Each person will look at a situation differently which is what makes the world a great place; having a conversation with someone who agrees with you on 100% of your points quickly becomes dull.
With that said – "most" people when they are talking about sports cars instantly hone in on the same items such as power, performance, handling.....generally....how fast is this car going to go! All worthy conversation points that we have all shared a pint, or two, discussing.
The other night I was the last one at the office and took some time to walk through the shop and it became pretty apparent that even before we get to performance numbers there are details that make it all happen. I walked into the fabrication shop and there were numerous small parts being welded into a larger component – in this case it was an upright assembly – but it could have been anything – my point is that the care in the details of this starting point rarely comes up in "car talk". The combination of these details, and the care that each person puts into the fabrication allows us to have the, sometimes over embellished, conversations that are usually centered on overall performance. Next conversation you have with friends about cars toss in facts about the small details that matter and see where the conversation heads!
I will leave you this week with another unique look into automotive culture – check out this video from an Atom owner who talks about what it is like to own an Atom.....not strictly about how fast it is. (Although we are pretty sure he also likes to make it goes fast at the track!)
