Some cars are just so tainted by the kind of people who buys them that even as it evolves, it’ll never be able to lose that imagery baggage that it comes with.

I can safely say that back when I was a kid, most of my money came from all the duit rayas and with it, I went buying car magazines if not junk food (yeah, I was a chubby kid back then) and my elder brother bought comics from DC and Marvel. Sometimes from Dark Horse. Then, I make more money »

Let me start with a rant. I really don’t get it why people love big vehicles. It’s just so cumbersome to drive!
