We all heard about people talking that they don’t care what car they are driving, as long as they are getting to their destinations. Those people are liars. They might be driving clunker cars all of their lives and don’t know any other options. If you are driving your car in town, you might as well get people’s heads to turn your way when you are driving these cars.
