      Cars are a invention and a representation of a specific time. When I write songs with cars in it, specifically I use models from the Malaise Era. An artist that knows and likes cars, not because they look good but because he knows how it works? Yes! Presenting to you... me! I had a mechanic course when I was 17, graduated, but I didn't forgot everything. But, famous people like sports players, actors and actresses, politicians, gov. employees, senators, presidents, show presenters and models... these people just want a luxury sports car to be comfortable and to impress other people around them. And they'll always have a different car in the next semester of the year, so that's why I care about putting the Malaise Era boats in my art. Things people more-or-less loved in the past but not anymore. I vowed to never die for a car, but I'd like to have a dark blue late 1980s Monte Carlo SS, just for fun and living. I can be happy with a used model under $4000 dollars, with proper care.

            This hurts as I've seen it before, but not with cars. I skateboard in summer to keep in shape and I've seen these types of people close off skateparks because people complained about them doing some showing up to do some shoot and thought nothing of it other than the fact they were standing in the middle of a skatepark. which is a high traffic area where everyone was going through and it just so happened to be the most busy skatepark in the city on a Saturday a week after kids went on summer break. So they got in contact with the city then rented out for the following Saturday for 6 hours, much like how shops can have events. They were the most clueless stuck up assholes I've come across ever, that's saying alot as I go to big ski resorts all the time. Lol

                                      You don’t pick a car to match your handbag. You pick a handbag to match your car! Honestly! Some people! Should’ve gone with my car. Not only is it red, but so is the interior! I had a “handbag” that matched. I had gloves that matched. I even had LIPSTICK that matched! ...don’t remember the brand though. “Maybe it’s Maybelline.” All I know is, “this can be red.”

                                      P.S. - My favorite color is...

Every fan of anything at some point wonders how the people in charge can be so completely clueless about the thing they love. The truth of the matter is the people in charge simply don't care. They see a product they can sell and people with money that will buy it. And ultimately they don't care if you like where they take the product as long as you keep buying. It is only when you stop that they take notice and start to look at where they went off the rails. But the damage is already done.
