How about a little fun here:
If airplanes were cars, what plane would be what car?
Why do you feel the way you do?
Here are some of my choices:
Boeing 737 (series 300-900)
Would definitely be a Honda Civic.
Reliable, simple to operate, and are very common.
Would have to be an original Volkswagen Beetle.
Sheer brilliance of design, easy to maintain, lasted for generations, built in mass numbers, first vehicle for countless operators.
Mazda Miata or BMW Z3
Small hot rod. 'Nuff said.
Built like a tank. Will "smoke" just about anything out there before or since.
