If you’ve seen the movie Winter’s Bone then you know that being a Redneck doesn’t necessarily mean one is lacking in funds, it’s really more a personal statement than an economic one. One of the main protagonists in that most excellent flick drove a (SPOILER ALERT) 1992 Cadillac Eldorado, resplendent with its faux convertible top. That’s not your typical Redneck ride, the dentally impaired class usually preferring generously patina’d pickup trucks and bare feet.
But still, that Caddy got me to thinking, what if you were one of the Beverly Hillbillies, and had more money than sense, what kind of car would you want to stink the place up with its classiness? Rednecks, as you surely know, are a cultural phenomenon not unique to the U.S., however the name generally is. Other forms of address may include Hayseed, Johnny Reb’, NASCAR Fan, or Congressman. It’s best just to refer to them as sir or ma’am as they do tend to fill the NRA member base.
But what about those redneck cars? If NASCAR is the the sport of choice for rural rustics then perhaps the old maxim of race on Sunday, sell on Monday holds sway and one of the models that turns left on the track also turns our country brother’s hearts a flutter? What do you think, what car is the epitome of redneck class?
