Only afforded by the rich, and then I must pay them subsidies on top of that when they buy one. Funny how that works out.

I'm sad for you because your narrow mind doesnt seem to comprehend the fact that other people exist on this planet that dont have the same likes and dislikes as you do.

I'm not that type of person. I lurk the big city streets at night in an old Grand Marquis.
I'm so glad I got to read this

I'd be embarrassed to be seen riding in any car being driven by a crappy tailgating/no-signal-using/inattentive/not going with the flow of traffic (pick one/all) driver.

Other than that, I don't care

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

Early - mid 70s AMC Gremlin, Hornet, or Pacer.

Inexcusably weird, and not in a good way.



Foreground: Gremlin background: Hornet



Pacer, thy name is fugly...

Several years ago my daughter had an early 1990s all white VW Wolfsburg Cabriolet convertible that I tended to stay out of. It was just too "cutesie" for my tastes.
