Throughout the novel you learn about his past and the reason he became the person he was. In Into the Wild, Jon Krakauer characterizes Christopher McCandless as individualistic and careless.

A symbol of this is when his parents offer to buy him a new car and he says the old Datsun is, “A great car, i don’t want a new car.” This proves Chris’ values having a car rather than the car itself.
