Which sports car are you??

I've always dreamed about owning a sports car. Not long after I met embee, back in the 70's he bought a Jenson Healey (trying to impress me!!) and it was one of the most comfortable cars to ride in but not at all practical for the girls. We did go on holiday to Cornwall in it once and thinking back I don't know how we managed it, but it was great fun!! So when I saw this quiz over at Carla's I had to give it a go- how about you???

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Whoo hoo I'm happy with this I could be the fastest Grandma in the west-so catch me if you can!!

PS what I don't understand is when I preview this the car looks OK but when published it doesn't fit the page so annoying.

It was a good comfortable car wasn't it and I regretted getting rid of it but Sammi was getting too long from back to knee so we got the Fiat. If you win can I come too?!!!!!! Love

Oh I so want a convertible. However, I did that quiz and... well, I amn a Lamborghini Murcielago - "You're not subtle, but you don't want to be. Fast, loud, and dramatic, you want people to notice you, and then get out of the way. In a world full of sheep, you're a raging bull."

Well that's clearly rubbish. Some of it anyway :)

Nice car, Chris!
I am a Dodge Viper 'You're all about raw power. You're tough, you're loud, and you don't take crap from anyone. Leave finesse to the other cars, the ones eating your dust.'
Hm, sounds about right! (Although I think I tend to take too much from other people.)

Wey hey, I'm a Honda S 2000:
You live on the edge, and you live for the adrenaline rush. You don't need luxuries, snob appeal, or superfluous gadgets. You put your top down, get your motor revving, and take all the curves that life throws at you at full speed. So what if you spin out occasionally?

That quiz is a load of rubbish. I said I was a Porsche Boxter! How the hell can I be a Porsche Boxter? I was expecting one of those blue spazzo things! Miffed.

beccy has good taste. Its a shame that mum never came to SF in all the time I had my Honda S2000 - I am going to get rid of it in less than 2 months and I am heartbroken.

ok let me go an see what I am.

At 10/5/07 15:56, Blogger Sam said...

Hey - I am an S2000 too!!!!!

Just as well since it is the best car in the world.

Ahhh - I love my S2000 I am so sad I have to say goodbye to it :(

Mum? You're a corvette? I thought you had more taste.

theotherbear thanks for dropping over. I've just been browsing some of your back posts, I enjoyed a little nostalgia listening to the abba video (unlike WT).

asha I'm actually not a red person so would not willingly choose this colour now red is embee's favourite colour.

sam I told beccy she'd made a good choice as it was your car- I too wish I had been able to take a ride in it. I would not choose a 'red' car why are corvette's not tasteful??

beccy it must be a sister thing!!

johng you'll have to keep trying until you the desired result!!

enidd good choice you never know what the man will buy you next b'day if you hint loud enough!!

lisa I must remember to steer clear of you on the highway!!

Every Grandma needs a Corvette :)

I'm a Porsche 911...

"You have a classic style, but you're up-to-date with the latest technology. You're ambitious, competitive, and you love to win. Performance, precision, and prestige - you're one of the elite, and you know it."

LOL, OK, I'll go with that ;)

Apparently I'm a Ferrari 360 Modena!!

Great fun. Thanks Chris. (Actually I've always fancied a Morgan myslef though!)

sally I always wanted a morgan, back in the 60's my parents lived at Stone and a morgan club used to meet on there on the village green and it was great fun seeing all the cars.
