How authors choose which cars their characters drive

Post from William Gibson about why his characters use Apple Macs and drive VW's. Its written in response to those people who said he was taking product placement money.

William Gibsons novels are great as he has a knack of describing the alternative worlds his character exist in and as he says "I have to convince myself, before I can hope to convince you", so writes about the products he uses.
