They certainly got my attention but I guess the average man on the street in Manhattan is not that into cars.

This is precisely why I don't give a rat's a$$ whether someone looks at my car or not. I drive what I drive because it makes ME happy. I drive what I drive because it makes ME smile when I look at it. I would need 10 sets of hands (and feet) to count the number of times I have read on the many different car forums I frequent the following comments "xyz just doesn't garner any attention" or "which one of these cars will get my car valet'd in the front row". I just laugh at the fools that post this nonsense. If one wants to be noticed and is that much of an attention whore, walk around on stilts for Christaske or wear a clown suit everyday.....that'll get you noticed.
