看了laoxianggg的解释,我又看了看下文,才知道all over the map 确实应该是“各有喜好”的意思!因为紧接着,作者又谈到了其它形式的车。
请诸位原谅,一开始我没有把更多的内容列出来,我以为与下文没什么关系了。因为我根本没有懂all over the map 是什么意思。
下面是整段的内容:

There's the boy racer crowd that favors high speed small cars they've driven in video games. The latest craze is for  "donks", grandpa cars from the 1970s that are put on huge 28-inch wheels known as donkey tires.

All over the map 是一种形容,真正 all over the map 是 the line and the color.
