Late 80s/Early 90s FWD econbox's/mid size cars...and they have been beaten to hell. Add some pickups and you have Binghamton and it's surrounding cities.

I've noticed a sharp increase in Nissans. Honda's are a staple around here, as are *some* GM cars. I see an uncanny number of 90s Pontiacs (Grand Prixs, Grand Ams, etc.) and I see lots of Impalas too. There are also TONS of Suburbans...

Chevrolet is the number one brand in total registration here, mostly trucks of one sort or another, Ford is next, then Toyota.

Besides Lexus, I ALWAYS see Explorers and Navigators! You will never go a day here without seeing one.

Anything American-made, here in rural Minnesota. Predominantly half-ton pickups, being this huge farming country. Most women drive Olds or Pontiacs. Only the college kids bring the rice, what little there is.

In addition to me, 2 other guys in my development have this. Same exact color.


We drive everyone crazy. So the CTS is probably the most prodominet in my development.

There are 2 new Chevy Surburbans on my cul-de-sac and 2 different kinds of Land Rovers.

1 Saab and several Mercedes..

Lots of Acuras (MDXs,TLs, RLs); including us, we have an MDX as well.

Someone down the street has one of those Lexus SC hardtop convertibles and another person just bought a Jaguar x-type (it is pretty cool).

I almost don't want to say this (because it is going to sound like I live in Beverly Hills), but 1 guy in my development has a Ferrari and a Porsche in his garage. He never drives them anywhere though...

The rest are mostly SUVs and mini vans; they just blend in and aren't really noticeable.

Well, waddaya expect in Snotsdale, er Scottsdale?

Just kidding, Speedy. I lived in the Phoenix area from 1988-2003, worked in the McCormick Ranch area for several years. It's actually a very nice area, but my house in Chandler was more in my price range. As an aside, I've learned that the house I sold for $138,500 in 2003 would probably sell for $270,000+ now. D'oh!

OK, back to the topic at hand. Like most everybody else, I see lots of Hondas and Toyotas, also a reasonably good number of Subarus. Lots of SUVs. I'd say Chevy and Ford are about even.

As for luxury makes, the most popular are probably BMW, Lexus and Acura. Counting mine, there's maybe 3-5 Cadillacs in the parking lot where I work (at least 200 cars, maybe more).

I don't have a clue where you live, but it'd nice living by someone who owns a Ferrari. My community drives mostly Explorers, Navigators, Lexus's, and a couple Cadillacs (that I know of anyways).

I imagine most neighborhoods have those few people that have an extraordinary vehicle. The only one I know of has a '67 Shelby GT350 and a 2002 Porsche 911 S. This guy is a bit older though, probably in his late 40's/early 50's.

Where exactly do you live?

I can't believe this rapid market either, when I moved here 7 years ago, my house was around $190,00 and I sold it 3 years ago for $260,000, now it'd be worth nearly $370,000 or so (it was in McCormick Ranch). I live in Grayhawk now, not in a house, but in a condo (more suitable for my bachelor life).

Im not there anymore... but the one place where I *ACTUALLY NOTICED* a predominant influence of a certain vehicle type, rather than just interpreting what i saw from one day to the next was in Scranton, PA.

In Northeast PA SUBARU takes the cake by far. Everyone and there mother has one of those things.
