Camry?

What's up with Camry XSE drivers? They seem to think their Camry are race cars just because its got the black roof and dual exhaust. Almost all of them I see drive very aggressively, weaving in and out of traffic and WOT at the stop light. Most are driven by middle age men, probably making up for other inadequacies.

You probably just notice more aggressive ones since there are more of them as a whole than almost anything else. I doubt you notice the beige ones that drive like an 80 year old grandmother.

this

its got like 330 hp and fairly quick but honestly the prius drivers are the worst out here. most the camry owners are of a certain stereotype anyways and now since it;s "cool" ( I say that knowing full well if you told me to shop for a midsize it would be the first thing id look at)
Its selling fairly well.

You'd be surprised how capable the XSE is.

Really? I haven't seen any being aggressively driven. I love how they look, especially the ones with a red interior. Mmm!

I think regardless of the car, specific subsets of drivers are spurred on by an aggressive looking car like the BRZ/FRS.

Around here, it's typically Subaru Forester drivers or ANYBODY in a Toyota truck.

sometimes people spend their entire pay checks for some jdm credit and then get mad when a middle class adult buys a faster car with more doors. they need a safe place to vent.

Isn't it sad when a motherfunking Camry smokes a 86?

Strangely itís just the XSE which is why I brought it up. Donít quite understand why this particular model seems to be driven by granddad Andrettiís. Maybe itís just me but I see that the ones driving SE and other trims seem to be ďnormalĒ

You don't know what your talking about - them middle aged men have the "blue pill" to help them make up for their inadequacies -
