What's Your Automotive Guilty Pleasure?

Illustration for article titled Whats Your Automotive Guilty Pleasure?

My favorite type of car is without a doubt, the Bachelor's Sports Mobile. I like cars that are lightweight, tossable, and fun and yet for some reason I love this, the 10th-Generation Chevrolet Suburban.

It's pretty much the opposite of a lightweight sports car, and I reviled it until I drove one. Sure the interior build quality was crap, the ergonomics were hysterically bad, and calling it a gas-guzzler would be the understatement of the century, but there was something about this truck. Something I can't quite explain.

Maybe it was the effortless torque from the big V8. Or maybe the fact that it can easily hold a full sized harp and four people with comfort (which is useful for .001% of the population). Maybe it was it's unabashed honesty, made in an era where we didn't yet care about gas prices or sensibility. To this day I still can't put my finger on it.

It has nothing I look for or care about in a car, and yet I couldn't help but love this symbol of American excess. It's my automotive guilty pleasure, now show us in the comments what's yours.

Yeah. That's right. Let the flames begin.

But it's AWD.

It can carry more than a day's worth of groceries.

It came with a tent. A TENT.

I don't mind the styling either.
