Yahoo article basically calls Chevy owners idiots....

http://autos.yahoo.com/articles/auto...ays-about-you/

Not sure how accurate the article but sure does look down on chevy, especially the last line

Wow. I wonder what scientifically-based polling was used to get those numbers?

Never before have I seen so much superficial bullshit condensed into one article. Most people don't have the money to buy Rolls Royces or Bentleys, including the author himself, I'd wager. Or else everyone & their mother would have one.

No, he (the author) probably drives a Prius.

Your car implies more about your life than you might think. While 13% of Chevy owners don't use the Web, by contrast, less than 3% of Honda owners remain in the technological Stone Age. The antithesis of flashy, Honda owners are usually pragmatic and well educated; 70% boast a college degree or higher, compared with 35% of Chevy owners and 45% of Ford owners.

Since I own both Chevy and Ford, where do I stand?

Does anyone think it is strange that Yahoo rips on an American company while they endorse Chinese communism with their willful restrictions on Chinese internet users. Evidence to this point starts with the lack of an answer to whether there is censorship in China. Wired calls Yahoo the strictest censor in China. With a reputation like this, it is no surprise that Yahoo hates American businesses and capitalism in general.

Hey you guy's quit picking on me. It's bad enough being a Ford and GM guy as it is. I mean seriously I am so confused I once drove my Silverado while waring a Ford hat.

Talk about confused.

I've stepped out of the Subaru wearing a Corvette logo on my chest. I know how you feel and probably the looks that you get.
