What Car Do You Drive?

Wed May 04, 2005 6:12 am

Many people say you can determine what type of person one is depending on the car they drive... Just to give us an idea, What kind of car do you drive? I drive an 04' Nissan Sentra Spec-V (see the Se-R Thread). Lets be sincere, Its ok if you drive a chevy nova!

Actually MGA has a point.
Owning a 1990 Honda says that you are frugal with your money and rather spend lots of money on more important things such as property, higher education or travel to far away places for extended periods of time.
No one buys a Honda to make a statement at least I'd hope not.

Oh yea! As opposed to the ‘real’ cars Pontiac manufactured like the Tempest, Ventura, the original LeMans, and the venerable GTO. (well, now the Aussies re-brand a Holden with some power and call it a GTO).

I drive a Silver 2001 Chrysler PT. Cruiser Limited Edition. My wife drives 2004 Silver Pt Cruiser Limited Edition. It ended up being such a great car for us that we bought another one in 2004. It doesn't take much gas, the 2001 model is a little under-powered, but the 2004 has more kick in it. It is also the first car that i have ever owned that can fit practically anywhere.
