Some people have their tastes on the bizzare side -- well, let me make it 
"most people." Personally, I like the Q-car concept -- but most people like 
the other way around, it seems. I've seen some weird taste being exercised 
from Honda Accords to Mazda Miatas. They're hilarious to see and watch! 
-- and sometimes it seems they're going to fall apart when they're trying 
to turn a corner.

I have Q'ed/modified my little Toyota. From the outside, it looks like 
any other I4 Camry -- even fooled the service department people 
at local Toyota dealer! But under that bonnet, there's a slightly 
modified V6. Although it will not beat a ready-to-burn-that-road Mustang 
5.0 at stoplight dragstrip, it WILL beat it when it's not suspecting 
anything spectacular from this little silly Toyota. (: (:

Of course, there are people who buy cars for image -- not its 
drivability. Look at all those FARMIN' (: trucks and SUVs out there -- 
how could anyone drive that especially on the highways!! And look at all 
those dress-up kits out there that do absolutely nothing to increase the 
handling or speed of the vehicle. 

Maybe that's why Audi's not selling too well -- they don't have 
gold-plated kits to tack on!
