — My dating past has never been that eclectic. So now I’m paying tribute to my best relationships so far with my top 20 reasons a car is better than a woman. Anyone who wants to add to this (especially women with the counterpoints) please feel free.

Am I jaded? Absolutely.

Hit the jump for the list
