Carstruck

Created by: kateinkorea

Pronunciation: CAR struck

Sentence: What an odd guy Tom is. First he just loved cars the way that a lot of young boys did. But soon it was more like an obsession. He had become completely carstruck.

He walked up to drive-throughs and ordered food, sat in a parking space at a drive-in movie, weaved in and out of traffic making honking noises and even worse...he started showering in his driveway.

Etymology: CAR: and STARSTRUCK: exhibiting a fascination with famous people
