Looks like Detroit and Japan have their work cut out for them. When I asked what drives you guys to buy a car – exterior styling, interior comfort, power, fuel economy or safety – I figured either how the car looked or how comfortable it was inside would be the top choice. But there were no clear winners. It was pretty much a three-way tie for first between those two and fuel economy, with “Pure horsepower” just a few percentage points behind. As for “Safety”? Well, apparently that’s not as big a concern. (Sorry Volvo.)
So, if the Big Three and the Japanese automakers want a sure-fire winner, they need to design us a hot looking car, throw a lot toys inside, add great comfort, and make sure it gets high milage – yet has some balls when we need it. That shouldn’t be too hard. Should it?
For this week’s poll: my buddies and I have been arguing over whether or not the long trend of women getting tattoos – with more and more chicks opting for full arm tattoos, rather than just the tramp stamp on their lower back – is sexy, or just bad. So what I want to know is: Do you like a lady with a little ink, or if you like your women untouched by the needle? Or, if a little color is too much, do piercings do it for you – some extra bling on her naughty bits? As always, the poll box is on the right.
