If I was a car, I would be an MGB.
Small but remarkably nippy, still able to turn heads dispite being just a little past it's prime--though maybe needs a spot of maintenance now and again...
And the part of the car - the Rev counter. (Because it matches the sound of the engine - the higher the revs, the deeper the sound of the engine.)
(I'd like to see what your psychological analysis makes of that...) Posted: 04/05/2012 20:02:53Last Edit: 04/05/2012 20:06:16 by John Bayliss
John Bayliss, I hope you're taking this seriously. I need to know why you'd be the rev counter, your own words, and THEN I'll psychoanalyse you. Posted: 04/05/2012 20:07:29

I believe I have improved as I've aged, so I'd have to be a classic car, like the Gran Torino Clint Eastwood owned in the movie of the same name. This also fits the fact that I'm carrying a little extra weight around.
I am by nature overly bossy (I try very hard to limit my bossiness) so I guess I'm the steering wheel. Posted: 04/05/2012 20:12:54
Rev counter because its needle matches the roar of the engine. Though I'm generally quiet by nature, I can roar too if someone presses my accelerator.... Posted: 04/05/2012 20:26:16
I am a blue Jaguar. LOTS of power, prone to repairs. All parts need to be really fine tuned.
Car part: I am a carburetor: A carburetor (American spelling), carburettor, or carburetter (Commonwealth spelling) is a device that blends air and fuel for an internal combustion engine. It is sometimes shortened to carb in North America and the United Kingdom.
I do that often in my life and in my function as healer and teacher: mixing air and fuel/ that is really seemingly different qualities for combustion - in myself or others.

Lotus Europa. Just because it is gorgeous. Posted: 04/05/2012 20:44:06
Interesting topic AND an unmissable opportunity to plug a project I'm working on.
If I was a car, I'd be a green Jeep Wrangler with a rag top. Fun but unreliable and prone to breaking down, I'll try anything once.
If I was part of a car, I'd be the backseat. Obvious, really.
And now my project. Along with two very talented and well known members of this very website and two newer - but better writers, I'm working on a little something called CARS AND GIRLS - a collection of themed noir novellas and shorts that feature ... well ... a car and one or more girl. Each story is named for the featured car:
The 500 is a black Abarth, though, Jue. And the Barracuda is candy apple red.
It should be out this summer. And I may plug it a little more nearer the time. Sorry! Posted: 04/05/2012 20:50:08Last Edit: 04/05/2012 20:52:07 by Trailer Bride

First thing that comes to mind is a Volkswagen Thing. I think they were called Trekkers in the UK. Or, maybe an old pick up truck, the kind with real steel bumpers, like a '38 Chevy.
I would be the steering wheel, of course.
I have to add that years ago, I'd have picked something altogether different, so this is just where I am, now.

@ TB - Happy to see your little plug. That project sounds interesting, would love to read it when done
@ Loz - Ha ha, would you sound like a golf? If you don't tell me which part you'd be, I'll have to form my own opinion during my summing up Posted: 04/05/2012 21:03:54
Actually I might prefer an E-type Jag. British racing green. I would be the engine, the powerful driving force! Posted: 04/05/2012 21:05:01
