I really like Chris Hafner’s writing style as well — compact, personable, totally on-point. Great blog writing, IMHO.
It works beautifully for cars. I know it can’t possibly work as beautifully for houses, since cars are products: thousands of people can share their lust over a particular make/model. At the same time, I know there is such a thing as Houselust as well.
