Fair or unfair, wrong or right, we tend to use our possessions as a way of self-expression. We communicate not only through words and gestures but in the clothes we wear, the art we choose to inscribe (or not) on our bodies, the holes we make in our skin and what we fill them with. They say as much about us as our words and actions. Whenever we invite someone over to our house for the first time, we all the time run like a man possessed before, ensuring everything is clean and tidy and in order, and that our house says all the right things about us.
Whether we like it or not, the same is true for our cars. Everything from the condition of the paint to the way we drive it makes an announcement to friends, family and strangers alike. Here is your car (or car) may say about you …
I actually need to take better care of myself
Your car tends to be a reflection of your lifestyle. If your vehicle is pockmarked with minor dents, bumps and scratches. If it hasn’t been washed all year. If it is filled to the brim with fast food takeout, empty drink cans, or half-eaten leftovers from a child’s yogurt pot, your car may be screaming that you need to slow down and take better care of yourself.
I’m very shrewd and thrifty
An old car does not need to be a signal to the world that you have given up. Granted, a car that’s 20 years or more old, but with the utmost care (even if it is not classic car) is a sign of extraordinary thrift and discipline. This shows that your car is meant to be a long-term investment and that you have done your due diligence to ensure it is correctly maintained.
Just because I’m an old man does not imply I’m not cool!
There is an unfortunate stereotype that requires people to turn in their cool card on the day their child is born. But understandably, lots of parents of all ages refuse to accept the assumed truth that simply because they’re parents does not imply they are not cool. You will often find these hip cats looking inward New RAM trucks for sale. They manage to make sure that they get the practicality they need without compromising development.
I’m the boss and I do not care who knows it
You work hard, you play hard, and you wish you had at least some cool toys to display for all of your hard work under the neon lights. You clearly spent some money on your vehicle and you treat it like your pride and joy. Some people may worry that their vehicle is too flashy, but you aren’t. You’re the boss! And you do not care who knows it.
I care about this planet
Finally, in this new era of environmentally conscious vehicles, many of us are choosing to wear our green credentials on our sleeve. We drive electrical or hybrid vehicles, and ensure that our choice of bumper stickers reflects our environmental passion!
You can expect to find these vehicles parked outside organic or whole food-based grocery stores.
