Phase 1: You paint your car with fluorescent colours, paste big stickers and play loud music
Phase 2: You change the car paint to ordinary colours, and let it inconspicuously melt in the traffic
Phase 3: You declare that a car is a necessity, not a luxury. As long as the engines and battery function well, nothing else matters.

For some, the three phases translate to ages 20-30-40. For others, it is 20-40-60.
