I hope nobody here thought I was offended by the comment. I honestly
didn't get it. But then I have always bought my sports cars (when I
could afford them) based on their performance and not their social
status. Thus I have had (not in any particular order) an MGB, a 914,
an Alfa Romeo, a Simca (not a roadster, but a real good rallye car)
and now, I have my Spit. I never thought of any of them as anything
more than fun to drive.
