What Kind of Car Are You?

I love cars. I can tell stories about the ones I have been acquainted with. I even won a writing contest one time writing about the car my dad helped me to pick out. 

So, I fell for taking this test. This is the kind of car I am, evidently. What do you think??!

I'm a Lamborghini Murcielago!

You're not subtle, but you don't want to be. Fast, loud, and dramatic, you want people to notice you, and then get out of the way. In a world full of sheep, you're a raging bull.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.
