Foward thinking

I am not sure why guys love big, fast and comfy cars. They are gals who love car but they could not match the relationship of a man with their cars. It could be that cars are closely link with girls, beautiful girls. Hence the bigger, faster and comfy it is, the more girls will be attracted to the driver, I mean to the car. Do not agree? Ask the guys, if they dream about cars, which car do they dream of? Wira? Kancil? Iswara? Hahaha I guess it will be Porsche, Lamborghini, BMW, Benz, Bentley and etc.

I was parking my Vios at a departmental store in BKK when I saw this Black Mazda 3 opposite me. Over here in BKK, you can get the top end modal with just RM80K. Mazda has been coming out with some great cars that have style. I do not think our Waja or Gen2 could match it. It’s like comparing a Chap Ah Kow underwear against a Calvin Klien. The Mazda range was beef up with a new member, Mazda 5, which is going to replace the 6 years old Premacy. However with all these modal, the only one I have ever seen on Malaysia road is Mazda 6.

I am not sure why Malaysia is so slow to adopt new modal. I guess the government has a lot of rules or taxes impose onto foreign made cars until it is not feasible to have it on sale here. By doing so it deprives us of artistic thoughts. Foreign car markers will dump their modal over here when it has become outdated. One good example is Citroen Picasso. It was only introduced here a year plus ago when in Europe it was almost at the end of its life cycle. No wonder I could see that we are way behind in terms of design as we being expose to outdated modals. How can we expect our national car designer to come out with great looking cars?

I guess not only the car industry is suffering from this. Other industry that requires constant exposure to artistic thoughts and ideas like fashion, interior designs and etc has the same fate. Some might say, just buy magazine or surf the net for inspiration. How do we explain then that the best design always comes from a foreign country? When you walked in streets Paris, what do you see? How does it inspire you? How do we move forward when day in and day out we see things that are meant to be in the history books? Beats me, I manage to take a picture of a car that I dream of daily, guess what car is it? Guys don't stop dreaming as there are possibilities that your dreams might comes true one day, I hope mine has.

The Mazda 6 has been out in the US for a long time, I see quite a few on the roads everyday. I am not attracted to men with flashy cars, I am more inclined to own one myself, hehehe
