Dan Neil in the LA Times:
Out on the savanna, the reproductively desirable male was older (à la Connery), of higher rank and status within the tribe and commanding more of its wealth. A female's innate programming tends to favor males with the potential to invest in her offspring, to commit resources to the family.Of course, there are a few holes in Neil's DILF analysis: A Ferrari signifies more wealth than a minivan. Also, Dan just became a D [twin girls, mazel tov!], which means he's not getting any F, or any sleep for that matter. Let's see what he says in 6 months.
And that is why the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country Limited just might be the sexiest vehicle a man could ever drive.
Let me draw a line under that: This 2 1/2 -ton pachyderm, with window shades and the Cartoon Network on Sirius satellite TV, is sexier than a Ferrari.
And if the new Chrysler really has made a shagtastic minivan combined "with the long-distance livability of custom van interior," why don't the rear seats fold down into a bed?
