It’s a secret gays have known for years. Sometimes it’s necessary to portray a certain image. One of importance. One of style. But most importantly, one of effortless wealth. How else can you explain an entire bar filled with guys wearing jeans and tees from Target while sporting the latest Ted Baker shoes, Prada sunglasses and Gucci belts? Somehow, our eyes overlook the $9.99 sale items and zoom straight in on the high fashion.
As V.I.P.’s (in certain circles), we often have to attend high-profile, black-tie functions, which is no big deal. We’ve got the wardrobe to pull it off, but God forbid the event take place at a valet-only venue. No matter how hot we are in our new D&G tuxedos, stepping out of our ’82 Chevette hatchback with the one red door and coat hanger antenna isn’t going to go unnoticed.
Thankfully, we never have to worry about that scenario again thanks to Platinum Motorcars, an exotic car rental service specializing in luxury brands. The fees aren’t cheap, but can you really put a price on the feeling of pride you’ll have finally impressing that stunning barista who works the drive-through at Starbucks when you pull up in a $100,000 sports car?
And you never know when George Michael might be in town and in desperate need of a vehicle to pass out in for the paparazzi.
The new dealership has a fleet of 15 vehicles including Ferraris, Mercedes, Escalades and even the Oscar Mayer Wiener Mobile. (OK, that last one was just a personal fantasy of ours, not an actual inventory item).
Prices start at just $500 a day for a Range Rover to $2,250 for a Rolls Royce Phantom. We took out that baby one day and drove slowly past SMU during the men’s swim team practice with a bullhorn, offering free rides to our open-bar Sunday afternoon pool party.
Best two grand we ever spent.
