And you Christopher also prove MY point. You insist that people bought cars to
be noticed and for people to know they arrived.

And all I'm contending is that if that is the reason people buy (or bought) a car, then they have some serious self-image issues going on in their life. In many instances they are insecure within themselves and have to let people think they are somebody because they have a new or fancy car.

I don't need to be around people like that. When I've bought cars, I've done so because I like them, but NEVER to try impress others or show that I'm better than they are.

Sadly, I've known many folks who have to try and impress others with what they have or own, rather than just being themselves and not a guy who says, "Here I am, look at the fancy, prettier, and bigger car I have than you".

I fully realize the '59 Cadillac was a popular car. I'm only saying that if it is bought to "show off" that one is better or more successful than someone else, it's the WRONG reason.

This is the point that you fail to see in our discussion. Nothing wrong with that though, we both are entitled to our respective perspectives.

One final thing Christopher, I'm certainly entitled to like or hate the styling of any car and I have the right to express it. Same as you and everyone else does.
