Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on May 18, 2012

Warren, George Will, in his column last Sunday, basically says that if someone drives a Prius, they are smug and pretentious. Do you agree with the underlying concept — that we can judge an entire group of people based on what they drive?

I agree that people do judge entire groups on what they drive. George Will was talking about the book “Engines of Change: A History of the American Dream in Fifteen Cars” by Paul Ingrassia

Paul has been around the auto industry for a long time. Instead of just giving stats, Ingrassia talks about cars that belong to people. You might do it with dogs. You will see a dog and an owner together and say they belong together.

Read the book and let me know what you think.

BTW – Prius owners, when they are driving in 75 mph in the carpool lane, are smug and pretentious – just in the wrong way.
