Don't encourage them, I say. Having the same or similar class of vehicle is as good a basis for friendship as Herpes is for a marriage. I always found car model clubs bizarre as anything, and I'm heavily self-censoring...Someone in a Sport, going the other way, honked and waved at me last week, and I was caught off guard. He/she was already past me by the time I realized what was going on, so I couldn’t return the wave.
Also, someone in a Wrangler waved at me last week.
I mean there is a history of this already. Range Rover sport is a small range rover. Iirc a Santa fe sport was a small Santa fe.Kind of like naming the Ranger, “F-150 Sport”……..WHAT?!!
