Is there some sort of control they can put on the exhaust to modify the sound? There is a Mustang that we see when we are out walking that's all decked out with Mustang stuff. Sometimes it's REALLY loud going by, and sometimes it's MERELY loud.
I'm amazed at how many people said pickup trucks (big ones). I'm also amazed at how many huge trucks I see locally that are black, polished, waxed......they look like they have never been off road, on far,, to a construction site or on a hunting trip ever. Usually when I'm being tailgated by a Ford F-350, the truck shines more than my mom's Audi A6.
I think that guys buy those trucks to speed and tailgate but mainly for the sole purpose of going to the mall within city limits to buy boots that never see dirt.
A whole lot of people are not realizing how goofy they look playing SuperTrucker or exposing issues with self-esteem. Having grown up with a farm, scrap yards, and having to drive pickups and real trucks, I'd rather drive your mom's car.
No, just drive really really slow in my Lexus Camry in front of you. Because I know you wouldn’t tailgate me when I’m in my rusty F150. Then again maybe you would? I don’t know.
The only thing that I can come up with on the charger/Challenger thing is they have to be incredibly cheap/inexpensive right?
Because if they got anywhere close to the cost of one of the new Corvettes , well , wouldn’t you… You know… Kind of go for the one that has a good chassis and motor ? (Asking for a friend…)
I don't have one, but if I had my druthers, and I had to be involved in a wreck where a Ram Diesel, and BMW were the participants, I'd rather be in the Ram. I'm not particularly enamored of what statistics say would be the outcome, because I've seen what it is right near my house!
Dangerous knuckleheads drivers in your locale are usually driving what ?Here ?
10/1 over any other make.
And, if it’s on the freeway ? Probably a third of them are chasing some other dangerous, unskilled waste of skin driving a - you guessed it - Moparmobile.
What about where YOU live ?
I’m not a Subaru owner. But I know that one of their biggest marketing points is that they are safe. The numbers on that link are drivers with prior MVAs on their records. Did your “study” control for the possibility that the Subaru owners specifically bought Subarus after an accident, based on increased desire for safety? I would think that even at fault drivers who want to be safe could not necessarily be labeled as careless, dangerous, a**holes. I’m personally more worried about the folks who buy full size SUVs and trucks “to be safe”. Subarus fit neither of those categories. Just sayin’.
