So if you buy an expensive car, does your personality improve as the car depreciates in value?
I’ve been driving BMWs since 1979, and....
I AM NOT A JERK!!
NO REALLY, I AM NOT A JERK.
DONT MAKE ME REPEAT MYSELF.
You and your wife were mentioned in the Finnish study:
This is why I start here, and rot further.
Also over-rated: reaching.
I'm so cool that I don't own or drive a car.
I just have to avoid you lot...
This comes out of the garage when the weather is nice.
Something happens to peoples brains when they get behind the wheel...
Sometimes the "nicest guy or gal in the world" becomes a complete jerk/idiot/narcissistic a hole when driving a vehicle....
.... and sometimes they are that already, it just becomes easily observed from their driving habits.
OH NOOO Mr. Steerforth, you're gonna make BDLH SOOOO mad!
It is really difficult to drive aggressively with a little old Toyota, believe me I've tried.
My only observation is that people with high car payments are not as economically intelligent as people who pay cash for a quickly depreciating asset, (err... liability) such as a motor vehicle.
Expensive is very relative.
I had a rambler, that never had anything wrong with it. I felt snobby with all my friends
whose cars were in the shop or their driveway
all the time.
Now I have a Toyota (used) that I thought was very expensive,
but, I needed it to tow and go camping. So there....
I am anti-snob..probably too much in generalizations for me.
Sounds to me like your car buying habits are based upon practicality rather than vanity.
There are vehicles in that picture?
I assume people who drive flashy cars have something to prove. I am glad I don’t feel that way. I like my basic Tacoma.
I read the article. It appears to be light on facts and data, but teeming with judgment.
Thanks, "science". Thanks, CNN.
Actually, it's quite easy to drive aggressively in a Toyota-the thing is that the car itself won't perform up to the level of aggression applied to the accelerator, so nobody knows that you're unleashing your inner a-hole. It's quite liberating, actually.
They got your click, which is all they care about nowadays. . .
When I drive the CJ7 I wave at all JEEPS, not just the CJs*. I try hard not to be a jerk.
*amazingly there are some CJ drivers that will only wave at other CJs and a lot of the new Wrangler/Rubicon drivers won’t wave at anything. But at the prices those come in at, I guess they are the people cited in the article.
Here, it's always some dumb- ass in a pickup running the red light at the turn to Mall Wart.
Near got cleaned out last snow storm. I had a solid green for my left turn, oncoming traffic was solid red. Lady in an old Chebby pickup blazed through her red like I wasn't even there. I had enough time to lay on the horn and give her a New York salute. She gave me an annoyed look as she drove by.
Had I cut the light as if I were on Street Outlaws they would be pickin' a Chebby pickup out of the passenger side of my car.
