You can either make one yourself or have others suggest one for you. Doesn't matter, sounds like a fun little game. :D

I'd be an old truck. My body looks like hell, parts are broken, things creak and groan, but I start every morning to get work done.

I'd like to think that I'd be an old Packard coupe. There'd be some primer showing through the original paint, but I hope I"d have enough dignity left to remember my road manners...

Probably the OG Saab 900, non-turbo. Idiosyncratic, northern, flexible, ponderous, lazy.

Too many and yet not enough
Probably a Focus ST. Kinda useful, kinda sporty, kinda quick.

My Volkswagen 411 might be the perfect representation. Never truly worked well. Farty. Slow. Still broken. Always broken.

I think I’ve finally settled on what I would be. An SUV.. A little too big for what it is but really only good at one or two things.

I am open to suggestions. No matter what I think I would be, it doesn't seem like the right fit.

I'd be one of those mid-late 70s personal luxury coupes. Massively overweight, constantly gasping for air, not much power, but oh so cushy.

350Z. Looks weird; overweight; not the fastest or the most nimble but enough of each to have fun; reliable but impractical.

I don't actually like the 350Z :unsure:

Currently I commute on bicycle
I'm thinking Alfa Romeo 156, probably with a twin-spark engine. Somewhat good-looking, a bit idiosyncratic, Mediterranean at heart, but a bit sloppy and not exactly reliable. And somewhat cheap.

I could go on and say not as desirable as it once was, but then, the 156 is still desirable, just to a different type of people.
