Maybe yes, maybe no. I could own a Stinson Gullwing just for the pleasure of looking at it, but it would always come in second place to my Rocket, which lookes like any other "spam can" RV. The Rocket is such a fantastic airplane to fly, I don't care what it looks like or whether it has any ramp appeal at all. Hell, I'd paint it flat brown with pink hearts all over it if it would buy me another 5 knots of speed.I beg to differ. If you are going to spend a good chunk of your free time with the aircraft, you should be comfortable with it and perhaps a bit in love. Here, looks are important, too. Or rather attraction.
As with people, "looks" never sustain a relationship for long.
