    They look pretty good to me. Simple with a little bit of sass.
  3. The examples seem to be 'street' vehicles as compared to the 'show' vehicles that populated the small mags that used them for circulation numbers.
    I think today is the same, we oh and awh over the pretty cars in the shows (GNRS) but we appreciated the cars that a 'normal' person would own and build. Be it a bit over the bar which drives us to make our own a little bit better.

    Playboy magazine set the tone for increasing circulation by featuring "perfect" girls in its' pages instead of the proverbial "girl next door". Hugh Hefner put it into words in an early interview when he stated that "nobody would pay money to see pictures of average women, they're looking to see the best." Same applies to car mags and cars.

    I really appreciate the subtleness of both of those. For the average guy I think it s'more realistic way to go. The "perfect" cars we see in magazines are usually payed for by big wallets which I've never found just lying around.

    It's fun to date the flashiest girl once or twice, but you want to marry the one that looks great in just a bit of makeup and dress up. Everything works out better that way. So for a keeper or a DD, here are two good choices.
