What's a horribly common/invisible car by you?

Since my wreck, I've been driving my wife's 04 Chevy Malibu. Since we live in Pittsburgh, where it seems that ownership of an Impala/Malibu/Camry/Accord seems to be legally mandated at one per household. It seems like I am driving an invisible car. in the focus, people would sometimes give me the thumbs up, kids would smile and wave at me, or I'd be asked what kind of car it was. In the Malibu - I'm invisible, as if I am not there. In some ways, it's kind of neat to be driving a common, invisible car. I'm just saddened that this one isn't as fun to drive as the last invisible car I had - the 99 Contour Sport I had prior to the focus (this was before they started vanishing from the roads).

So, what cars are so unbelievably common in your neck of the woods that they are invisible?

civics, f-150 & 250, camery, corolla...that's all I can think of right now. it's kind of funny you mentioned this though. just earlier today, i was thinking to myself, why does everyone have the same cars? even mostly the same colors?

i kind of find it funny that there aren't very many ford foci around where i live...i think that it's pretty tight though at the same time

It's actually the reason I bought the focus hatch - it's versatile and looks unlike anything else out there. I see more Fit's than foci hatches here in pittsburgh.

Actually speaking of Infiniti it seems as though every above 35y/o male around here has a G35 (her dad included)
