Ronnie Schreiber’s day job requires that he check out the auto shows, but there are, um, distractions that must be dealt with:
To be honest, I’m a bit ambivalent about the distracting presence of beautiful women at big car shows. I once asked Andreas Serrano, who does marketing for Maserati of North America, why they have beautiful women on their stand. Serrano, a native Italian, looked at me like I was crazy and said, “Beautiful cars … beautiful women, they go together, no?”
“True,” I replied, “but you like cars and I like cars. You like women and I like women. If you had to pick one to look at, the car would lose.”
The least obvious statement here, I’d say, is that Maserati actually has an Italian fellow hawking their cars in the States.
And on his own site, Schreiber furnishes 3-D pix of the cars and of the women. At least he’s consistent.
