Windows Down System Up

The weather is hot, humid and down right stifling in Halifax right now and it’s this type of weather that brings out a special kind of beauty.  The kind of beauty that checked their sleeves in their mother’s womb, disregarded all hygiene classes in elementary school and developed a rare neurological disorder causing them to think it was awesome to invest all their money in souping up a Neon.

I don’t know what it is but it seems like the majority of people that desire to customize their cars with hideous paint jobs, gigantic spoilers, spinners from Canadian Tire and sound systems that render their trunk useless prefer to do so, on a Dodge Neon.

It’s to the point that if I hear a car pumping music excessively I am confident that that car will be a Neon 8 out of 10 times when I turn to see what all the fuss is about.  In hindsight, it would have been advantageous for Chrysler to focus its restructuring plan last year around building more factory created souped-up Neons. It probably would make the roads safer too because no one would be able to drive much faster then 100 km/hr.

Well I am on the topic of ugly cars, what is up with people buying orange Range Rovers?  Are these people seriously walking into a Range Rover dealership with the intention of buying an $80, 000 car and thinking that orange is their best option?  I don’t know, I don’t get it and it leaves me shaking my head.
