dunno, same as any other addiction...

see a car...oooh, that looks neat....

buy one, drive for few weeks, figure out not THAT cool, sell it...

not many folks nowadays fix cars, they don't know how, or don't have tools.

just a way to pay the bills,
buy cheap cars that are barely running, fix up a few things,
sell it as a reliable car.

just a hobby?
