GQ came out with a list of what they consider to be the ‘most stylish cars’ in history dating back to the 1960’s. As known lovers of all things stylish, we were asked by a reader to weigh in on the proclivity of cars being stylish, specifically, the Ford Flex. And if we indeed believed the car to be stylin’, would it rub off on our readers personal style. Let’s see…
Instead of the faux-sporty, swoopy lines that so many cars this size have adopted as if to say “I’m not a minivan!,” the Flex is unabashedly boxy, its most outstanding feature being the four horizontal grooves on the doors. Like the Ford Woody that those lines evoke, the Flex is comfortable being what it is the most stylishly square people-mover on the road today.
Interestingly enough, Flaxen and fam actually test drove this vehicle in Quebec while on the prowl for something that suited their needs of travel and transport, room for the fam and length for skis in the winter. The two contestants were of the above mentioned, the Flex and a minivan! Being the lover of style and surf that she is, Flaxen couldn’t help being drawn to the Flex-it’s boxy features remniscent of the old surfer wagons of yesteryear. I’m sure Gidget and Moondoggie schlepped their boards all over so-cal on one of these!
Unfortunately, with the starting price at somewhere around 30k, the Flex was a no go for them. Maybe when this blog starts raking in the dough, she could be driving the Flex and Tawny could be driving one of these.
So now back to the question at hand, is the Ford Flex a FT pick as one of the most ultimate in style? Of course! Will the car’s stylish-ness rub off on our reader? For sure;)
