What is the character of your car?

Time to duck out of politics, douse myself in anti-viral and return to civilization (-ish...this is BP-OT after all. The definition of Fuq-all) and have a little car fun.

Most of us have driven quite a few different cars all of different capabilities and characteristics which have satisfied us, vexed us or been mediocre experiences. The question I'm asking here is this: If you had to humanize your current car or any car that you've owned in your life, what would that look like? Please post a picture of the car or it's representative and the human character it would be. If you want to post an explanation for us...it would be greatly appreciated by all.

I'll start. VW Scirocco Mk2. My first 3 cars. All but one totaled as I was still young and honing my driving skills. We were all up to race anything, anywhere, at any time. All in Mexico, of course.

None of the wrecks were my fault!!

I keep looking at an R8 or NSX or (name your silly car here), but never actually buy one. I did own a 2007 Z4MR and sold it once I started driving it with the DSC completely off. Driving a Mr. Magoo car is for my own safety.

My 633CSi was like my old cat Miss Cal. Lightning fast, but would turn and bite you when you least expected it.

E90 - looks tough and mean, but actually very kind on the inside. Also fun to be around.
B8 S4 - person with fashionable clothing and no personality. Into pulling some dick moves on to you. Jerk in other words

M2C - Rinzler, from Tron : Legacy. Badass, but I always feel like it wants to kill me.

NA Miata - A sloth. Slow as hell, but fascinating.

I'm trying to have a more relaxed presence here. The snowflake population here is increasing. Go to politics and see for yourself.

Not just here. Country is turning to a world view not pretty. Gonna take a lot of snowflakes getting their rights taken away they actually care about before will realize majority rule is immoral. The wants of the many dont trump the rights of the few.

The fact that I think that my vehicles have a moody character doesn’t make me less toxic) I can still say that my vehicle has a personality of a cracked hoe and still be toxic)
