Vehicle to get to compensate for lack of... stuff

(Of course, mind the day this was posted.) An acquaintance of mine went car shopping for a vehicle, and the words used were essentially "something that can compensate for lack of... you know what".

The Honda dealer recommended he go down the road to the Dodge place.

The Volvo place tried selling him an 18-wheeler with a sleepover cab that almost was as big as some RVs.

One Ford dealer offered a Harley-Davidson pickup with a bike in the trailer as a package deal.

Another had a custom F-350 with a 12" lift and bogger tires.

What would you recommend?

This of course depends on what he wants to attract with his compensating. I recommend a Corvette or used Viper. Of course, he can only pick up one chick at a time with those. If he wants to pick up an entire pack of floozies I recommend a 90's Safari van, shag carpet, aviator sunglasses.

It seems somewhat ambiguous to me.
