Dirty Hippies

The 1960′s gave birth to many wonderful things. We put a man on the moon, muscle cars were invented and someone out there invented the electric can opener. It was a time of technology and forward thinking, but somewhere along the lines hippies came into being, and well… that was just plain annoying. They were dirty, stinky and drove bad cars and what was even more annoying than that was that they gave birth to other little hippies who grew up to also drive bad cars. It’s a travesty I know, but one that we can’t avoid. Below is a short list of modern day hippie cars that have the capacity to make the performance car enthusiast want to slice their own wrists.

• Toyota Prius
Hippie Cars

We all know that Prius drivers want to save the planet. We also know that they love stuffing their ideals down the throats of other motorists. Keep in mind however that this doesn’t change the fact that the Prius is one of the crappiest cars on the road and that most car enthusiasts would rather dip their genitals in boiling vinegar then be seen driving one.

• Volkswagen Bus
Hippie Cars

It’s the original stoner-mobile and has helped generations of pot smokers get their wings. They’re built like a shoebox, painfully slow and ugly as sin, but that doesn’t change the fact that millions of hippies the world over see these little German tubs as the end all, be all of the hippie nation.

• Subaru Outback
Hippie Cars

A favorite of the old hippie crowd, the Outback is the car for those who want to seem politically correct in today’s world. It’s well built and versatile with just a hint of rebellion built into it. It’s no VW Bus mind you, but make no mistake, roll the windows up in this baby and you can toke it up with the best of them.

• Volkswagen Jetta Diesel Wagon
Hippie Cars

The Jetta Diesel Wagon is the car of choice for those young urban hipsters who think that driving a diesel will help them save the planet because a marketing team told them so. Sure it’s fuel efficient and will get you looks of praise from old toasted hippies throughout the world, but dear God, enough already.

• Nissan Leaf
Hippie Cars

Say hello to Nissan’s all electric mess of a car. It’s slow, will leave you stranded and at the end of the day, has an electric range of about 6 blocks. The real good hippies out there will tell you its the greatest thing since sliced bread and that we should all be driving electric vehicles. However they always fail to remember that these little suckers came over to the U.S. on boats that dole out more CO2 emissions than the entire state of New York…

  2. MrAngry says:

    I just didn’t want to go buck-wild with the VW’s…

  3. Dude says:

    What’s wrong the the Outback?

  4. Mike says:

    So why exactly do you hate the Jetta Wagon? It gets good fuel economy while being able to still be a fun car to drive. Seems like the best of both worlds to me.

  5. MrAngry says:

    You know what Mike… I withdrew my statement that I hate the Jetta TDI wagon because simply put, it is actually a great car. I should have said that it’s simply not my style instead.

  6. I picture hippies driving anything VW. Prius I don’t think is a hippie car; I see a lot of trendy, glamorous types driving Prius nowadays including celebs and models etc. Even in So Cal. Most people here don’t drive Prius because they are hippies but because it seems like it’s the “trendy” and “in” thing to do now. Seriously. Same thing with organic foods and yoga; it’s not hippies partaking but people driving Benz and BMW who only do it for health reasons.

    im sorry but the old VW typ 2 with the two tone paint (cream white/red or mintgreen/forrestgreen) is a really goodlooking car now not the fastest one ever or the most efficient but a nicely done VW typ 2 can be really really nice

  8. Rob says:

    I take it you’ve never driven the Leaf? Hippiemobile though it may be, I think you should take another look at it. It is far from slow – in fact, it feels downright quick when compared to most cars in it’s class. It’s no Mustang GT, of course… but if you punch it it will certainly respond. As for range? 100 miles may be tough for the average driver… but 70-80 is cake. Most folks drive far less than that every day. As long as you have a conventially powered car in the stable for long trips, what’s not to like?

  9. and so you have named 5 cars I hate to see in front of me in a no passing zone. The only thing worse then the 5 named above would be most Buicks.

    Wrong. “Hippies” absolutely do not love cars. Most do not even drive cars. What the blogger has here is a list of automotive stereotypes that could apply to the socially conscious upper middle class.

  11. josh o says:

    Actually, this post in general seems kind of arbitrary and ignorant. Is ridelust.com just a content mill?

  12. JR says:

    This is a horribly-written post. Of course, car enthusiasts wouldn’t like the Prius, which isn’t designed for them. It’s marketed as the most fuel-efficient hybrid in its price range, and it delivers on this promise better than all its competitors do. That doesn’t make it crappy. Man, you’re a complete imbecile.

  13. Maggie says:

    So being more aware of your own negative effects on the environment make you want to slit your wrists? It’s ignorant, redneck americans like you that scare the hell out of me. Where are we headed as a society with bullshit spewing idiots like you? My only hope is you aren’t reproducing.
