It probably does for some, but not for all.
It's too easy to paint with that broad of a brush.
I'm 47, and I'm way past pumping up my chest to claim superiority with my car. I simply enjoy my car for me, and hold no illusions that I'm THE man on the street.
I do like to discuss automotive performance though, as most everyone else here does. Otherwise, why are they here, and continue to read these types of threads?
