UK’s motor vanity fair (8) [Bâlciul deşertăciunilor cu motor din UK]

It’s very likely that those who own cars like these don’t need to have an hourly job in a USSU store (in front of which are parked), isn’t it?

Maybe they just love the cute girls working there (about whom I’ll probably write some day) … Or is it – just like in front my former high school – that a place like the Univerity of Sussex (US) campus (where 70 to 80% of the students are girls) is a great place to show-off?

Anyway, I just wanted to illustrate what cars some students have (I've seen better ones in front of Romanian high schools), adding that this could be a proof to what someone from the univeristy has recently wrote to me – that more and more students at the US are coming from private (independent) schools.

This shouldn’t necessarily be something bad, as these people are better prepared than those coming from the crumbling public education system. What is hard to say is how much better intellectually prepared (and owning a cool car) has to do with becoming a better human being in such an atheist society like the British one is today.

I suppose that driving such cars throughout the lovely landscape of East Sussex (a bit of this wonderful part of the world on this very blog – here, or much more – here and here) should be a lovely experience.

Of course, I shouldn’t be mean and judgemental in my assumptions, but it’s sad to witness that, quite often, those who drive cars like these wouldn’t care at all about the lovely landscape and all the natural wonders that the Lord gave to this island.

God bless anyone who drives such cars to explore the beauty of the English countryside, not just to go from one pub to another, from one social event to another, and who realize that a good car is but a tool for discovering the world, not some ‘motor idol’ increasing self-confidence, a most unreliable ‘asset’ someone could count on!
