Not at all.  After enjoying one of the best cars (for its day) ever built, 
you're now allowing someone else that experience.  It's not like you scrapped 
it, or broke it for parts.
Back in the early 1970s, a fertiliser company called Fisons ran the first nude 
advert in a UK paper - a young lady called Viv Nieves pictured in profile, 
brushing her hair.  It was a very nice (full page) picture, in The Times.
One of the car manufacturers announced that they would do the same, but with a 
full frontal nude.  A couple of weeks later, they did - a baby girl sitting 
upright with her legs crossed in front of her.  And underneath the caption:
   "Would you believe she takes twice as much room in a car as an adult?"
