The luxury car as a Rorschach test

Jalopnik sees a 2007 pink "$200,000 Lamborghini Gallardo with a custom-made rhinestone-bedazzled logo" as an "example of what got the US into the current economic mess." Interestingly, they make no such leap of logic when P Diddy gave his 16-year-old son a $342,000 Maybach.

Maybe they just don't like pink?

Well, they're both criminally stupid cars. Who ruins a great car like a Gallardo with tacky pink and rhinestones? And Maybachs are just Mercedes Benzes tarted up for people who Rolls Royce wouldn't let in their showroom for being too tacky.

OMG, that's a brilliant description of Maybachs!
