I took my wife's SLK350 to a Surveying meeting, and when we walked out after the meeting one of the guys saw the car & asked if it was a Miata. :tazz::tazz:
But you know, it's a lot like the fake Rolex issue. The folks who know the difference can spot them from a distance. And the folks who don't know the difference never will. And what's really important is that YOU know the difference and are happy with the car. I owned a Miata a few years ago and it was a great little car for a great price. Many people are very happy with them. But it's no SLK...No, and no white cane either.
LOL! Tru dat, I just thought it would be amusing to indulge in stereotypes, because so many of them come true in real life.Some folks are just "car ignorant." They can't distinguish between different cars of similar size and shape. They just don't care much about cars, as we do. Some of these folks may listen to NPR and be Sierra Club members -- but many such folks are very car savvy.
As an Endowment Member of NRA, I can most definitely distinguish a Vette from a Jag, but I sometimes have trouble telling the plethora of compact polymer .45s apart, let alone all those AR-15 lookalikes, LOL!On the other hand, many NRA members can tell a Vette from a Jaguar.
I have a washing machine? I wondered how the clothes got back in the closet, but never really thought about it...:biglaugh:Those people most likely drive corollas and camrys...you know, the car as appliance people...
the analogy would be to ask us to identify refrigerators and clothes dryer brands and models without looking at the badge/lettering (and yes, they do have design trends, themes and concepts).
I'll bet the majority here only know that their washing machine is a front load or top load, and probably can't remember the brand unless you bought it recently...(some guys here probably don't even know where the washing machine is...lol...).
ouch-did you ask what car HE drove lol? a receptionist at my work saw my car recently and said it looked like batman's car. :biglaugh:I took my wife's SLK350 to a Surveying meeting, and when we walked out after the meeting one of the guys saw the car & asked if it was a Miata. :tazz::tazz:
