I saw something that almost turned my stomach today. I had seen it before, but today was almost more than I could take.
What is up with Detroit and Tokyo or Nagasaki or wherever the Japanese make their decisions on what the color combinations will be for their cars? Who had the bright idea that a Forest Green car would look good with a Tan convertible top? I'll betcha it was a GUY.
Now I know that some of you are gonna try and tell me that said guy put it out there for marketing to do a consumer study. Since GUYS buy more Sports cars than women and gay men, probably combined, therein lies the problem. Forest Green and tan do NOT match. They just don't. And anyone with a smidge of style, like a WOMAN or a GAY man knows that! The proper color convertible top and interior for a Forest green car is, take your pick: Forest green; Black, Pearl green.
I do NOT want to hear you whiney Wankers sayin', "It's too hooot here to have a dark top." OR "A Pearl green top will just show all the dirt and dust." First, that's what air conditioning is for, to keep you cool when you absolutely, positively HAVE to have the top up, you poor thing. And as for the second whine, I have three words: Car Wash and Protectant.
Anyone with any sense of aesthetics knows I'm spot on with this one. Detroit, I'm waiting for an e-mail. But I don't come cheap!
My next rant concerns the H3 yesterday in the Mall parking lot. First of all, let's face facts. The H3 is nothing more than an overpriced Ford Explorer or Suburban, OK? It just has that Hummer body style and the Hummer 'badge'. But if you're gonna spend the bucks to buy a Hummer, the least you can do is drive it with a little bit of pride. I am referring to the wussy way you swerved around every speed bump in the parking lot. PUHLEEZE!
I used to drive a Ford Ranger and I wasn't afraid of speed bumps. Heck, I laughed at speed bumps because I knew I had enough clearance to amke it over them without draggin' any part of my undercarriage. If I could do it in a Ranger, you could do it in a HUMMER, you big Baby. If you were thinkin' about your front end alignment, then I don't EVEN feel sorry for you. If a Hummer's alignment can't survive a speed bump, you're even stupider than you drive for paying that much money for an overpriced POS!
