  I'm more commenting on their visual presence than their

  The proportions don't work well when people are in
the frame. Like, you look on a web site for Spitfire
pics and they look nice, but somebody drives by in
one and it looks like a kid's ride outside a grocery

  Throw in 25 cents and the spitfire tosses
and turns. Wheee! One more ride Mommy!

Midgets, Fiats, and so on.
