About This Quiz

When you really think about it, all of us get judged based on the car we drive. Is there anything that shows our personality more than our cars do? They really are extensions of ourselves and who we are. When someone gets a new car, or even a used one, their first thought is usually something like, "Is this car reliable and can I afford it?" And then their next thought is often, "How cool am I going to look in this?"

We all think about what our cars say about us - if you say that you don't, we know that you are lying. Even if you have a car that doesn't stand out in any way, that says something about you too, mainly that you don't like standing out in any way. Just think about it, some cars say that their driver is desirable and sexy, others say that they like to go fast, some say that they are rich and successful, other say that  the person driving it is tough and hard-working,  and still others say that they like to enjoy life and have fun.
