Which Car Do You Stare At Every Time You See It?
For me, being in and watching traffic roll by is often like staring at static. For instance, with the number sold, I’ve probably laid eyes on and forgotten more silver Honda Civics than I’ve seen Porsches in total.
Call it static, white noise, or whatever works for you, but these days, largely uninspiring modern designs and Peak Crossover has left our roads as tasteful as your nearest megamall parking lot.
Every now and then, however, the world conspires to send a bolt of different across your view. A tastefully-modified BMW, perhaps. Or a Nissan GT-R using launch control to humble a cabbie. If you’ve been lucky, maybe you’ve seen one of our video subjects out and about in the “real world”.
I’m a sucker for French cars in general, and the UFO-like Citroën SM in particular. Not many are out there wafting around, but I find that they appear more modern and fresh with each passing day.
As soon as one glides into view, its sleek and measured shape captivates me almost as if I’ve never seen one before. And if I can stop and stare for a bit, my next appointment will hopefully understand.
That said, I’m lucky: here at Petrolicious, being a bit late because of a chance encounter with an SM is understood. What car stops you in your tracks every time you see it?
