A few weeks ago we asked you how far you’d be willing to go to include your love of cars in less-than-relevant life events. But before you even get the green light from your significant other to do this, you probably need to share some of your automotive enthusiasm with him or her. And, you’ll have to forgive me but I’m going to generalize here, most non-Petrolisti aren’t too impressed by 8000 horsepower Top Fuel dragsters. While shockingly quick, they do have limited appeal even to us car nerds.
So it should probably be something a little, or a lot, more subtle. It should probably be friendly, accessible, and I’d imagine organic is better than angular. Or is it just a question of how you drive? But if you had one chance to “convert” your significant other into petrolista, which one car would be best suited to the task?
