I was on vacation last week. My wife and I landed somewhere and as soon as I saw the parade of similar vehicles, it was an automotive reminder of where we traveled. On the roads, the majority of vehicles seemed to be Jeep Wranglers, as well as the convertible version of the Mustang and the Camaro. We were in Hawaii and the rental car procession made that just as clear as our crumpled boarding passes from a long flight and the gorgeous surroundings.
At our hotel, which looked not toward the ocean but towards the West Maui mountains, I could look down into the parking area for our hotel. I chuckled as I noted at least 8 Wranglers parked next to each other. An occasional Mustang or Camaro broke up the bevy of box-shaped roofs.
The non-rental vehicles on the island are typically of the Toyota variety. I’ve noticed a fair bit of Tesla products, a smattering of Hyundais, and one supremely excellent Mini.
What are some other vehicles that are indicative of a place? Or what are some places that remind you of a given vehicle?
