    Well, my friends and I were walking down the street and we got on the topic of cars, of course.

    We talked about how it would be an honor to even touch a Porsche or a Ferrari...Of course.

    But what would be the nature of that "touching," I wondered?

    And so I asked that fateful question.

    If you could get hit by any car in the world...

    ...What would it be?

    i was hit by a car 8 years ago. i don't know what it was though. probably a cavalier. and i can say from experience that i'd rather not be hit by a car again, regardless of company and model.

    sorry if i'm ruining this thread but i just thought i'd tell everyone that it was not a pleasant experience. my durable lunchbox saved me from a broken hip.

    I'd like to keep it down to any battery powered Tyco RC car...

    Or, if it's on campus, any car, as long as it's not going very fast, so I can sue them, and get lots of money $$$ (I live in Texas, I can get cash from tripping on the sidewalk...)

    it'd be really cool to see my IQ normalized with that of the average texan. i bet it would shoot up to like 190 or 200 like that... ;)

    interestingly, i have a friend in Oregon who bought one of those to go off-roading in the Yukon or something. they can drive over a 2-foot tall perfectly vertical curb or something insane like that. amazing.

    Prefer not to be hit by a car. If it is going to happen would prefer not to know that it's coming, just get it over quickly. An H2 might just do the trick!

    A really expensive car.

    That means they will have lots of money to pay my outrageous mental anguish and lost wages claims :D

    well after a bike accident from my youth I was almost run over by a car, that's close enough for me so I wouldn't take it as an honor to be hit by any motorvehicle.

    check out this mod... it is the ultimate 'party mobile' at Burningman , with an obscene sound system and two projection screens on either side. The DJ stands under the perpex bubble in the back...

    at least it makes plenty of noise when it is approaching, it won't creep up on you from behind and run you over.
