Default D-bag cars

Was out with a couple of guys then other night and one of my buddies just picked up a BMW 750. One of the guys made a comment that while it is a great car, it is one of the top ten douche bag mobiles. This got us all rolling, because this guy is kinda a douchebag.

We got talking about other DB mobiles. We came up with Jaguars, range rovers, Prius's, what else is on the list? Certinaly understand these may be regional, but it got us rolling.

Reminds me of a BMW joke.

What is the difference between a Porcupine and a BMW?

A Porcupine has their pricks on the out side.

Nothing to do with the price. Their is plenty of MB, Porsche owners in the group as well. Just more along the lines of the stereo type. I would jump on board with some of the Audi's, Tahoe sure (although I just bought one). Mustang, not so much. As a group they seem more just car guys that DB's.

Up in this neck of the woods we don'g get a lot of exposure to Ferrari/Lambo drivers. So we don't have a big enough sample group. Pot holes and salt kill them! Although as a DB group, we did do one of track days were you do the agility course with Lambo's and Ferrari's. While both Ferraris were faster around their little course, both did break down.

Just friendly banter, no reason for hurt feelings.

There are so many douchebags that I wouldn't know one brand to identify them. If I have to pick one I'll say audi.

Many years ago we had a local mobile home salesman that had a pretty good run for a while.
He bought (or leased) a bright yellow convertible Ferrari (don't know what model)
He and some of his (and my) buddies were on vacation in Clearwater. While everyone else rode together in and Excursion the mobile home salesman insisted on driving his yellow Ferrari.

On their way to dinner everyone was in the Excursion following the Ferrari when they got stopped at a red light. There was some surfer / stoner guys sitting on a bus bench at the intersection and they started pointing and yelling "Look at the weeney in the Fiero!".

One of my buddies happened to be in the Excursion and he said everyone including the mobile home salesman's friends were about to pee themselves laughing.

I have ever since thought about weenies in Fieros every time I see a Ferrari.

Mercedes BMW drivers can't drive down here they drive miss daisy in the left lane or just slam on there brakes and make a sudden right turn or left turn.I like how they start to turn then they throw there turn signal on and they can't park worth a F*** either.I drive a lifted F-250 with 37s I can back my truck right in perfectly between the parking lines these A holes take up 2 spots or they park croocked as he'll and you can't park.And most people that drive them are yuppies now don't get me wrong there are some mercedes that I like.But the people that drive them suck at driving no offense to anybody that owns one don't get me started on the tree huggers that drive a Prius that is the biggest scam every invented.

I think smart car / fiat / volt / Hybrid is almost a different class. More like HUA (head up ass). Difference being they have no idea what is going on.

Mustangs..not 60's or early 70's stangs but a lot of mustang drivers are douches. Key word A LOT. not every. Seems like when I'm out driving all the people that want to race me or are constantly gunning it are mustang owners.

I'm betting the douchebags are usually driving those douchemobiles a little
Too close to your bumper and too fast on the highways too right?

"Biggest DB's" title is more closely related to driving habits than vehicles.

Having said that I'm no fan of that old guy in his big pickup that drives it like he's got a '53 trailer. The guy who veers left over the center line to pull into parking lots on his right. Creeps away from the line on green lights so he can claim to have 22mpg in his 2500 chassis.

Most of the Prius drivers around here seem to have a permanent Priusprsm. They think they are so much better than the rest of us.
