Almost everything is part of someone's identity. But I would venture for most people on this forum, they have a car but don't identify with a car brand.

It used to be of course that you were a Ford man or a Chrysler man. But nowadays it's become much rarer.

I agree that it's natural, but I think that the targets for identification shift over time and I don't think it's random.
