Just a bit of light hearted silliness. Since many here are car nuts, I figured I'd ask for opinions on just what you consider to be an "Alpha Male car". (brodozers don't count) This is about cars.

It's tempting to say classic muscle cars, but that simply labels a man as "old". It's also tempting to claim very high end sports cars, such as supercars, but maybe those guys are trying a bit too hard to impress. The Mustang finds it's way, sideways or backwards into pedestrians and crowds at every gathering, that's not alpha and in control, that's just stupid. The Corvette has the stigma of being a mid life crisis, OMG I'm actually gonna die soon kind of car. The Accord driver is practical, but possibly cheap. BMW's seem to be for nerdy professionals who all too often have no idea how to actually drive a performance vehicle and have never done a track day.

I'm thinking a Jag convertible, or Aston Martin. True car lovers, dedicated to the experience, dedicated to the cars themselves.

Of course, here at the airport, I notice the Alpha aircraft owners generally drive a silver or black mercedes sedan.

I can't recall a car that more loudly screams "Great White in the guppy pool" than this car. All the goodness of a well-sorted, rear drive chassis, and an LS9 with manual transmission... oooh. smile

Wannabe alpha males don't drive cars. They drive diesel-powered lifted trucks and tactical-ized Jeeps.

Real alpha males drive anything they want because they don't care what you think.

I have two cars that elicit frequent reactions from other people. Some positive from enthusiasts, but mostly negative from the general public. It's okay though, as I know that some people can be very petty. I just laugh, as I bought the cars to please me, not them.

My Motorcycles also draw their share of commentary, mostly negative. Again, I didn't buy them to please anyone else.

The only guys Iíve known who owned convertibles were either gay middle aged men or very metro middle aged men. The expensive exotic convertibles seem to be owned by rich gay and metro middle aged dudes.
