Default Your favorite STAR and your favorite CAR

How about relating your car with your favorite actor/actress/model

Like...If movie stars were the cars of 2006 Check out this link...http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...id-1339925.cms

And I'll reserve my option till someone comes close to what I'm thinking about Vtec.

So go ahead pair your favorite cars with your favorite stars...

I don't agree with the Hyundai Azera-Bips. come on, Bips is tooo sexy for a basic car like the Azera. Think about it, if you had a date with Bips, would you take her in the Azera?

And I totally agree with the Maybach-Sushmita Sen. Perfect car for the Perfect woman!

And why are they insulting the Skoda Laura by comparing it with Ashwariya Rai? For a "souless" and "plastic" Ash, a car like the Alto should be okay!

The idea of anologies of movie stars with cars itself is stupid.

Then could you please explain why people go movie stars n models for promoting there products (like Sania for GETS; Abhishek for fiesta...)

Ya I'm clear that they have nothing to do with the performance of a CAR, But being an Off-topic discussion thread (away from cars n bikes) I don't think its a major blunder to talk about this topic. May be the grey cell don't think beyond the boundaries.

Request to Mods: May be you can delete this thread, if this is not in interest for a mass group.

VtecDeGr8, that is just my opinion....why should anybody delete the thread coz one person (me) thinks its a stupid idea?

To voice opinions is the purpose of a board so I dont think why any of us did anything wrong here ? :-)

My favourite star is Sylvia Saint. if you dont know who that is, get off the internet.
Still deciding on a car. But if Ms Saint promoted a car, I'd buy it.

How about Schumi - Palio 1.2, Sachin - Palio 1.2 Sport?

But I must admit Schumi's ad did have a part to play in me going for the car. After all I call myself a die hard tifosi, and its an added perk if my fav star promotes it

Actually I didn't know who was Sylvia Saint, so I googled... You dirty boy, you should keep off Internet.

Heh heh, admit it, she's pretty and pretty good at a job. We should all have stars we can look up to. This is the stuff stars are made of Samurai. What car do you think she would endorse?? Serious question.

Bike, Sam, BIKE. A topless car may be a good idea, but she should endorse bikes. A black Ducati Monster, maybe?
