The Car You Drive...
Sent to me from a BA XR8 ute driver. I got to one point and just burst out laughing. Guess which point..
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.
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
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
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
Cute self-confident girls climbing the corporate ladder with ball-breaking
as their hidden agenda. Will take everything you own if she divorces you.
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.
You are the ultimate on-road wanker. You think your 80s model Commodore is
a V8 supercar, OR you think by owning a Barina you're a true Holden fan.
You're either a redneck or a way-too-standard family parent - but either
way, you most likely drive like you're the only person on the road. You're
even ignorant enough to argue that the new Commodore is better than the new Ford.
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!).
You like the smell of diesel and have secret fantasy of being a truck
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Small dick or mid-life crisis.
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
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.
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
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.
As square and safe as the car
