Most people don't get being into cars. A good example is the MINI Cooper S - when I tell a non-car person I want one, most don't get it and think that someone who is about 6'4 shouldn't drive it. My response? Squeeze into it and you'll change your mind.
The Ford Focus RS is that car that I want to own - in the awful, bright, snotty green color - but I wouldn't want anyone to know about it. Most people would laugh at me and just say "it's a Ford Focus, what the hell is wrong with you?" Of course, most Ford Focuses don't come with 305HP so I guess that'll help me get over the negative remarks.
