Does This Fiat Make Me Look Fat? Function Vs. Form in a Car

Television personality Marie Kondo is creating a craze in society – convincing us to “unclutter”. Her filtering philosophy for cleaning out closets and garages is, “Does it bring you joy?”. You could ask this of the car you are currently driving.  Does it make you happy? Is it fun to drive or you look good in it? Is it an expression of your personality and lifestyle? Our father drives a maroon Honda Civic. Nothing about this vehicle says “Joy” or personal brand.  He doesn’t care- that’s not why he owns a car. He was looking for reliability, good gas mileage, and low monthly payments. He found all of that in a Honda Civic.

But then there’s our nephew, Emiliano. He drives the world’s most impractical car – a Nissan Skyline. There are very few of these in the United States, and they are barely legal.  The steering wheel is on the right-hand side, and it has terrible gas mileage, the clearance is super low so any speed bump is a drama, but it can go 155 to 200 miles per hour. Emiliano likes to drag race, and is something of a ladies man. He spends every paycheck on that car, but he’s got way more game with his race car than a Honda Civic.

If you’re looking for reliability, a comfortable ride, and to feel joy when you drive your car, we have you covered at Finn’s Discount Auto. Right now we’ve got a gray Nissan convertible that’s stylish and fun, as well as tried and true Honda Civics, and numerous mid-sized SUV’s like Hyundai Elantra.
