RE: I want this car - So Bad.
I don't even know if taste is even teachable but I'll give it a go.

Look at these following two cars.

[Image: 2013-Maserati-GranCabrio-MC-Stradale-01.jpg]

The BMW is Xbillion cooler then the Maserati.
You might like the look of the Maserati, but you're wrong because the Maserati is not cool. For starters it's a convertable, which instantly means it's disgusting. Second, it's a Maserati which tells you one thing; the guy that owns this walks around in jeans and a Hawaiian shirt trying to join in his teenage children conversations they're having with their friends because he's trying to stay relevant with the young people.
The BMW on the other hand tells me that this guy has taste AND money, not just lots of money. But not just that but also that he's modest and is living a good life.

Maserati = desperate mid-life crisis
BMW = Tasteful, serious when it counts but also has fun, cool.


This is what I'm talking about.

You gotta ask "what does this car say about me", and because you're not a 16year old Asian kid it just looks out of place and off-putting.
There is nothing worst then seeing someone driving a car that they just really shouldn't be driving.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.
Yea! KC is a lying douche! he promised me choc-chip cookies and all I got was raisin.. RAISIN!!

So long as the car gets you where you need to go, what does it matter what it is....


Cars can be a lot like women. Physically, they'll all "get you where you need to go", but if given a choice between this:

...and this:

...I doubt many of us would settle for the former.
In short, we're into sexy cars because...well...they're sexy.

This is where people go wrong.
Sex-appeal is only 1 of 3 factors that need to be taken into account.

The 3 factors being:
1) It has to look good
2) It has to be cool
3) You as the driver/owner have to suit the vehicle


People get too caught up in factor 1 and completely negate factor 2 and especially factor 3.

As long as it suits one's own personal taste, I'm not sure these factors are all that relevant. I think my car is sexy as fuck. That's good enough for me. Coffeedrinker

And yes, Free, I'd fuck the shit out of my car. Big Grin

I totally agree with you though! I think that BMW is freakn awesome!

I didn't really think of it the way you said it though. I think you're right in association. I can totally see a dude in jeans and hawaiian Tshirt coming out of that second car. I think that is due to association though. If suddenly we had only modest cool young dudes with taste coming out of those cars for about a decade, I think the association would change and those cars would be considered stylish for the newer generation.

As for the immediate impression I get from both cars, believe it or not, I am with you on that.
Maybe I have a little different take on the first one though. I would consider the BMW there to make me feel like I'm important in a way that maybe I'm on a mission or I'm a secret agent driving a modest car and being friggn bad ass all day long lol

But hey! You don't even know what I look like or what my clothing style is! What if I do fit the style of the Celica?

I'm... not sure what to say... O.o

Except that it's a good thing he doesn't live in Oklahoma.. It's against the law to molest an automobile.

You know, I don't think it's too far-fetch to say that we will eventually have laws in place that allow people to legitimately marry vehicles. Hmmm
