Default What kind of car does your neighbor drive?

Just wondering what kind of rides people have in their neighborhood...

For me it is:
-BMW X5
-Audi A6
-Lexus RX330
-Volvo XC90
-Bimers of the 3 and 5 series
-M-B M-Class
-L-82 vette
-H2
-Boxter
-and then there is this guy...

he has about 4 other cars that are in his garage now... I don't even know all of them...

No, it'* a suburb of Flint, MI. Flint and the surrounding areas are 100% GM (OK, very close to 100%!!). GM owns Flint (or did at one point in the 50s...has been on the downfall ever since). Most everyone gets the GM discount, but furthermore, the loyalty to GM is like none other. The 3800 is a local favorite because it'* manufactured at the GM Flint engine plant. Of course, the die hard workers (and with very good reason) drive what they build!

Funny story...2 days ago I had to stop at the quick oil change place to get rid of some anti-freeze (from my radiator failure on my 93). It'* a 6 bay operation. I walked right in around the cars to talk to the "lubbie" and took a quick browse of all the engine compartments and every car was 3800 powered. 3 Bonnevilles (1 NA, 2 SC), 2 LeSabres, and a Grand Prix. All were Series II.
