It's not that I don't understand the concept of personification It's the difficulty in understanding how a car can appear to be sexy, or the unwillingness to assign the term to an inanimate object. I reserve sexy for well, people I find sexually attractive. I'd like it to stay that way. Calling a car sexy is just weird.

Though, mean or menacing, or dorky, or even cute I get... but sexy, no, just no that's for people you want to have sex with,, not cars.
