Twinkies are the devil’s spawn. You know that those greasy little loaves are bad for you, and that they could potentially outlive you. You also know that they are not a food that demonstrates any level of cultural attainment at all. And yet, you still want to eat them. Mmmm, wasn’t that good now?
There are aspects of car culture that are the equivalent of Twinkies. There’s demolition derby, drifting, mud bogging, and – God help us all – the stance sub-culture. All of these have their proponents, although typically they are each seen as a less esteemed element of the overall car enthusiast lifestyle, as well as its ongoing agronomy. But, that doesn’t mean of course that you might not find one or more aspects to be without attraction.

Come on now, you’re amongst friends here, go ahead and unburden yourself, What generally pilloried element of car culture are you ashamed to admit you kind of like?
