At the supermarket on Saturday I picked a up a copy of Autocar magazine and was casually flicking through the articles when I came across a multi-page spread relating to an auction of aging American Muscle Cars. I have to object to this sort of thing in the strongest possible terms.
On being assaulted with the vision of a Hemi Orange 69 Charger with tweaked crate motor I began to drool. The situation was in no way resolved by the gratuitous inclusion of a picture of an early Firebird 455 SD and significantly worsened by the mention of an immaculate Plymouth Road Runner and a 1970 Pontiac GTO - all for the price of a well specified Golf.
This sort of gratuitous automotive titillation should not be allowed without due warning – at least on the internet, I know what I’m getting into and can search for it on purpose, but to be caught unawares while expecting to read about the latest eco tin box – well, it’s just plain irresponsible.
For goodness sake, be more careful about what you print in there.
