The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

What happened to that little red Celica?

Is there such a thing as undercompensation?

The women I know all point at men driving Hummers and sports cars and say that he is obviously "overcompensating." I usually come right back and ask, "Then how come when you see me pull up in my Toyota Echo no one ever says, 'He must be hung like a horse'?"

Title reference: I used to own one of these: a '75, in GT trim. Finally retired her in '95.

Good point. I drive a '74 VW. Needless to say, I hope the VW is not considered an overcompensation!
