    Thread: Axis versus Allies - your car edition.

    1. 05-10-2012 10:16 AM #1
      So my last "tell the car lounge about your cars" thread became way too much work - here's a new take.

      Based on the cars you have owned, are you Axis, Allies, or Switzerland. Give yourself one point for each Allies car, and subtract one point for each Axis car.

      If you end up with a positive score, you're Allies. If you get a negative score, you're Axis. If you wind up at zero, you're Switzerland.

      Only street driven cars apply - your Honda lawnmower doesn't count. Cars that you've owned that have never had a tag on them don't count either.

      Brief history reminder, for people who don't know who was who (bcuz 2 buzy txting in class).

      Allies:
      U.S.A.
      Britain
      France
      USSR
      Australia
      Belgium
      Brazil
      Canada
      China
      Denmark
      Greece
      Netherlands
      New Zealand
      Norway
      Poland
      South Africa
      Yugoslavia

      Axis:
      Germany
      Italy
      Japan
      Hungary
      Romania
      Bulgaria

      For the purposes of this thread, we'll use the corporate home nation as the nation of the car, EG - a MKIV GTI is still German (Axis) even though it was built in Brazil (Allies).

      The recent MINI's are German, classic Minis are British.

      GM-era Saabs are American, Pre-GM Saabs would be Neutral.

      For me, it's been:

      Honda -1
      Chevy +1
      Ford +1
      VW -1
      Jeep +1
      VW -1
      BMW -1
      Lexus -1

      So I am -2, Axis.

      Which side are you on?

      Ford: +1
      Chevy: +1
      VW: -1

      So I am Allies by history, but I have the feeling that as my life progresses I will go to the dark side.

      Also, idea: if you have a Swedish car, instead of it counting zero, it should bring your total one point back to zero either way you are. So add everything up, then at the end if you're, say, -3 (Axis) and you have had two Volvo's, you are now -1. And vice versa.

      France + 2
      Germany -3

      USA +6 (I presume Saab counts as GM)

      We'll count GM owned Saabs as American, Pre-GM Saabs would be Neutral.

      I'll add that to the OP.

      Chevy: +2
      BMW: -1
      VW: -1
      Subaru: -1
      Chrysler: +1

      Total: +1

      ALLIES

      With Boats: +6

      My Mazda6 was built in Michigan at a plant shared with Ford. My previous Subaru was built in Indiana. I think I just exploded your poll.
