School Bus, L.A. Style
You know that Porsche commercial where they show a Porsche 911 being used as a school bus? You may scoff and think who would use such an expensive car to transport kids to school. Well, I live in Los Angeles, CA. We are the center of the universe for conspicuous consumption. A Porsche here is pretty common and proletarian. These pictures show L.A. ostentation at its best, or worst. The extraordinarily expensive cars were used to transport their little passengers to the local preschool. In a parking lot packed with SUV's and minivans, these two luxury vehicles certainly stood out. People complain Angelenos are flamboyant and pretentious. And you know what, they may be right. And no, the owners are not physicians.
