Sometimes you just want to shout at the world.
Loud and proud.
No matter what the circumstances.
“Here I am! This is me! And this – yes, you guessed it – is my Toyota Corolla!”
If that’s not the mentality at work here, I don’t know what else could explain the need to advertise the driving of one of the world’s most ubiquitous vehicles.
A vehicle that has sold over 40 million copies, and comes with a 1.8-litre engine making 132 horsepower. And, just to be clear – it’s a previous generation of said vehicle.
The human psyche is a jungle.
I’m reminded of the recurring 1990s SNL skit with Will Ferrell playing the maladjusted dad who references his generic mid-size sedan during heated arguments with his family.
“I drive a Mitsubishi Gallant! This is serious stuff!”*
*Other vehicles included a Dodge Stratus
Given the enthusiasm needed to pull this off, I’m curious about what other braggy models I might encounter in my travels around the nation’s capitol.
If ‘Corolla’ is a thing, then why not?
