LOL, my neighbor across the street has an old MGB and he's always got something wrong with it. It sounds like crap. I've had to help him push it back into the carport when it stalled out in the street! actually, come to think of it, I haven't seen that car in a while! maybe he got rid of it finally.

My very first car was a Fiat 950 sport. I of course wanted that car that my dad bought for 200 dollars and fixed up. It was the time of 90210 and I was in high school at the time. I know what you guys are thinking...stupid...stupid, but it was that or my parents ford granada. So of course it was the biggest POS car I ever had. In fact I ended up taking the bus more than driving the car. Examples of how crappy this car was include but not limited to.. the battery blowing up. Chronic overheating issues, that was not my fault. I drove around for months and finally realized it had no thermostat. The accelerator cable broke. The window mechanism was the most complicated, convoluted mess of cables. The spark plug broke in the head. and on and on.. I finally got rid of that POS and got me a 82 mazda RX7 which drove great.

lol.. read some of the comments on the website. I don't agree with everything they say.. i believe there are snobs for EVERY car. Camaro's included... just not C5er's I mean, i see some Camaros with SUPER load exhausts just speeding past everyone... Small enough P3n15? It's like giving everyone the finger as he drives by. Save the racing for the track buddy lol.

True, there are snobs for every car. I'm driving with my brother last saturday night around Winston-Salem and I see this early 90s 5.0 mustang (the ugly teal green color) with a huge unpainted hood, skinny tires in the front and fatties in the back. I drive by him while he's at a stop light and give him a friendly nod. what does he do? He revs the heck out of the car and just glares at me. I'm thinking what a jerk, trying to be nice and he's got to try to show off in front of his girl in the car.

Goblue,

Thumbs up to you. A Bimmer refers to a BMW car. Most people incorrectly use the term Beamer - which refers to a BMW motorcycle.

Mustang owners are the #1 most despised in my book!

That must be the old volkswagen owners,because the new ones have no problems complaining about an issue with their cars.But c'mon everyone knows you get the last year of the model...by than most of the bugs are worked out.Plus VW has gotten better..two years in a row they've nominated the VW Golf and VW GTI car of the year....

I despise Corvette owners the most though. Around here the only people that drive them have gray hair, sun visors, and are on their way home from tennis. They constantly drive 10 MPH below the speed limit.
my hair's not gonna be gray for A LOONNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGG TIME buddy.

Miata owners (male)- LMFAO! They nailed that one I had an Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite up until last year, so I can attest to the British car owners . As far as the Camaro, I'm nearly bald, and don't own one piece of jewelry
