#7: Second Mustang
Real cars drive into Second Life, car companies open dealerships where they sell real life models of their cars which are very customizable in many occasions. The first car brand to run a campaign in Second Life was Toyota with their Scion brand, a car which you can buy for L$300 so little over a buck if you convert back to real money. In the meantime Pontiac, Nissan and probably many others have entered the virtual world that is Second Life.
Of all ways to get my own Mustang I thought of so far, this is probably the easiest. My wife is a designer and with the support of a Second Life
junkie expert like Coolz0r it can’t be that hard to create such a virtual Mustang. The question is: so what? I’m not a big fan of Second Life to begin with and I definitely don’t see the fun in driving around a virtual world with a virtual car. How sexy is that?
Did you see the fragment from Bullitt I posted yesterday (check it out if you didn’t see it yet)? There’s only one way you can take a car like this for a spin… and that’s in real life. Have fun with your virtual Scion ;)
