Valentines Day – Time to modify your Girl

Valentines Day – Time to modify your Girl

Many years ago, I was busy preparing to spend some cash on modifications for my Mazda Familia when I received some sound advice. An older and wiser friend told me to save the money I was about to spend, borrow a little more and sell my Familia. Then, with the all the money I had at my disposal buy a newer, better car. It was just too radical for my young mind to get around and I never took that advice, but it was when I was first taught the concept of ‘upgrading’.

Now, with Valentines day tomorrow it reminded me of that important lesson and got me thinking about all the men out there who secretly wish they could just upgrade their ladies. Perhaps an upgrade to a younger model, or one with different dimensions and weight specs, but upgrading is not really an option for most. So all that’s left to do is modification and Valentines day is the perfect opportunity to begin a full modification program. This Valentines when buying modifying gifts you can forget your wishful Italian cookbooks, gym memberships and Vacuum cleaners, and instead start from the feet up.

Based on the now defunct Gallardo Superleggera, the new Lamborghini inspired pumps make the perfect gift. What woman doesn’t like shoes and what man doesn’t like Lamborghinis, it’s pure genius. The high-heels are well thought out, right down to the carbon fibre stilettos holding them up. So with your ladies feet looking hotter than ever you’re ready to hit the town.

Sadly, these Lamborghini shoes don’t really exist yet, so you won’t be able to get any for tomorrow. But we are Kiwi men and don’t need to buy overpriced Italian footwear when we have tools and sheds. You’ll score extra points for making the shoes yourself and you can base the style on your favorite car. For nostalgic reasons I’m going to make a pair of 1986 Mazda Familia size-8 wedges, with a two-tone white and silver paint job. Can’t fail.
