shiny cars

Oh the terrible burden of sudden wealth. It's a problem that seems unlikely to trouble me anytime soon, which is a shame as I don't think I'd have any issues knowing what to spend it all on.

Not everyone is so lucky though, it would appear that there is too much 'new money' floating about these days in the hands of filthy nouveau types. They lack the generations of training that allow one to handle immense wealth with dignity and style.

Luckily for these arrivistes there are people willing to help out by organising events like the Luxury Show in Bucharest. Perhaps the location in sunny fun-filled Romania is a wee clue, one assumes that there's a soup├žon of new Russian mineral wealth attending these shindigs. It's all good though 'cause your typical Dirkistanian oligarch who a mere 6 months ago was scraping a living as a cabbage farmer and occasional part time thug has pretty much the same taste and sophistication as yer average premiership footballer.

Little surprise then that the place is filled with choice stuff like this...

I'm not sure what message a '68 Bug covered in 18k gold sends out... answers on a postcard.

Holy crap. I think if you covered a dried turd in gold and jewels these tasteless, yet obscenely wealthy individuals could be talked into buying some.

"a '68 Bug covered in 18k gold"?

Pity the clapped out engine won't be able to move a car with that much added weight to the body work. So it will have to be pushed into the canal.

It's not just our style deprived eastern european cousins that turn out expensive naff tat. Our very own Damien Hirst seems to lurch between bad-taste-by-numbers and tatty-bling-for-the-sake-of-it in the yawnfest that is his "art". No wonder he's friends with lots of pop stars; lots of money and no idea on how to spend it. If you find that Liam Gallagher comes a-knocking at your door, you know you've ended up in the wrong part of the council estate.

At least the bug is still prettier than a Porsche Cayenne - now that really is too much money and little taste!
