This is Answers of the Day - where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's "Question Of The Day". It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers.

10.) All Saab Owners Are Left-Handed

Truthfulness: Surprisingly, this is almost completely true. Have you met a Saab owner who is right-handed?


Suggested by: Gino Camaro

9.) Half Of All New FJ Cruisers Are Owned By Middle-Aged Women

Truthfulness: Giving this an 80% because I know a middle-aged woman who drives an FJ Cruiser. Her husband drives a Highlander hybrid. I can't explain it, but there it is.


Suggested by: Fat Tire

8.) CTS-V Wagons Are Owned By Lottery-Winning Auto Journalists

Truthfulness: Not so much truthful as truthy, because it's a car designed mostly to appeal to the autojournalists who were begging for one. Will they actually sell any? Not to us. We don't have the cash. But if I win the lottery I'm buying one, no doubt.

7.) VW GTI Owners Are Young, Euro Trash-Wannabe, Trash-Talkers

Truthfulness: Have you been to Vortex?

Suggested by: Kangaru


6.) All 240 Owners Are Recreational Marijuana Users

Truthfulness: Not true. Some of us just love RWD wagons. I think the stereotype you're looking for is "entirely awesome individuals." That's true.

5.) All Porsche Owners Are Cheating Bastards

Truthfulness: Who told?

4.) Morris Marina Owners Are People Completely Lacking A Sense Of Humor
