    Me, well......

    Ford: Well I seem to see these everyday but the coolest thing I've ever seen from them guys is a Saleen Mustang. That car IS THE BOMB!!!

    Chevrolet: Too... Many... Corvettes.... AGKKHHHGGHH!!! ::dead::

    Pontiac: In addition to the many Grand Prixes and G6s, I've seen at least 3 Solstices. Pretty cool cars but them compared to a Firebird are total pieces of shit. Except for the Solstice. I like 'em both.

    Porsche: I've pretty much only seen Boxsters but I did see a Cayman.

    BMW: I've seen pretty much every BMW in the past 5 years, but the Mini Cooper (yes they make that lil' car) pretty much freaked me out. I bet I can't even fit in that thing.

    Mercedes-Benz: Too much of those. Needs a SLR McLaren to make me wanna live there any more. (not that I'm moving, but...)

    GMC: Worst. Chevy. Impersonater. Ever.

    Saturn: The Ion is probably the best Saturn car ever. no doubt, my friends.

    Honda: Probably a College Graduate's car. dunno, it's cool but I see to many college students driving it.

    Toyota: Best. Cars. EVER.

    Land Rover: uh, cheap?

    Jeep: reminds me of WWII. BECAUSE THE WRANGLER LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE ONE!!!

    Lexus: a poor man's car. really.

    Infiniti: same with Lexus

    Nissan: Best. Trucks. Ever. (sorry Chevy)

    Mitsubishi: I believe I saw a Lancer Evo 7 Rally Version before. dunno where, but IT WAS THE SHIT! (in a good way...)

    Mazda: Probably makes the best Tuner cars ever.

    Lamborghini: My sister claims she saw a Gallardo at work. I don't think so.

    That's all I can think of... for now.

    I don't think I pay enough attention to traffic to notice different cars.

    Around the neighborhood?

    Guy Next door: Toyota Celica and a Chevy S-10
    Guy across the street: Ford F-350 and some kind of small Toyota pseudo SUV.
    Other guy across the street: A Mercedes Benz - it's a few years old, not sure what model.
    People next door on the other side: A Chevy Malibu, a GMC Tahoe, a Chevy Siverado, and a white Corvette Stingray that only comes out of the garage to wash it every couple of months.

    There a plenty of Jeep Cherokees around here. If I could recognize more types of cars on sight, I might noticed other things as well, but the Cherokee is one of the few I've learned to be able to pick out.

    Various models of SUVs also abound, though I'd actually have to pay attention to the names on the sides and/or rears to tell you which particular models are most common in these parts.

    I live in the boonies. And the nearest neighbors are asshats, so...I really don't know what they drive.

    Fords, Chevys, Hondas, Hyundais, Jeeps, Chryslers, Land Rovers, Porches, etc. etc.

    There is a guy around here who owns a Kandy Orange Lamborghini MurciƩlago, and another guy who owns a red Countach. (Sideswipe!)

    Seen it all so can't really say anything. Hell, even saw a 288 GTO, F40, F50, and Enzo in a line before, that was great. But I must say this might be one most retarded things I have heard.

    Its a POS car. The Saturn Sky(Built on the Europeon Speedster Platform) makes that comment stupid. The Sky itself is a pretty dam nice car. Its just a European Roadster with a Saturn tag on it.

    Living around here in the middle of Missouri, over half the vehicles are trucks. Not little namby pamby SUV's, but full-sized Dodges, Fords, Chevy's and GMC's. And they're usually in the extended or crewcab configurations. My Honda Element feels so small when stacked up these behemoths. I tend not to feel bad since a full tank in my Element costs half to a third as much as theirs :D

    I see lots of Vette, Range Rovers, couple Ferraris, couple Vipers, few 911s, Jags, BMWs, Mercedes and then all the other regular cars and trucks. Saw a FordGT the other day. Very impressive. I saw a Diablo in the Circuit City parking lot a while back. Kinda interesting to see that kind of car in a CC parking lot.

    More cars:

    Dodge: seen a couple of Vipers. NEVER saw ANY Dodge cars from the 60's and 70's other than in Video Games like Need For Speed Carbon.

    Ferrari: heard some rumors that there are some Ferraris in Point Clear.

    Jaguar: not so rare near where I live.

    Scion: pretty much rarer than a Toyota Camry. They're EVERYWHERE!!!

    Volkswagen: pretty popular. I see at least 20 Volkswagen Beetles every day. Those things are weird. and cheap.

    Alfa Romeo: Same as Ferrari.

    Aston Martin: Same as Ferrari/Alfa Romeo.

    McLaren: ... woah.

    EDIT: Hyundai: Pretty much a common car where I live.

    Lot of crazy-small cars around here. Trackers and Smart cars as far as the eye can see.

    Me? Yellow and black tracker. I call it The Cheat.

    The Sky, Solstice, and Opel GT are all built on the Kappa platform in Delaware. The Sky was styled after the Speedster/Lightning, but the FR Sky otherwise has nothing to do with the MR Speedster/Lightning.

    Whose comment was stupid, exactly?

    Wow, a CAR related thread and I didn't post it for once. Surprising.

    In my own driveway, I have my Honda Ridgeline, my Mom's Toyota Camry and my Dad's F-150. I have two neighbors who have nothing but old (one restores and races old Chevy cars) and new Chevys. Actually, most of my immediate neighbors drive Chevy vehicles (including two Buicks from one neighbor). At work, I see the full spectrum of "middle" class cars, and a few high end ones. There is a yellow C5 Corvette and a few other similar cars.
