How come you're only thinking about cars? Is there nothing but engines, cars and bikes in your brain? How single minded can you get?
If you read this post, I guess you heard these questions over and over again while you've asked yourself another related question.
What's so hard for others to understand?
You're just exploring the world and the society through your passion. Which is reasonable because passion keeps you wide awake and curious. When exploring different angles of the 360 deg global car and bike community you learn about technology, people, industry and industrial history. Meanwhile others find comfort in the sofa watching Netflix while doing nothing.
Nonetheless, they are correct. We're into engines, cars and bikes 24/7 and we've been there for decades and we'll be there forever and ever. Simple as that.
