2003 Cadillac CTS, 2005 Cadillac STS4 1SG
The Poll thread in the CTS V forums about location, age, occupation kinda got me thinking on this one. I noticed several people that posted in that thread were ages 19-23, students, etc. Which overall is a pretty young age to be driving such an expensive car. I dont know if its just my experince, but anytime people find out my age, and then see my car, they kinda give me this look...the kinda ''oh your spoiled driving such a nice car, mommy and daddy bought it for you '' look. Im wondering do any other young people in here get that attitude from other people, people who dont even know you or your background? I try to be as humble as possible, I never tell anyone what car I drive, if they see it they see it, but I mean unless your living under a rock, people will see you and your car. The other thing many people dont realize is my car cost the same as a very well equipped new Mustang GT, because my car isnt new, and we bought it used. I never seem to hear about the kid that drives the new M3, or the girl that got a new Mercedes SLK (yes I acutally do encounter people like this), but I always get that look or that certain attitude from people. So im just wondering, is it just me, or do you young CTS drivers face some steroptypes and assumptions from people for driving such a nice car at such a young age?
