I was the fat kid in high school. There, I said it. In fact, I was what you'd call "unpopular" — I'd never get invited to the parties, never got the date with the cheerleader and most certainly never drove the cool car. But all that pent-up pain and angst finally has the opportunity to release itself this Saturday with my high school reunion at Como's in Ferndale, MI. You see, a reunion's the perfect place to finally get one's comeuppance on the "cool kids" — whether it's through losing weight, taking the cheerleader with you or driving a cool car. I'll be trying to do all three — but for purposes of our loyal readers here at Jalopnik the a priori issue at hand is the car. And luckily, I happen to, as an auto journalist hack pundit blogger, have a decent number of options in front of me. I've narrowed my choices down to two diametrically opposite vehicles — the Jeep JT concept and the new 2008 Corvette Z06. Now here's the fun part — I want your advice as to what you think I should be rolling up to Como's in and then later today we'll be asking you what car you'd drive if you had unlimited options in a very special high school reunion edition of the Question of the Day. Then on Monday, come back here and we'll find out which one I ended up rolling down Woodward Avenue in and why. For the time being check out the shots below of the two choices and then hit the jump for the poll to help us answer the question at hand:

As a confirmed sportscar guy who isn't that fond of SUVs, I can't believe I'm saying this, but...

Take the Jeep. It's unique. Park it in front of the HS (or wherever your reunion is), right on the sidewalk. You have press credentials, no? Make sure the valet/parking attendant/whatever knows you're with the press when you park on the front steps, and if he gives you any crap, tell him it's for a photo shoot.
