In the mega-hit film adaptation of Transformers: The Movie last year Bernie Mac’s character said something to the effect that… the driver doesn’t pick the car. The Car picks the Driver.

It is with that in mind that we began to collect some information from some very kind Cars and their willing Drivers. The goal was to answer the question, as simply as possible, What Does Your Ride Say About You? In this multi-part series we will be assembling a montage of Rides and their Drivers and occupants in an attempt to explore that question.

The following 10 volunteers have provided their answer to the question, along with our own RideLust offering of what we think. Let’s see what we have here:
