Making the wrong impression
I picked up an ad for the Mitsubishi Verada in a magazine a while ago, and I couldn’t resist mentioning it. It suggests the car might be perfect for an afternoon drive past the houses of:
(a) Your old economics teacher who said you’d amount to nothing
(b) Your first boss (ditto)
(c) Your ex-wife who left you for someone with better prospects
In other words, if you’re an embittered loser who’s willing to pay more than you can afford in order to impress people you don’t like and who’ve probably forgotten you even exist, buy this car.
