The driver loves the car loves the road loves the driver...

Via Dustbury, we get a link to a column in which a Dr. Orbuch claims that your car is not only a public statement of the inner you, but tells the world what you'll be like in a relationship.

Since she doesn't say that "2-seat roadster" = "Moody loner who wishes the passenger seat was a credit delete option", I wouldn't give it too much credence.

So what does a beat up '86 Bronco with a a rebel flag on the roof say?

I like to think it says "Get out of the left lane before I push you out".

Yeah, I hear you Tamara, that passenger seat would be better served by a proper luggage and grocery rack.

I thought an SUV meant the driver is likely to be either very tall, or very fat.

I drive a WRX but the car only says to others that " I can't afford a really good early mid-life crisis car and bought a Subaru instead."

I still wonder about your motivations in life - you scored higher on the Life Quiz than I did - you can't be that much of a " moody loner." :)

What does a ratty, race-stripped, loud Dodge Shadow standing on the tippy-toes of it's suspension say, other than it's owner enjoys bounding through fields at 60mph?

I agree Tam,
And the article said nothing about the guy who drives a 10 year old pick up truck.

The guy obviously never looked at the technical simplicity of a hybrid to see the advantages.

So many poeple assume the hybrid owners are environmental folks. Not so. I see more hybrids in our parking lot at the big oil office then I see anywhere else.

Tam,I don't know what kind of car you drive but if I had to guess it would be a porshe 911, slightly beat up, that could beat the hell out of 99% of anything on the road.

The passenger seat in my '79 Chevy should be a rifle rack. Hmmm....

A material possession defines the inner me? Hardly.

A vehicle needs to do 2 things: Stop when you step on the brake, start when you turn the key. (Mine is beginning to have problems starting.)

Everything else is a waste of money.

Oh, it's all nice, just not a reflection of the inner me. If it says anything, it is that I refuse to make a car payment.

Actually, a '98 Z3 2.8 in silver w/black interior.
