Do vehicles have souls?

If you take "soul" to be a psycho-linguistic, socially developed concept which operationalises and explains our experiences of consciousness, emotional experience and endurance of memory, and;

If you accept that consciousness, emotional experience and all other psychological processes are the result of extraordinarily complicated and rapid neural processes which may in fact even include the effects of quantum uncertainty and even superposition, then;

You can posit that vehicles, as machines which rely for their operation upon the complicated and carefully coordinated and tuned interaction of multiple disparate and finely engineered parts, do have a form of crude soul.
