Is everyone that drives a cheap import an asshole?
« on: April 25, 2007, 07:46:47 PM »
So I was driving back from school today on State Road 24, from Ft Wayne to Huntington, and there's this kid in an old beat up Honda Civic that looks like it was from the 1980's, revving up what I suppose you could describe as an "engine", it actually made more of a buzzing noise than a "VROOM!".

Anyway, I have a Ford Taurus SHO with a 3.4 liter DOHC V8, so I was like "You have to be kidding me!", so the light turns green and I feather the gas and let him start putting his way ahead of me, then he turns and laughs, so I punch it and go flying past him.

Some people just don't have a clue do they?

Anyway, his girlfriend was in the car (hard to believe these people can find a mate), and I'm sure the amplifiers in his trunk were worth more than the car.

Hey, i am one of those people that drive an old Honda Civic. Yea it doesn't have the get up and go as my geo storm does but it is good on gas and in a lot better shape than most cars of 20 yrs. not a dent or rust spot on it.Yes we do have a big speaker in the trunk and yes it is up loud. My son is 23 and loves to listen to Lamb of God and other groups like them. Yes i also like to listen to loud music and i do sing along. But i do have to agree with sdcabincrew74 about the drives of the suv's being bigger butt holes. I gues they think just because they have a big vehicle that they own the road. By the way i live in Indiana and not too far from Ft. Wayne. right down us 30 from it.

SUV owners are usually compensating for something or trying to act like a badass soccer mom.

I've owned an old Civic (wagon) from the '80's, a Toyota Corolla from the '90's, and still own an '89 VW Cabriolet.  I can tell you that driving small cars is not all that bad.  Being able to make a U turn in the middle of any residential street, fit into half a parking space, and getting 35+ mpg around town isn't all that bad.  So what if they don't have the acceleration of a bigger engined car.  Around here, I can barely get up to the speed limit before coming to another red light.  I'm not saying I prefer to drive those cars over my Avalon, but they sure have their pluses.  Also, the reliability of an 'import' can't be beat.  BTW, most small cars have been built in the US for years.  I know Toyota has been building its Corollas in CA since the early '90's.  Honda's been building Civics here for years, too.  I'd take a Japanese brand car over a comparable American brand vehicle any day!

I've seen more assholes driving Mercedes Benzs and Beemers than those with cheaper imports.  People with Jaguars are the worst.  I'd like to shove the hood ornament up their ...... oh, forget it.

All cars suck.  Ride a bike!

Ha! I was gonna support the premise that everyone who drives a CHEAP import is an asshole, quite the opposite of those of us who drive expensive imports! LOL - we are considerate, kind, give more to charity and support causes that count. we are sexier, sweeter, and will rock your world...lol

Is everyone that drives a cheap import an asshole is like asking Are all HIV+ people sluts, drug addicts and trash.

I drive a  import subcompact Honda Fit & it certainly wasn't cheap for the size car it is. It will be paid for in 2 years & I get really good fuel economy & my insurance is 380.00 a year less than my previous car, an 04 Mazda 6 S with a big v-6. The Fit gets  34 mpg in town and 40+ mpg on the highway & it is an ultra low emissions vehicle.

Yeah, but I really prefer the get up and go of a decent sized engine, that can get you out of a fix too you know?

That and I'd really hate to be in a wreck in one of those sardine cans.

I've been filling up my tank on E85, it's about a quarter a gallon cheaper than gasoline here, and it doesn't affect the mileage a whole lot.

For the size car that I drive it has some pretty good crash test ratings. http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/ncap/cars/3844.html sure it only has 109 hp and 115 lb ft of torque & I have to "plan my moves in traffic accordingly. I miss the power my mazda 6 had & some of the comforts of a larger car. I don't drive that much anymore so the Fit serves my needs pretty well. I  have had the car a year on April 21st and have only put 9500 miles on it.
my "tin can" has 8 airbags, abs, & electronic brake force distribution.  I feel safer in the Fit than I would have in a Mini Cooper or some cheaper Korean made car.

 :oREALLY, HOW DARE YOU, BITCH :o

Besides where I come from a Jag isn't an import - so there. :P

So says John, who's really quite proud of his 3 litre mincing machine :D
