Are You A Head Or Heart Guy?

What camp do you fall into when considering a new car? Do you go with your head, or does your heart manage to pulls the wool over it?

Here’s an article I wrote for Motor Ward on this very subject.

Do Reality Celebs Deserve The Fame… And The Cars?

Of course they don’t – I’ll put that out there from the beginning because those who disagree can simply stop reading.

These so-called C-list celebrities have found fame and fortune simply being on reality programs, where they, themselves go about fulfilling a series of scripted scenes. There are a lot of these soul-sucking, train crash, car wreck programs but the worst has to be the States’ Jersey Shore… hang on a minute, I stand corrected as we in the UK were subjected to an equally trite Geordie Shore.

Despite being separated by the Atlantic, these two groups of people (if you can call them that) are filmed going about their daily lives together in a house much like the idiotic Big Brother, which mainly involves partying, arguing, talking at length about emotions, crying (there’s lots of that from the Snooki freak pictured above), fighting, falling down drunk and many lurid sexual encounters that scream STD.

When all is said and done these creatures are plastered over magazines and force-fed ludicrous amounts of money. One creature in particular is an orange pug-faced thing that calls himself “The Situation” (above) – if this arrogance isn’t enough to want to hurt a person, I don’t know what is. This talentless “Guido” (I think this means c**t in Italian) currently owns an M5, a Ferrari California and F430, a Caddy Escalade, a Bentley, a custom Jeep Wrangler, and a Lamborghini Gallardo… and for what?

When you see someone like Tom Cruise or Nicole Kidman cruising around in supercars, it’s a given – they are hardworking actors who’ve been entertaining us for years. But these useless waste of spaces?

Not only have they been given this money, but they just buy the flashiest cars without any thought as to their heritage or future collectability. And what true petrolhead would buy both a Ferrari and a Lamborghini as convertible?

“Oh but you’re just jealous…”

YES, yes I am bloody jealous!

Right, I’m off to watch the Brazilian Grand Prix qualifying as I’ve managed to wind myself up.

And remember: A book dies every time you watch reality TV.
