    himself or itself ?

    choose
    It is the manger's car........... . I cannot miss it.
    himself
    itself

    I found it in an Egyptian grammar book written by an Egyptian ,not native.

    I can't find any sense in both choices.
    What about you?

    Thanks in advance.

    Neither of them make a particulary good sentence. "Himself" is certainly incorrect. The emphasis would refer to the car, not the manager. I can only imagine that if perhaps the person had seen the car unexpectedly, he might exclaim something like that:

    "Wow. What a shock! It's the manager's car itself! You can't miss it!"
