What's Your Car Sign? Let Windsor Help You Find Your Driving Dream Valentine...

It is a well documented phenomenon that we not only attach emotionally to our cars, but that at times we personify them to the point that our interaction mirrors that of a human relationship. We name our cars, we say they have the flu when they break down, and that we have broken up with them when we trade them in for a new model! Much too has been written about how people purchase cars to match their personality. So to save you those pangs of heartache on frosty mornings and long goodbyes at the showroom this Valentine's Day, Windsor has found a fun way to help you to choose your perfect match!
