Car demographics...

I'm on vacation right now, so I've really noticed how car demographics vary from state-to-state. For example, in So. Utah, I regularly would go days without seeing a Volvo. I'd estimate them to be less than 1% of the car population. But now, I'm in Seattle, and ever since mid-Oregon (and everything North of it) I've been seeing Volvos everywhere!! They seem to be about 10% of the car population here!! In addition, though the G20 is the least-common Infiniti where I live, I see a disproportionate number of G's in Seattle compared to other Infinitis.

Also, in So. UT, 95-99 Sentras and 98-2001 Altimas are prevalent whereas here I am seeing hundreds upon hundreds of 91-94 Sentras and 93-97 Altimas!!

It's very strange! Anyone else take a cross-country road trip and notice this? :?:

you kidding me?
i lived in a college town for my whole life until i went into the AF (Tallahassee FL, home of FSU, FAMU, and TCC, three colleges)
the only sub-$3000 cars i saw were driven by my friends and i, and the some of the students at TCC, the community college
remember, daddy pays for all in this day and age

but yeah, in south FL, it looks like the truck of choice is Dodge, where in north FL chebbie and Ford duke it out
I love going fast.... it's the crashing and burning that sucks

i wish i knew now what i will know in thirty years, that would be nice...

the 'net has warped my fragile little mind
