Dude I would happily drive a rusty 15-year-old pickup with a manual gearshift
Also I'd rather have a car that isn't littered with sensors, runs proprietary software, has an always-on internet connection, and would gladly smash into a concrete wall with non-responsive pedals and steering wheel if there was a certain software bug or malware attack

But the one in the first pic looks a bit nicer I guess, since that's probably what you meant to ask

I'm having trouble thinking of the last time I ate meat, other than maybe a single slice of pizza that may have contained some bacon bits.
