CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.  

For the record, Iā€™m not talking about funny Blipshift stuff or whatever. Iā€™m talking a T-shirt with a Lamborghini splashed across the chest. A polo with a Ferrariā€™s prancing horse climbing up its sleeve. How acceptable is it to wear something like that?

I posed this question to the rest of the team. Wrencher in Chief David Tracy thought that it was more acceptable for you to wear a shirt if you donā€™t own the car. Why, he reasoned, would you want to buy the shirt if you already had the car?

Iā€™m in a different camp. I think itā€™s slightly toolish to wear a Porsche shirt if you donā€™t own a Porsche. I know this because I own two Ducati shirts, a Pagani shirt and a long-sleeved Ferrari polo. I donā€™t have any of those vehicles.

Like that gentleman in the above photo. Heā€™s got on a Lamborghini jacket and a Lamborghini T-shirt underneath it. Heā€™s posing for a Lamborghini catalog photo, sure. But how would you feel if you came across him in your daily life?
