Slightly too cynical I think :-)

You do a significant number of people an injustice :-)
All the cars my family drive (4) are based on practicality, utility  and
relative cost benefit.
Many, perhaps most, of the people I associate with regularly have vehicles
which are primarily chosen on their utility aspects. (Belonging to a church
with a large proportion of Samoans does skew that somewhat :-) - Samoan tend
to have large families and to drive vans due to their large seating capacity
and good price per seat.)

I can't fit a train in my garage alas.

Any significant people can consider himself not addressed :)  Since I said
"mostly", you're free to think it applies to all those you don't know :)
