You are a little late leaving for your tee time and your drive includes a long stretch of road where there is no passing. What make and model car would you hate to get stuck behind? ie. What make and model/type of car(s) do you think has the highest probability of making you even later.

I would say.

1) Subaru - Any wagon
2) Toyota Prius
3) Lincoln Town Car

It seems whenever I get stuck behind a Nervous Nelly it's almost always a Toyota Corolla or a Grandpa Jones in a Saturn!

There is an 8-mile stretch of twisty turny road on my way to work.  Speed limit is 45mph.  It's a fun road to drive but I get stuck behind a slow-poke about a third of the time.  Often it's Subarus or Prius but what bothers me the most is when I get stuck about a slow-poke in a fancy BMW.  Why would they buy such a car if they're not going to drive it appropriately.

Pick-up Truck drivers.

Hate being anywhere around them. They are one of two types: 1) overly aggressive and pushy trying to intimidate others or 2) Grandpa out for a drive with nowhere particular to go and taking his sweet time getting there.

That reminds me.... is it just me or does a Handicap plate increase the probability that the driver will be going 35 mph or worse in 45 zones?

Even some Subaru wagons have turbo engines,  like the forester XT.  Guys can drive those fast.  I see plenty of guys speeding around in economy cars.  

But agreed on hybrids and big honking cars like a town car.  No one is driving a mercury grand marquis over 50mph under any circumstances

Even more infuriating than a Prius ect is getting stuck behind a supercar like a Ferrari 488, 458, Porsche Turbo, Aston Vantage, Lamborghini etc that drive below the speed limit. If you are going to spend six figures on a supercar WHY THE F are you driving below the speed limit.

Last night for me was a $250k Bentley driving 35 in a 45 where everyone else drives 50+

Any Buick, yes even the GN (as they don't drive them fast anymore and want to preserve them).

Any hybrid, especially Prius.

Grand Marquis/Crown Vic/Lincoln Towncar

Beat up pickups (not the lifted ones), driven by townies. -10 mph if still has bench seat and gun rack.

Around here, Subarus don't have the same stigma.

I have 2 stretches of road I drive every day to and from work totaling about 10 miles. Speed limit is 60 on both. I don't remember the last time I was able to drive over 50, and it's usually 45. Pisses me off to no end! The roads are pretty busy and there are a few big blind curves in both, so passing usually isn't an option. You can bet your hind side I'll drop down 2 gears, dump the clutch and scream past them at the first opportunity though (I drive a 2015 mustang GT with a couple of minor goodies).

Which is why I specified a Car. Any commercial truck such as a Dump Truck, Trash Truck, Sanitation Truck or 18 wheeler with a full load it is more about what is in the vehicle rather than the person driving. I agree it stinks to be behind those vehicles but it is probably not their driving that is the issue.

The other one that I see a lot which I don't think gets enough attention are the G series Infiniti's (G35, G37)... They are quick cars with a fair amount of power yet 9 out of 10 times their drivers drive them super slow... And then there is that 1 out 10 and the person is driving it like a bat out of hell

It's all a matter of numbers, Jeff.  With the Corollla being one of, if not the most, popular passenger cars in the world it would only be reasonable to expect that the nameplate gets a very high percentage of bad drivers behind the wheel.  That's the price of popularity!
