    have x having

    Hello, it,s Monica. Could you be so kind and explain to me when I use have and having? Ex. what,s the difference between I,m having a car x I have a car. What interestes me is the point of view of the speaker when they say 1 or 2 sentence.

    You can't use continuous tense to denote possession of an object, the possession of an object is static until you no longer possess it. You can, however, be "having a good time" or "having a wonderful holiday" these express a continuing period of time.
