If you've got it; flaunt it.

I drive a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon. It's not the GT or SE model, so it's only a 4-cylinder engine, but it's a manual and can still kick when I want it to.

The Lexus SC: sexy.

The speedometer goes to 180.

What this leads me to is that there are many people in the area where I live and work who have cars much nicer than mine. Case in point: today at lunch, a Lexus SC was in front of me at a stoplight, waiting to pull into a parking lot. For those of you who don't know, the SC is a very sexy coupe with a 288 hp V8 engine. However, the driver of this car decided to poke through the turn at about 7 mph. What this amounted to was me - the second car at the light - barely making it through and into the parking lot, where, again, the Lexus rolled along at the same 7 mph.

Now c'mon. If you own a Lexus, a BMW, a Porsche, et al, don't go leisurely rolling through lights or around parking lots. You have a vehicle designed and engineered by skilled professionals for power, speed, and aerodynamics; use it, for Heaven's sake!
