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 don't drive, I fly.
FIAT Tipo

Vaguely Italian with a Polish undertone, larger than it needed to be but reliable and gets the job 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...

S203 M271 and a ton of crap
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:

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.
