I drove a holden.

Yes, today i drove a holden.

And what i found most interesting is that i found most ford drivers to be complete tossers..

Am I normaly like this ?

when im in my fairlane no one tail gates me, and no one pretends i'm not even on the road.

Today in my sisters holden, there were situations where i couldnt even slide a cigarette paper between this car and an overtaker/tailgater.

why is there so much hostility??

In all my ford driving years ive never seen such bad attitude drivers as today when i drove a holden.

Whats the deal people?

Maybe it was just a bad day, I can't see guys actually having a go at you while you are driving. Hell, we even get waves from guys driving Commodores when we are in the XR. Even from dudes in Clubbies!

I generally find Commo drivers the worst for aggro driving but everyone loves the Juice so I get nothing but thumbs up from everyone except the EPA

Holden drivers are dangerous

An old bloke in a standard looking commodore tried to run me and my XF off the road once because I was looking at his alloys....

Holden drivers always acost me everywhere i go.

They seem to get realy upset if you eyeball something they have done to their car.....

Whats with that?

Hmm, I thought it was the firearms visible on the inside of the roof, parcel shelf, and dash?

Seriously though, when it comes to aggressive or bad attitudes, from what I have experienced it generally comes down to your driving style / courtesy / common sense. The only exception to this rule is if you are a FullSchickMoit(tm) riceboy, in which case you deserve any and all negative attention. :s6:
