    but is it worth the barrage of small penis jokes that will ensue?

    Anyone noticed that the profile of the 1st gen Viper looked like Krusty's shoes?

    I dont know, for me cars are a pretty big deal as far as material possessions go. I enjoy them, and within reasonable limits, dont see anything wrong in someone paying serious cash for one he likes.

    For others its nothing more than a necessity, but they can also be a big passion or interest.

    The only reason it would not be worth it is if you actually are hung like a baby. [​IMG]

    Living in LA I find the young girl's driving the X5's to be the biggest Beemer driving douche's on the road.

    As for the overall king of frustration on the roads it's the guy driving in the fast lane at 45mph in a beat to crap Chevy Astro Van.

    I've found the biggest douches are people in the "lower powered" versions of luxury cars, like the BMW 325 or 525 and the Benz C280 or E320. Of course, I know of several people's grandparents with E320s and wouldn't classify them as douches.

    Entry-level BMWs also seem to be favored by homosexual men.

    I also wouldn't call waspy mom (525) or asian moms (E class) douchey.

    E-class wagon is the anti-douche.

    My ford taurus.

    Kidding. I think it's the driver, not the car. Just like Abercrombie /= douchebag immediately, although with certain models, the percentage of douche certainly does seem to rise.

    Hmmm...I agree and disagree, for example. Picture those raised, black rimmed, Ford and Chevy full size trucks with the fully tinted windows and "Skin Industry/Famous Stars and Straps/Tapout" slogans on the rear window that every "bro" drives.

    Here's a pic:

    I mean, look at that shit. Do you really need to see who the driver is before you can make an accurate decision about the inherent douchebaggery?

    That's a good point. There are some that are definite signs of douchebaggery. For example: that truck you just posted is a great example.

    I was thinking more along the lines of an entire line (like BMW) can't be called douches on that one thing.

    Personally, I think any of those racing cars, like Fast & Furious with the uber-tinted windows, lowered to 1/2 inch clearance, like 1991 Honda Civics with rims and decals... that kinda thing always = douche.

    I agree with Lance on that.... plenty of cars scream douchebag, not just about the driver but anyone within a 10ft radius! Some examples.... (seriously I went to images.google.com and searched "car_model" + douchebag

    Mercedes-Benz 450SEL 6.9 or the 300SEL 6.3.

    You sir, are a true car nerd. Those things are bad ass.

    Gas mileage on that thing is what? 1 on the highway and 0 in the city?

    According to this, it averages 12 MPG, which is not bad at all:

    You could probably beat a lot of fast modern cars with the 6.9.
