Who is driving that Car?

Driving to work along a very boring road I got to wondering and guessing who drives what kind of car. My starter for ten (all seen this morning!!)

Tigra - Young lady/successful/nice suit

BMW - Young single man/suit/sunglasses

Ford Mondeo (old style) - Old man/angry face

VW Passat Estate (new) - Someone who is very late and obviously immortal

When you see a car can you guess who might be driving... Over to you

Latest shape Renault Clios, especially black or silver ones, seem to be driven by attractive young ladies 9 times out of 10.
Something to do with Va va voom no doubt.

Remember the Batman fights with "Pow", "Thump" etc. appearing on screen as they fought?

I can't stop seeing a fight in my mind of blacksuited rabbis with "Oy Vey" and "Mazel Tov" popping up .



Here's hoping that no Krav Maga experts know where I live

I quite like the new Volvos, they are being driven more like Saabs used to be. Quietly making progress and not upsetting people.

I drive an old Passat and I try to be courteous to other drivers but I get frustrated by the drivers who obviously own the road irrespective of what they drive.

Someone who thinks a car is a necessary evil for getting from A to B rather than an exact expression of his identity,
who saves his spare shekels for flying rather than buying tin status symbols, who believes that one's adrenelin rush should be got from recreational activities rather than from putting the lives of fellow road users at risk,
who thinks cars are a boring consumer necessity on par with a washing machine.

I drive a clapped out Vauxhall Ashtray Oiler Estate.
When people ask what the horrible rattling noise is I reply " Oh it's just ten grands worth of loose change rattling about in the footwell!

An interesting observation on Clio drivers: both my 19 and 21 year old nieces drive new-style Clios, and the 16 year old is already checking available colours for hers later this year.

Clio's are renowned as being totty cars. Corsa's are generally still totty however less classy (ie a cheaper date).

Nova's are always, without fail, driven by chavs who need a slap.

Ford Ka's are either young totty, or someone who'd be regarded as 'Mutton Dressed As Lamb'.

Suzuki vitara's - hairdressers car - regardless of the sex of 'em

Fiat Multipla - surely only owned by the blind.

I could go on but I won't.

I think we touched on this once before, but, my tuppen'th worth:

New Mini: Twenty something females with long straight hair and usually damned attractive.

Old Mini: Skint student.

Saxo: Late teens female who has bothered to go out and buy her own car instead of relying on her mothers...

Toyota RAV4 or any sub-prime 4x4: Thirty / forty something female on the school run with sunglasses on her head even when its a foggy November morning.

Vauxhall Zafira: Bloke with too many kids

Of course you're not a hairdresser....... , you're a "hair engineer".
