I lived in Plano for 19 years.. Drivers are aggressive as hell.. Lots of hot cars on the roads.. People will run you down so they can go another 5 mph faster..
I used to love the tollway drag races before the toll cards came out..
Every street is 3 lanes wide and people are always speeding..
I kind of miss it!

How does that make the person a douche because their parents are successful? My budget for my first car in high school was $4,000 and I am very grateful my parents gave me that. Some are more fortunate than others and that's just how things are. That didn't make me enjoy my first car any less than I did. Maybe it is their reward for getting into college? They don't need to justify their rewards or belongings to others.

What is the Biggest Douchebag Car?

Out here in LA it has to be Prius drivers... also nothing against Armenian people, in fact I have a few Armo buddies that are enthusiasts, but some drive like total d-bags in their leased BMWs and Benz'.

gray 3 series BMW's with tan interiors.

Dodge trucks followed by everything else that's 10ft off the ground and never seen dirt.

Pirus drivers. they speed through neighborhoods trying to sneak up on people and run them over.

If a persons parents are successful and decide to buy them a car, I'm not against that. What I am against is when they try to impose themselves onto you and adopt the sort of: I am more important than you and I am better than you, look at me attitude. Where I live, there are a lot of kids with rich parents and that's fine to me. But it's mainly their attitude that annoys me. One had an L (needs a parent supervisor) and decided to drive to school everyday by herself, another drives 70 in a school zone, one with a Maserati got into an accident and tried to run away from it.

In that case I agree.

I read your post out of context and thought you meant every youth driver with a nice car is a d-bag.

Needless to say the guy is an asshole and if I was the Mazda guy I would have told him to calm the fuck down I though you were having a bit of fun driving a bit quicker. Or maybe shoot him in the kneecap and drive off.
LOOOOOOOOOL

Arguably the two main "douchebag cars" amongst the Okinawa military community are:

Subaru B4 Legacy
Toyota Altezza (1st-gen Lexus IS200 in the States)

These are by far the two most popular sedans (I once saw a barracks on Futenma with *FIVE* silver Altezzas in the parking lot....out of maybe ~20 cars). Both cars are typically owned by people who think their vehicle is far faster and more sporty than it is. Tales of near-stock automatic B4's revving their engines at guys with (for example) tuned R32 GT-Rs and getting shat on stoplight-to-stoplight are so common people barely even mention it anymore.
