When you see a certain brand of car, most of us will tend to stereotype the owner. What do you think a car says about the owner?

Don't take this too seriously, this is just for fun :)

Here's what I think.

Acura: I am a future business leader (yuppie)
Alfa Romeo: I enjoy taking risks and doing something new
AMC: The south will rise again!:p
Audi: I want a german car, just something more avant garde.
Bentley: I have more money than you!
BMW: I NEED a german car, why not get what everyone else has?
Buick: I enjoy watching and playing golf
Cadillac: I am a very smart individual with extremely good tastes! :D
Chevrolet: Blue collared hardworking american!
Chrysler: I dont know...see Buick
Citroen: I enjoy a challenge!
Daewoo: I know absolutely nothing about automobiles at all
Dodge: see Chevrolet
Eagle: I dont know....
Ferrari: I have good tastes, and a lot of money, and a house in Arizona
Fiat: I enjoy a good challenge, and I like spending money!
Ford: I hate Chevys!
Geo: The only thing I care about is fuel economy
GMC: I own a construction business
Honda: I want a very low maintenance automobile
Infiniti: Damnit I want a BMW!
Jaguar: I am extremely classy, and I enjoy a good challenge.
Jeep: screw practicality, I wanna off road!
Kia: see Daewoo :p
Lamborghini: I have a LOT of money!
Land Rover: I wanna off road in class and luxury!
Lexus: I have to have the best! (apparently Lexus is the best?!?!?)
Lincoln: I belong to a country club, and I have extremely good tastes
Mazda: I want something less monotonus than a Honda
Mercedes Benz: See Lexus, but with more class, and knowledge
Mercury: see Buick
Mitsubishi: I thought all japanese cars were excellent!
Nissan: I like cars that are cheap, and go fast
Oldsmobile....Hmmm I dont know, help anyone?
Pontiac: My car is faster than yours!
Porsche: I have good tastes, and a lot of money :)
Rolls Royce: I am british royalty!
Saab: I voted for Kerry :p
Saturn: see Geo
Subaru: hmmm yeah I think we all know this one, I like the environment
Toyota: I bought this for peace of mind
Volkswagen: Kerry should have won! Vote Liberal!
Volvo: I value safety above everything else

What do you guys think?

You didn't use the term Yuppie, nearly enough! ie, MB, BMW, Lexus, Infinity, etc.... The AMC was more popular in the upper midwest than anywhere, it was sort of the midwestern Saab.

I'll comment on these 3.

My wife drives an '04 Acura MDX. I wouldn't argue with your comment, but my wife would be quick to say, "what do you mean future business leader, I'm a business leader right now".

I drive a Cadillac CTS. Your assessment is 100% accurate.

My neighbor drives a Saab. He is a dedicated Republican and I know for sure he didn't vote for Kerry.

Except my wife isn't cheap, she's stubborn.

The repair bills should be enough to prove that. It's due for another $400 something or other.

Only Led Zep's "Rock & Roll" and Johnny Cash. Maybe that's it..the man in Black!

Yeah, the ones I had were always expensive for servicing and the such.

I was talking like the 1980s ones that people should sell, but refuse to

I have an Acura Legend and while I may be a yuppie in a certain sense I'm really not. I chose it for my wife because it has a long wheel base. It is easy to fit our two kids in the back, junk in the trunk, and still be able to put the driver seat back as far as I need to. We don't take good care of it but it has taken good care of us. She is a good car.

Now, I'm 32 and people keep asking me when I'm going to put a ball on the antennae of my Caddy so I can find it in the parking lot! They are let down when I tell them it has a power antennae so that would be pointless.

Its a great idea

Thanks the stars for parking sensors, although, I have noticed the ones on the Mercedes pick up reflections from the wet road, so you could be sitting in an empty car park, that is wet with the car in reverse, and it would bleep because it can see itself in the reflection, and its seen as a close object.

A guy who lives a few houses down has a 'Vette. He is about 300 years old. He has the tennis ball haning down from the garage. I don't blame him though.

Older guys tend to...

My grandad had a Jaguar at one point, it had a massive hood (i was too young to remember it, it just seemed huge) and he started doing it then
