Other questions about "Passion"

Q: "I have a passion about cars."
I thought this sentence is correct, but there is a native speaker who said that it is incorrect, since it's must used 'for' instead of 'about'. Can you please explain for me? When should I use 'for' and 'about' each other?

does this sound natural?
A: well, passionate is an adjective so you should use "about" in that case. You have probably heard the phrases "I am sad about..." or "I am happy about...". So think about these examples. If you use "for" instead of "about" then the meaning will be different. Using "for" in that case would mean that you are happy or sad because of another person's situation, not yourself. For example, "I'm so happy for her because she is graduating."

As for "passion," it is a noun so you should use "for" in that case.
