The Anti-Camry Factor

September 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment


About 18 months automotive writer Kevin Miller started an Anti-Camry Blog.  Yes, it is an actual blog about his frustrations of sharing the road with Camrys.  I have a found a kindred spirit. 

Here is an excerpt from his inaugural post.

“I’ve been infuriated by drivers of dumpy, dented tan Toyotas one too many times. This blog is going to be the outlet for my frustrations.

Yes, I exist in a higher level of automotive being. Your Totyotas are transportation appliances to you, just another refrigerator or washing machine, enabling you to go about your drearly daily tasks with as little joy as possible. You don’t care if they are dirty, dented, smoking, or even if you do a poor job driving them. But I care that you’re getting in my way, and clogging up the roads I need to drive on.”

It is scary how much I agree with him and I’ve even posted on this site a few times my disdain for the “transportation appliances”.  Start paying attention to what the bad drivers are driving out there.  Next time you see someone do something stupid on the road look at the make and model of that car.  More often than not, it is a Camry or one of its derivatives. 

Anyway, if this is a frustration you share, spend a little time at the Anti-Camry Blog.  It is entertaining.  Unfortunately for the members of the Anti-Camry faction this site’s last update was a few months ago.  It appears that Kevin is now a regular contributor at

It’s nice to know that I’m not along in the blogosphere with my Camry hating.  Maybe, I won’t need therapy after all and I can use that money to make my GTO faster!
