Q & A

Q:  Why does one talk about their car, it is seeming only folks that own a porche or corvette (or the like), they refer to their car as, for example, “someone ran into my corvette” instead of “someone into my car???  Ever notice that????

    • LMAO... I had a guy that picked me up for a date one time with his porche. He worked at State Farm and was impressed by the rate of insurance on his porche. The whole date was about his porche. While I like porches myself, I wasn’t giving into his leading hints that he kept wanting to talk about his porche all night...kind of ... Read Moremade the Dan McKlusky’s dinner even sour on my stomach. Ughghgh...

      lol...

      Needless to say I never accepted another date from him. All I could picture was a marriage day in the porche. Drop down the top to let the preacher give the vows. ha aha... I feel sooo sorry for the person that married that guy, if he ever did get married!! :P

    • We don’t have names for our vehicles but we do for the Bike.  Actually, when I was in my 20’s I drove a piece of sh*t mustang and her name was “Scrapper“.  Not because I was proud.  LOL

    • You have got to be kidding me?? Care for their car more than their kids or wife?? WTF?
      We own a souped up antique street car, we refer to HER as the Tbird. We have thousands of dollars in her, and yes if someone runs into it...it WOULD be more devasting than if someone ran into my brand new 2009 car! And if someone did run into one of our cars, the first question out of someones mouth when I was telling them about it would be...which car??
      The Tbird (as we call it!) cannot be replaced! But NEVER has our car come before our kids! So yes, call it what you may, but to me this all sounds like jealousy!   JMHO!!

    • Yes Termite...you are right!  If somebody has an issue with something for no reason it usually is because they are jealous.  

      I cant wait to have a new car.  Never had one in my life.  I may never.  But as the story goes, with all of our 5 vehicles, one of which is a 1967 442 Olds convertible, anyone would ask which car.  Just makes sense.

      xoxo

    • We call our truck the “truck” and the jeep ‘the jeep’ and the bikes are the Harleys (my Harley is named Eva) but I think that is simply a way for us to distinguish them form one another -  

      term - a friend of mine has a vette and pointed that out to me - that they all wave to each other - simliar to motorcyclists - kind of a club with no formal members - I think its cool!

    • well when my hubby had his Porsche..and it got totaled, I said my hubs porsche got wrecked. It had nothing to do with being better than anyone, it’s what we called it.

      He was very proud of it and worked his ass of to get it when he was in his 20’s. It was not a brand new one when he got it and he never had anything handed to him. So if he wants to say his Porsche got totaled, then go for it.

      I called my jetta my jetta, my montana my montana.  

      When i had my 69 camaro...you bet i called it my baby camaro. I worked hard for it.

    • lol... I soooo hear y‘all!  My chevy blazer is called my Red Barron, but it has nothing about using prestige of a car. When I talk to my Dad about repairs needed to my car, I often do refer to it as the Red Barron. lol...

      It has a meaning to my Dad too...he went to VietNam and loved the tale of Snoopy and the Red Barron.  The car got passed along to me from my Dad to my Mom to me.  It has a lot of luxury features on it so I felt the Red Barron was fitting for it, besides the fact that it is red too.

    • Another reason......Americans have always been obsessed with Big Iron...a huge source of pride.

      Many Americans have luxury autos parked in the drives of their not so luxury homes.

      If there is only one chance to make a first impression....then rolling up in an Vette, BMW, Toyota...etc. seems better to most than rolling up in a “car“.

      My dad personally drove beaters all his life because he didn’t want to be judged by his choice of car......what he didn’t realize is he WAS being judged by choosing to drive those beaters!

      So ya just can’t win...estatic
