I'll respond as a car enthusiast in my late 20s who doesn't necessarily disagree with you. It is definitely tiresome meeting "car people" my age-ish who force me to look at pictures of their clapped out TSX or SC300. However, part of it is that even for reputable young professionals (thats yo-pros for you yuppie types), something like a C5 corvette will be almost un-insurable until you hit at LEAST 26. I remember trying to quote out a 2012 Coyote GT when i first graduated school and being met with what i would kindly call "inhospitable service" and then finally a "f*ck you" quote to make me walk away. My old WRX cost me more to insure per month than my little 3 car collection (stock B8 S4, original Z32 Z, and a del sol SI for credibility) does now. so i understand WHY young folks gravitate towards oddballs and sedans especially in their early 20s. not to mention as an increasing number of young folks live in densely populated urban areas, they can maybe afford to park 1 car, with 2 just being totally out of the question, so they need a "do it all" car and a beater 335 sedan sounds like the ""perfect"" 1 car solution for them. give a man a 15k bonus in kentucky, he will find a nice C5. give a man a 15k bonus in new york city, its going to rent increases and being ghosted by a bumble chick after a $200 dinner again.
Ha, I look forward to reading more from you. As a mid 20's, Solid Axle new edge Mustang owner, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this article. I'm surprised you never mentioned the over-use of hashtags and trap rap songs that most tend to post on a seemingly routine basis.
