If a variable contains a string that is the same as the name of an object. Can you use that variable in place of the object name?

https://cit111byui.github.io/object.html

Line 58 inside of the showInfo function:

carInfo.textContent = carSelected.getInfo();

Does not work as it is referencing the variable carSelect, but if I replace it with car0 or any of the objects it works fine. But the idea is to show the info of the car that is clicked on.

How can I get this to work?
