The first car he spots in Autotrader is the BKOO St Louis 360. The photo of the car makes him wonder….”Could this be it?” He adds it to the list of cars to visit in person.
In the flesh, the BKOO St Louis 360 has the look of a well sculptured piece of automotive art….until you look at it straight on whereby it looks rather mean and angry. The shivers ran down his spine.
The interior is luxurious and comfortable. To the amusement of the seller, he climbs in the boot and asks for the car to be started and revved. With the engine revving he closed the boot and was a little dismayed at the noise level drop. Not quite what he was expecting.
The test drive went well and the car was easy to drive ….but the noise from the back, or lack of, was disappointing….maybe the luxury interior was too much.
The next car was the Sinistra Savage and, from the advert, it looked aggresive. It didn’t “ring any bells” but he thought it would be worth a look anyway.
The car looked pretty classy, once he moved away from the gaudy front then he opened the doors.
HOLY CRAP!! Hadn’t Sinistra heard of seat springs or have they just collapsed through age? He tried sitting in it but it was far too uncomfortable.
Out of curiosity he asked for the car to be started up. Right sort of noise but in the wrong car.
He decided to forego the test drive and carried on.
Next up was the Bogliq Ambassador…or, he thought, a nonBogliq-blue Bogliq!
The front of the car looked years ahead of time and, in his mind, more akin to a muscle car.
The rest of the car looked a lot classier but, in itself, wasn’t menacing.
The premium interior felt comfortable. The exhaust sound was loud. Not as loud as the Sinistra but loud enough.
It seemed bad manners not to take it for a test drive and he found it an easy and smooth ride.
Unfortunately the front end just didn’t have what he expected. Disappointedly he left the seller and continued his search.
Next on the list was the BM Screamer. Another good looking car without exuding any great feelings of menace but there is something about it.
Another premium interior give a comfortable feeling as he tried different seats. The engine was loud and very audible from the boot. He ponders that someone is going to call the local psych ward with him closing himself in car boots.
The test drive went well but the “menace” factor was still hindering him. He adds it to the list of cars he will consider mainly because the car looked like it was frowning, due to the extended bonnet and the sad mouthed grill.
This looks very promising. The advert for the LLA Infiltrator showed an angry and savage looking car. Reading through the advert he noticed it only had 4 seats but he knows, from his notes, that the car had 5 seats in it. He flicked the page.
Next on the list was the Fleet Industries Landship. This was a big classy looking car but failed to promote any sort of feeling. He classed this car more in line with an executive car, with a more slightly stately look.
The seats were very comfortable and from the inside this could be the car. But from the outside it definitely wasn’t. He started the car up and the sound coming from the exhaust was a little underwhelming.
The seller mentioned that it was easy to drive but the looks stopped him taking it out and he moved on.
When he looked at the Chapel he thought it had was more dementedly happy than demonically vicious. It’s like they used Barney for Jurassic Park he thought! But as he looked longer it reminded him more of those creepy clowns, which unnerved him slightly.
The creepy clown car stared at him as he walked up the driveway and he didn’t want to be here. The seller opened the car up and he had a look inside. 4 comfortable looking seats.
He apologised for time-wasting but explained that he needed a car with 5 seats. This was another car, similar to the Infiltrator, that had so much going for it but not where it mattered.
The next car to be seen was the Penrose Customs Imperator. The looks were very understated whilst also having an air of importance. Had it been black then he’d have assumed that a crime lord had been a previous owner.
The car itself was the most comfortable car he’d seen but the looks were more “executive”, as was the Landship. The sound from the exhaust was very loud, not as spectacular as the Sinistra, but still impressive.
The test drive went very well but, as with a lot of cars, it didn’t have the right look. He thanked the seller and carried on his search.
The advert for the Rado L2 showed a rather bland car. It looked more like a sales rep car than something that wanted to kill him.
He decided to pass on this car hoping that he’d find something more suitable.
The next car he found was the Serpente. It was a car with “interesting” looks. The fact that the indicators were larger than the teeny tiny headlights amused him greatly.
He was greeted with another nice and comfortable interior. The engine and exhaust sounds were very muted.
He looked at the front of the car, again, realised that it was the quirkiness that got him to look at the car and nothing else.
The last car on his list was the General Atomic Enfer and it looked like it wanted to cause trouble.
Inside he found 6 incredibly comfortable seats, more than he thought were required, but 6 couldn’t be classed as “too many”. The sound from the exhaust wasn’t what he was expecting, or hoping for, especially from the boot.
The test drive went well and so he decided to put this on the maybe list.
He went home to look at his options.
