Chewing on paint chips isn't good for you.

There are very few modern Toyotas that I like, but they've made quite a few great designs.

Default what car would you be embarrassed to be seen in?

  • Porsche Cayenne
  • any Mercedes SUV
  • BMW X5
  • GM Hummer
  • Cadillac Escalade
  • and the all-time winner, Pontiac Aztec
Why would people with a lot of money choose to drive these fun-free and ugly things?

I can answer for a few of them...

The Cayenne, at least in V8 form, is actually a fast, comfortable cruiser that actually holds it's own on a race track as well as being able to go offroad vastly more than normal Porsches. They are for Porsche fans that up until recently would have looked to another manufacturer to get a daily/SUV to sit next to their Porsche sports car:







Same with the X5:





Both rigs are fully capable tow vehicles, that can get dirty, offer luxurious interiors, ground clearance, and still drive onroad extremely well.

Pretty much no one bought the Aztek due to it being ugly, though I almost bought one new, as the pricing was very good for what you got OUTSIDE of the looks (the cars were surprisingly well built, and extremely versatile/practical, as much so as teh minivans, but costing upwards of $10k LESS than the AWD minivans they were based on...). The peopel that DID buy them, however, were not worried about beauty pageants and tend to love them.

Speaks volumes ...

Thanks for your opinions. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Personally, I like the feel of the road underneath my butt.
