I don’t think I’ve ever seen a better example of how this town values style over substance than when I was driving home this evening.
You know, the hubcaps that have a piece that spins independently of the actual wheel so it either looks stable while you’re moving or continues to spin when you stop.
I strongly suspect that the hubcaps were more valuable than the entire rest of the car combined. In fact, by selling the car and saving the money from the hubcaps, a much better car could have been purchased.
And thusly, style won out over substance, even in the driving choices of the utterly broke.
