It used to be only boring people drove Subarus. Then Subaru started winning rallies and every knuckle-dragging yahoo from Wales to Walla Walla, Washington is going sideways in a blue Scooby. Oh, and watch this video to see how the US contingent reacted when their man Ken Block switched from Subaru to Ford.
It's hard to say if the people who dedicate their time and money to moldy old convertibles that never start are crazy, or if they're just addicted. MGs and Triumphs are basically the smack of the car world.

You know that someone daily-drives that slammed VW above. It is the Volkswagen way.
Known as the Tifosi, Ferrari fans are unlike anybody else. Look at them try to get run over by Michael Schumacher to get an idea. Oh, and 99.99% of Ferrari fans will never even come close to owning one of the actual cars.
1.) Holden, mate
As of 2010, in Australia no less than 46% of all cars impounded for hooning were Holdens. Australian car fans are the last great "I will punch you in your fucking face if you say anything about my car company" fans. Holden fans are the wildest of all.
