The car you drive

  The Car You Drive…

Alfa
Passionate and romantic, you fancy yourself. A bit unreliable, and can be eccentric too. You hate BMW drivers, but think and act just like them.





Audi
You would like to believe you are part of the new generation that is caring, environmentally conscious and family-orientated. Actually quite boring; nothing more than a glorified wuss. Will one day probably drive a Merc, but you still sometimes wonder if you shouldn't have bought that Bee-Em.


BMW
Self-centred, ambitious, dynamic and assertive. Can be a big show-off pig. Likes impressing too. Buppies and kugels past sell-by date. You think you will be CEO one day. Actually an office weenie who thinks you are God's gift.



Daewoo
Faceless, subservient and demure (except for Matiz drivers). To you, a good deal is to work from nine to five, get nothing for it, and still say thank you. And then you wonder why you don't have money for a time after hours.


Fiat
Cute self-confident girls climbing the corporate ladder with ball-breaking as their hidden agenda. Will take everything you own if she divorces you.


Ford
You still live in the 70's, trying to cope with the 90's (don't even mention the millennium). A loyal, diligent worker, but baffled by office politics and labour policies. Next car will probably also be a Ford.

Honda
You aspire to drive a BMW. You are an opinionated pain-in-the-butt. The ultimate suffragette, or the boss's girlfriend (male or female!).



Isuzu
You like the smell of diesel and have secret fantasy of being a truck driver.





Hyundai /Kia
Quite progressive, intelligent and practical. But misguided. The kind of person who will suggest a sub-committee to find solutions to what the committee couldn't. You will always maintain that a Korean car is better than any Japanese model.
Jeep
You would like to believe you are living the American dream and just love the great outdoors. The closest you get to it is by watching Days of Our Lives and the Adventure Channel.


Land Rover
You are a designer person with a designer life, who always pays too much for everything. Designer mud comes free with the badge. You're a closet colonial racist and have fantasies about the Queen. If you have a Freelander, it was probably a break-up gift from your ex.

Mazda
A Ford driver with less money. Mostly staid boring with no image and less imagination. Lots of retired people drive Mazdas. You're in the way and should get off the road.


Mercedes-Benz
Responsible, immaculate and conservative. Boring CEO clones with too much money, or the office super-geek who can't remember what it's like to have fun. Definitely not dating material.



Nissan
Good, solid, responsible, loyal office-fodder. You like to travel and maintain that you can sell ice to the Eskimos. Favourite answer: "It's a company car."


Opel
Wannabe Schumachers. Would like a VW, but fell for the bumf about German engineering. Always in a rush, but never get anything done. Kicks BMW 3 series butts because they can. Spend all their money on trying to keep it going.


Pajero
Not as label-conscious as your Land Rover counterpart, but still suckered into believing in the ultimate Paris-to-Dakar, African adventure. You drive through puddles to create your own designer mud. You believe you've made the grade, but everyone else knows you've got a long way to go.


Peugeot
Thinks France is the best country in the world and bores everybody with your limited French knowledge and tales of the Louvre and the Sourbonne.




Porsche
Smalldick





Renault
An eccentric who likes doing things the wrong way around. Usually the one who asks all the silly questions at staff meetings. You fervently believe you have flair, but it's less than that of a French cookbook. Most probably gay.



Ssangyong
A make-believe fool, because you'd like a Pajero but can't afford it. Don't actually know that the engines are made in India and not in Germany



Toyota
Although there are thousands of them, you mostly can’t spot them in their zero-image cars. Toyotas are good, reliable cars and are bought by a wide variety of people who have zero personality to go with their cars and are basically chicken-shit scared people who will never take chances and will therefore be driving Toyotas forever.
The most zero-image car in the world?, ... a white Corolla

Volkswagen
Highly overrated for dependability cars since the days of the Beetle, but they do have a good re-sale value. Usually practical, sensible people who like to drive fast where nobody can see them. They are usually loyal to their brand to the point of irritation due to the fact that they lost their virginity on a Beetle's back seat.

Volvo
As square and safe as the car





Proton:
“Unoriginal, uncreative copycats, who like to blast their in-car stereo system so that they can’t hear any rattles from the doors and dashboard. The models define status, which means a Perdana driver is always thought to be financially better than a Wira driver, but of course this is not usually the case as all Malaysians have the same amount of financial crisis. 70% of them drive their Protons fast when they probably shouldn’t. 99% of them buy Protons because of its easy financing. 100% of them say they buy because they are patriotic, out of which 90% are lying.”



Ferrari:
“Designers who don’t drive as good as they design. Mostly fashion designers who think Italian, eat Italian and speak Italian, but they are probably British or American ass holes”


Lamborghini:
“Let’s face it, nobody keeps a Lambo forever. Stinking millionaires who sell their Lamborghini only a year after they buy it, just to impress their grandchildren, “Granpa used to own a Lamborghini once, look at this 30 year old picture. My hair was as full as its V12 engine back then”

Skoda:
“Tasteless continental freak”


Rover:
“Want a Honda, but don’t like Japs, so they buy the British version”

Perodua:
“Favourite reason – “I love small cars!”. Unspoken reason – “I can’t afford a Proton”

  Hmm.

I like Mercedes, my father and most people in m family as well.



I kind of resent the fact that people who have some money are automaticly labeled as assholes.

  HaHa! I thought it was interesting that maybe a third of the makes listed aren't even available here. Also the stereotypes in our culture are somewhat different. If an American list was made up the descriptions of the drivers personalities would change (for example: Chevy Corvette. small dick).

I have a mercedes 6 speed C230Kompressor, and I'm not conservative by any stretch of the imagination. I also have a toyota corolla and I'm not void of personality. at least I think I'm not. lol

I'm with Christophe on the rich asshole thing too. I've known plenty of poor assholes in my day : )

The prob with linking personality to cars is usually that these things are written by people who don't have the money to buy the more expensive types which results in making those people look bad because of jealousy, I wouldn't know any other reason.

Same thing with saying bussinesmen are assholes. They probably have more money than the people who say that but why does that make them any worse than somebody else.

you have evidence of this ? the income brackets of those who have written these things ?

who said businessmen were assholes ?
although I have observed quite a lot of anti capitalist sentiments from quite a lot of western europeans here at gt.
matj excepted of course.

You reminded me of the '73 Bug I used to drive around. I made my way across the entire western half of the US in that thing. Over the continental divide, scraping frost off the inside windshield so I could see (they had bad defrost systems), up narrow dirt roads in the southern rockies, out in the backwood forests of Oregon. Good memories of that lil red bug!

* my Corolla has 270,000 miles on it and is still going. And talk about chick magnet. It's like reverse polarity. I drive up and they run! LOL!
It's old enough that I can work on it. Ya can't do that anymore with the new cars.

Yeah, it's just a shame you can only get to certain places. So much of Atlanta has no train service even close to it. So we get huge rush hour problems and road rage. I just think we'd be better off having a comprehensive mass transit system here.

>I drive a Saturn.

I'll pray for you lol!

  There's nothing quite like riding a late friday night train with the other Rhondderites licking their lips at the prospect of returning to their shanties and caves and clubbing themselves a new wife.

But seriously though folks the trains aint all that bad. apart from being late, smelly, overcrowded and fully of wacky woos
