10.) VW GTI Mk. IV
Suggested By: MKIV_GTI_Turbo
Why you should watch out: Testosterone-saturated young men drive late-model GTIs, and that guarantees them a life of speeding tickets, crashes, drug deals, drunk drives, back seat impregnations, and more crashes. Expect to find one lowered, with a body kit, and halfway up a tree.

9.) Lifted Pickup Truck
Suggested By: Sportwagons, haulin' stuff and haulin' balls
Why you should watch out: Best known as a "bro truck," this is another young dude ride of choice. It's a recipe for disaster.
There are only so many kegs you can carry in a pickup bed before people start playing beer pong in there, vomiting all over the upholstery, and driving it into a lake.

8.) 1990s Pontiac Grand Am
Suggested By: owen-magnetic
Why you should watch out: There is no good reason why 1990s Pontiac Grand Ams have become the car of choice for first-time hoons. They're not stylish, they're not sporty, and they're not particularly fast. They do, however, get spun out into ditches every day of the week.
If you see one coming up behind you, pull over and let them by.

7.) White Vans
Suggested By: E.T.'s Bicycle
Why you should watch out: The ubiquitous white Chevy and Ford vans are better known as "creeper vans," "stalker vans," and "pedo vans." That's all you need to know about them, really.

6.) Any BMW
Suggested By: FCV96
Why you should watch out: The international hoon's vehicle of choice is the BMW. That means that these things are drifted around roundabouts and into trees from Alabama to Uzbekistan.
Moreover, an old E30 or E36 3-series is about as cheap a car as you can buy that's from a luxury carmaker, so you find tons of these things getting driven by small-time dealers and aspiring kingpins everywhere. Expect to see them on the evening news.

5.) Bentley Continental GT
Suggested By: Troll is English for Troll
Why you should watch out: The rich and privileged deserve over 550 horsepower, whether they've gotten any training as a driver or not. If you see one in baby blue with a platinum blonde behind the wheel, pull out your camera because someone famous is about to do something dumb.
4.) Subaru WRX
Suggested By: Earthbound and Down
Why you should watch out: The Subaru WRX is one thing: cheap speed. This just means that when the driver does inevitably crash, he will be going faster when he spears off that wicked, twisty road out past the frat house.

3.) Toyota Camry
Suggested By: Pure87
Why you should watch out: Despite their bland reputation, Camry drivers are the worst in the country. You can find them backing up in the supermarket parking lot, screaming at their kid in the back, and obliviously crashing into your car.

2.) Fast and Furious Honda Civic
Suggested By: joesbagofdonuts
Why you should watch out: Amazingly, there are still old Civics yet to be stolen and crashed! It's hard to believe but there are still a few of these Hondas screeching around apartment complexes in the bad part of town, getting hotboxed, and serving as trusty, reliable steeds for people doing dumb shit.

1.) A Rental Car
Suggested By: Reverend Dexter
Why you should watch out: The fastest car in the world is a rental car. It's not your car, your business trip finished early, so why not go offroading in this thing? Let's take some jumps, baby!
