Anyone in a cage is a douchebag.
Yep! In the 50/60/70/80's, Standard family cars could NOT travel 130MPH. That is easy with a new car and almost every car can do 100-110, even a new Bug. Cruising at 80 is easy, silent and there is so much crap to distract you from the road including 200watt stereos, mp3's, cell phones, GPS, bluetooth, seat warmers...
Very little is done in the way of actually TEACHING the responsibility of driving. It is more of "Get your license so I dont have to drive you everywhere" and then "they" grow up to be adults. bastards!
PT Cruisers...definitely! I have totally lost count of the times some overweight middle-aged+ woman is on her cell phone or chewing down another double cheeseburger and has just about run me off the road (and I could be driving a delivery van, they just don't care), but will glare and scowl, "How DARE you be on the same road with me". Totally the car of the middle aged, "Daddy didn't buy me sharp car back when I was a teenager, and I am still angsty about it, so I am 'entitled".
On a trip I told my wife, "Next PT Cruiser you see, check the driver, I am telling you, its going to be driven by an overweight, middle-aged blonde woman, she will be on her cell phone, eating, or applying make up". My wife said I was stereotyping and it she didn't approve. But, the next PT Cruiser we saw, her only comment was, "Holy Shit...."!
Hahaha-you hit the nail on the head! I see the same thing where I live. Those PT P.O.S's would also have the faux wood paneling on the sides too...
In general those vehicles and the Chev HHR are just butt ugly any way you look at them
Or every gaudy piece of chrome you can imagine.
I pulled up to the bank yesterday to use the ATM...what is parked right in the middle.....a PT Cruiser, with extremely douchey looking flames on it, and custom douchey interior. The dude in the driver seat gave me a "whats up nod" like he was hot shit.
I was thinking "really, I am on a KLR, you think I give a rats ass that your PT Cruiser has every custom POS on it"
my one question for any of these custom rigs is "did you buy it that way or did you fuck it up yourself"
The PT Cruiser...the second ugliest vehicle ever produced....
whats the first you may ask???
The convertible PT Cruiser....
You need to add a few more choices
pretty much any of the "snooty" cars. Most of the d-bags driving them think they are God's gift to humanity and that their shit doesn't stink....
Any car that had the little wipers on the headlights. WTF are those for?

Anyware wealthy people live. I lived in Monterey for 5 years and worked at pebble beach.
I've had cig butts bounce off my jacket, cut off, cell phones, 16 year olds in new high $$$ cars almost hit me. No concern for anyone except themselves.
Most of these folks are woman in SUV's. Didn't realize there was so much off-roading and snow in the Monterey area.
Don't even get me started on the people who go to Squaw Valley to ski, at least I'm in my truck.
The first one is a little too much... but the second one is good. I need one of them.
Without a doubt... Subaru drivers. Prius drivers are a close second.
I'll take 'Harley stickers' in the back window regardless of what they're driving.
Ride with their heads up their rectums and drive the same way.
Anyone who purchases a car with the parking assist, or the brakes that automatically apply when a sensor detects something, or the other car that makes your seat vibrate when it detects something behind you.
That is reducing the amount of attention these drivers have to pay. It is not a safety device. It is a license to pay less attention to driving.
No, we think of you as "the little people".
The SUV mom with the cell phone mom is number two in my book. More for unpredictability than for general ass-hattery. Used to be number one until after a few trips back from the coast in Summer. The Dodge Ram guys towing a trailer full of quads from the dunes would get my vote now.
Behind a long string of cars with nowhere to go and you really have to ride 3 feet off my bumper at 60?? Really?? :huh
The "nobody cares..." sticker is a contradiction in terms, isn't it? People seem to care quite a bit, so much that they have a sticker stating that they "don't care". :huh
..I so want it to be Audi. I have a TT Quatro and everytime I get behind the wheel I become a self absorbed cock. It is so fun to drive but it takes every bit of self control I have to not think of everyone else on the road as the little people. Seriously though; I dont know about the rest of the world but the Audi/BMW/Mercedes drivers in my neck of the world are surprisingly decent drivers. I have found that people in big ass 4x4 trucks that think they are driving a slot car are the ones to watch out for.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Nice avatar. Top Gear never lies, you cant help it when you drive an audi, you just become one...
I'd have to debate that.
I drive my wife's Q5 the same as anything else.
I'll pull a trailer full of junk to the dump or throw the roof rails on and go pick up a dozen 2x4s.
I do get some weird looks but haven't ever gotten any that would indicate I'm a douchbag though.
I do wash the dirt off it before I go home if I was out scouting out trails to go visit on the bike so she doesn't know I was doing that.
