Dear Hot Girls Posing with Cars and the People who Promote them,
I'm a 20-something male that has more money than brains on most days of the week. I'm in love with all makes and models and not picky at all when it comes to admiring a car's qualities. Hell, I like the Pontiac Aztek and I've owned a Ford Taurus Wagon. I spend more time looking at pictures of cars on the internet than I do actually driving the cars I own. I also enjoy the female form so much I married one, and have no problem appreciating pictures of scantily-clad women and dabble in the regular viewing of various online accounts of women showing their unique skills. I'm your target demographic.
