Your point of view is 100% right v8volvo. But I think we can add another point, which is the power of pure conformism. Ridding an old car, it does give one some kind of charisma, but it also exposes one to make himself ridiculous. Even if my car runs great (ok, that does not happen every time) it will always look funny to the eyes of most people .

As if people's psychology were not able to make a distinction between the fact to have an object you like and all the speculations that surround that fact : to them, riding a D24 is beeing some kind of strange guy stuck in an passed world, a passed aesthetism.
