Exterior

The sleek-lined Silverstone Metallic Genesis coupe with a rear spoiler turned plenty of heads - something I enjoyed. The Genesis coupe is sporty and sexy, and it resembles other uber-expensive flashy sports cars out there. It seems to resemble anything but a Hyundai.

I was most thrilled to impress the teenage girl serving me and my daughters at the Dairy Queen drive-through. When I pulled up to the drive-though window, the girl looked admirably at me in my super-cool Genesis coupe with two kids in the back and exclaimed, "I love your car."

I could just see she was impressed that a mom - of all things - could rock such a cool car. I was tempted to squeal the tires and drift away from the DQ just to solidify my cool factor. However, reality hit me that I was trying to impress a teenager operating a DQ drive-through window, and I resisted.
