Thumbs up If you were born as a car, what would it be ??

Have you wondered about a mechanical equivalent of your self? If you were to consider all your personality traits and convert it into automotive equivalents, which car would you come up with?

This is not a favorite car post, remember. Take a piece of paper and jot down all your characteristics and find a car that suits it to a T.

Eg: Though one of my favorites happen to be the Countach, I dont see it as my automotive reflection. I'm not as short-tempered as an 80's Italian sportscar. Neither am I as suave and sophisticated as an W126 S-class. Similarly, keep narrowing your choices till you find the right one. I'm sure we'll all end up with the weirdest of choices.

And remember, please do not post your favorite cars AND no cheating !

Nothing like precision, balance, perfection and flexibility of an E-39 M5.

Without offence - I think what Manticore is hinting at is the automotive equivalent of what you ARE...not what you would like to be.

Hmmm.....exactly guys. It's NOT WHAT YOU WANT TO BE. What I meant was a car that is a REFLECTION OF YOUR PERSONALITY.

I am very thin, have a voice suited for singing, am pitifully hygenic, and am always energetic.
I am also a little bumbly and absent minded when the times are tough ( read not so great around corners).
So I guess I will be a Honda S2000 then.

Is my choice right???? Can you think of another car to match my characteristics even better?? If so please tell.
