In my experience, it's the people driving Challengers, Chargers, and Altimas that unanimously appear driving like micro penis'ed shitheads. It's very rare that I see people in high-status cars driving like that.

I find that minivans and SUVs will surprise you with their aggression and general assholerie.

lol. Lifted pickup trucks ("brodozers") seem to be at the top of the a-hole hierarchy wherever you go. High-end luxury cars/SUVs tend to correlate more with distracted driving in my experience.
