    "what this car says about me is that I don't care what you think about my car (or about me, it it's my car that informs your opinion)".
    My thoughts exactly.  

    Although it grows hard to hold to that sentiment with a car that's a rolling mouse hotel.  Out here in the country, parking outside, my car belongs to the mice and occasional squirrel.  Mouse shit is all over the place, no matter how often I vacuum it, and last week I found a stash of acorns under the passenger seat.  About once a month a mouse falls into the heater fan while it's going full blast, and I have to take apart the dash and carefully fish out its carcass before it begins to putrefy.  The fan blades are of course a bloody mess.

    So yeah, I don't care what people think about my car.  But it is a bit embarrassing to have to brush the mouse shit off the passenger seat when I give someone a lift.  :(
