Now you may be thinking to yourself, “Why would spare car parts be needed if I want to take the look of my car to the next level? Shouldn’t I be looking at something else? At the very least, shouldn’t I be considering after market car part accessories?”
Well, not so fast. A lot of car enthusiast think that if you really want your car to stand out, you need to get car accessories. Theses are specially designed parts that grab a lot of eyeballs.
The problem is they are victims of their own success. Why? Everybody knows that they are accessories. Accordingly, they get discounted. In other words, when I’m looking at a Ferrari that uses a body kit that is after market, I automatically think that the person who owns this is obviously trying to look good.
There’s nothing wrong with that, but believe me that the level of analysis in that context is different than when you look at a must afford mustang from 1965, for example, that uses high quality spare car parts to look authentic. It’s as if this car just rolled of the assembly line.
I’m not saying that the level of attention as well as the level of respect, admiration and “fanboy” effect will be the same in both context, but you get my point. There’s just something that gets a lot more respect and admiration when you look at a car that seems fully restored. It looks like it’s brand new. Nothing added, nothing extra fancy, it just looks naturally brand new.
It’s kind of like meeting a very beautiful woman. There are a lot of good looking women out there, but some tease their hair, they wear fake eyelashes, some even change the color of their hair. They basically go through the whole 9 yards to look pretty. There are, however, good looking women who look very natural. They don’t even try. They just have the right skin tone, the right level of oil on their skin and the right haircut that highlights their face.
Again, some guys are into chicks who look like they have a kilo of makeup on. Everybody’s got their own preferences. Different strokes for different folks, right? But there is something to be said about a natural look and this is exactly the kind of mindset you have to have when it comes to your car. Are you interested in the “ultimate” look of your car?
Well, if that’s the case, then look at what that piece of automotive engineering looked like when it came off the assembly line. That’s the look you should shoot for. If that’s the case, then you need high quality spare car parts that would make it appear fully restored. That’s the kind of game you should be playing.
If you are like a high school student or a very insecure person, you can put some sort of spoiler in the back, you can lower it and put a skirt on your car and all sorts of fancy stuff.
Believe me that there is definitely a community that appreciates that kind of stuff, but for everybody else, it looks like you’re trying too hard. I hope you get my point.
