James Buttrick from Vantage Leasing said, “There has always been an unspoken bond between boys and their toys, and a man’s car is often considered a reflection of their own personality. It’s unsurprising to see the strength of this fondness for our vehicles coming through in the results – though we’re not sure we’d like to take a ride in something called ‘The Purple People-Eater’.”
