Eye Pollution

A quick message to the guy who was driving in front of me on the way to work, the one in the black Ford 500 with huge chrome wheels, chrome trim, and a vinyl fake convertible roof:

Your car is effing ugly.

The 500 is not a very sexy car, but it does have clean, modern lines, albeit borrowed from VW's previous generation.

Vinyl roofs on any post-1970's car should be a ticketable offense. And car bras, too, especially when people put them on good looking cars.

When you see cars like that you should be able to pull them over and ticket them for bad taste

Do you mean that vinyl fake convertible roofs are a factory option or is this an aftermarket job? Yikes - I thought they were tacky 25 or 30 years ago.

Best story about vinyl roofs. In southern Ontario there is a zoo called African Lion Safari - it's the kind of zoo where the animals roam and people drive through in either their own cars or special buses. A good friend saw first hand that the monkeys took great pleasure in ripping the vinyl roofs off such cars - the zoo even warns of such an event and isn't responsible. It appears the monkeys have better taste than the owners of those abominations.
