Funny, I've had relatives living in New Canaan for over 30-40 years. All they have ever driven are Subaru's, the whole family. I guess the lost district of New Canaan is more down to earth.

I agree that NC is more down to earth - the people who lived there 40+ years likely aren't as wealthy as the newer crowd. Also, there is a big Subaru dealership in Wilton - I nearly added Wilton to my list just to type Subaru because there seem to be so many in that area. Nissans too.

If we're going strictly with cars, and not SUV's, Audi is the winner in New Canaan. MB is second, BMW a distant third, and then everything else(Lexus/Volvo/Porsche/Etc.).

On the SUV front, Suburban's(!) are still king in NC. If Karl Chevy were to close shop, then that would probably change.

SO true! That is why you need a weekend car. A vintage Mercedes convertible, of course

LOL! Let me guess, you must have seen that old turquoise blue MB convertible down in the center of town yesterday.
