I honestly don't notice what cars people drive. I can tell you the colour, that's all. Unless it's a red MG - then I think "lucky them"

I think "wow, if they can afford it, good on them!" If they earn a nice chunk of money and work hard, then good on them. Why not. I don't judge too quick.
The only thing that irritates me is people who show off in their cars. People who get too excited when putting their foot on the accelerator and look out their window to see if people are looking at them. Makes me cringe! They're the ones I judge.

I dont judge as i dont want to be judged. I grew up with a car fanatic of a father who loved his muscle cars and owned a classic mustang. He has just imported a new one which cost him a pretty penny. I know how hard he worked to get what he has.
My DH and I were judged recently when we bought our "new" car. We ended up buying a 2003 v series skyline. We loved the car and it has all the safety features we wanted for when we have a little bundle. Someone made a comment to me "you musn't have children to be able to afford that kind of car". They thought it was something it isnt and besided i worked hard to buy it to upgrade from our old, unsafe, rundown commodore.

We just recently purchased our Toyota Prado, I'm not going to lie, it wasn't cheap but we worked for it, so it really annoys me when people comment things like "well aren't you rolling in it" or "wish I had the money you do" ha he ha. Yeh no just no.

I don't really think anything too much of who drives what car.. as long as they aren't driving dangerously, that's fine. Today at the shopping centre I was waiting to cross the carpark and there was a lady driving a bmw really really slowly whilst looking sideways and not really straight... and there was a man waiting next to me and he yells out "'come on, desperate housewife!!"".. I have to admit, it did make me laugh, because when she drove past us, she looked very like Teri Hatcher. lol.

My 21yr old cousin has a 130k lexus. My DP's uncle has a very very expensive lexus 4wd. As I said to both, it's still just a Toyota, lol.
I pay attention to cars, but not because I am jealous or wish I had what they have etc. I just like cars, I like mechanics and working on cars etc. They fascinate me. But that being said I am not real into the flash cars I just appreciate them for what they are and don't care about the person driving it/owning it. For example I see my cousins Lexus and think it's a beautiful piece of machinary. But I don't think anything else beyond that.
I am happy with my car, it's not very old, it's a big beefy v8, full leather interior with suede inserts, all the trimmings electronics wise blah blah blah. But it didn't cost an arm and a leg and at the end of the day it's just a car and suited to my budget at the time of purchase (and I'm a good bargainer). The same as my absolutely gorgeous friend who owns an older small hatch back. It's nothing flash but it gets them from a to b and c and d and anywhere they need to go. I don't think any less or anything about her because of her car and she doesn't think any more of me because of my car.
It's just a car.

I just think, "wow good on ya!", unless they're the type to brag about their $$. Having lotza $$ is fabulous but using it to feel superior and make others feel small is just pathetic...

I just think 'oh. A fancy car' then carry on living my life lol... Cars don't really interest or impress me at all, as long as they work and get you places that's great for me. But hey if someone wants to spend a heap of money on a car good for them, whatever floats your boat I say.

I think nothing if its a stranger.could be big debt. Could be a gift. Could be that they worked hard for it. Good for them I guess.
If its one of my friends driving an expensive car.. I assume they must have robbed a bank.
