I like the one about the Oldsmobile particularly - imagining a make of car that purely exists and circulates through theft. (After being built they're just parked outside the factory with the keys in the ignition)

A couple of questions for anyone, seeing as it's obviously an American list:
1) What would the British equivalents be?
First ones that come to mind:
Morris Minor: I'm very fond of my flat cap
BMW 3 Series: I'm a playa, honest
BMW 5 Series: Highway code? What highway code?
BMW 7 Series: I'd drive faster but my Rolex keeps blinding me
Rover 800: I'm attending a photocopier sales presentation
Vauxhall Cavalier: I'm giving a photocopier sales presentation

2) Where are the SUVs?
When I was last in America I started a personal vendetta against the things... see:

I refuse to acknowledge the existance of those death machines (SUVs)! I also don't believe in "minivans" and the tooth fairy, though I'm willing to bend on the tooth fairy issue...

Of course we must also consider what it means to choose no car at all. There are places such as New York City where owning a car can be a drawback - there are no parking spaces, everyone drives as though they had never touched a car before, and so on. There are also environmental concerns. Lastly, there are people who would rather not own a car precisely because of what is says about them!

Some more Thoughts from Car Drivers:

Citroen BX: I like to keep the RAC busy
Citroen XM: Individuality is worth the running costs. Just.
Ford Escort (Early): I don't give a monkey's
Ford Escort (Late): Every time I drive past a Ford dealer it costs me a monkey!
Ford Scorpio (early): I am a minicab driver
Ford Scorpio (late): At least sitting inside I don't have to look at the thing.
Mercedes C180: I can just about afford a Mercedes, and I always park nose-out on the drive so the beighbours can't see the engine badge
Mercedes C Class: I want to drive an S class, but at least I am exempt from all parking legislation
Mercedes S Class: Get out of the way, I own this road
Saab 9000/CD: I want you to think I'm richer than I am
Vauxhall Vectra: I have backache and I drive like a nutter
Volvo V70: I wish I had the Turbo

Utrecht in the Netherlands is another place where it's not worth owning a car (just to park outside my own house costs NLG30 = £10 a night). And also, renting them here is very cheap if you have to move a sofa or something. And moreover, I'd rather ride my motorbike. That probably says something about me, too!

Any brand of Minivan: I am married and have at least 3 kids, a dog, and am running errands. please move.
Any (normal) brand of SUV: same as above, but my SO is a Yuppie, so I can afford to be trendy.
Chevy Suburban: same also, but I'm arrogant, so move. NOW.

I have this niggling doubt in my mind about Ford. I mean, they keep telling us how they spend millions coming up with catch names for their cars, then they give us the Crappy, Fiasco, Scrote, Mundane, Pube and so on. Is Wayne Kerr really in charge of model names at Ford?

Anyway:

Fiesta (old): I wanted a car but couldn't afford one so I got this, which gets lower excise duty than a massively cleaner 1.3 Polo, hahahahahahah!

Fiesta (newer): I wanted cheap, reliable, stylish transport. One out of three ain't bad.

Fiesta (newest): I am the living proof that however ugly Ford make a car, peoiple will keep buying it. But will someone please introduce the man who designs front ends to the guys who do passenger compartments and tail ends some time, before the car looks any more ridiculous?

Transit Van (White, New): Speed limts are for wimps!

Transit Van (Rusty Doors): I'm on the way to a car boot sale - want to buy a video recorder, only 50 quid, got it from me old mother as passed away last week....

Transit Van (Rusty Everywhere): Well, luv, I've fixed the blocked gutter but you need some slipped tiles replaced and the pointing on the front wall is breaking down, and the soffits need replacing - I can do it all for you, it'll only cost you fifteen grand, but that's cash, mind...

Why? Why would driving one of the five best cars ever designed make you a hunchback beggar? I'm 6'1" tall and drove a Mini no problem, yet I can't get in let alone drive many new cars which are significantly bigger (e.g. Vauxhall Astra, any Ford smaller than the Scorpio, which is so pig-ugly I woudldn't drive one anyway, absolutely any Japanese car except the biggest Lexus and so on).

Right on. The most fun car I've been in was a mini, and that was full of six of us, Three of us being over 6 ft tall, hacking down the A3 from Milford to Guildford.

Our record was 19 air cadets in one Mini - but it was a Mini van.
