Default What does your car say about you?

On my way to work this morning and a guy in a Porsche drove past- I was daydreaming out the window and took one look at him and thought 'What a twat!' Then saw a guy drive past in a beautiful jag (the new one) and thought he looked quite cool although must be overpaid and think hes James Bond or something.

So what does your car say about you or other people?

Any generalizations we can make?

Not sure what it says about me but my prefect car in the world would be a mini cooper (an original one ideally) in red with a union jack roof. Ideal car here- still mulling over and FJ.

Absolutely nothing. It's just a car, not an extension of my personality.

I really don't care much about them, as long as what I am driving is decent and reliable.

Mine says I'm a boring plod (according to Millhouse).

Mine says I'm a safe, cautious, responsible fellow who bought with a good eye on resale value (according to myself).

Can you guess the car?

Wouldn't be caught dead with one. They're rather tacky.

I would have put money on Ethos having a Volvo estate- with a grate thing up for the hounds in the back and a knackered Landrover for knocking about in the countryside with room for the guns in the back.

Don't know what mine says about me...well, maybe "Company car" it's a Pajero. lol
BUT, the right one would be a Maybach.....
