TOTD: Which Car Do You Want to Take on a Memorial Day Road Trip?

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 5/26/2014 Christian Seabaugh

Memorial Day may officially be all about honoring our brave servicemen and women who have lost their lives defending our country, but for most Americans the focus of Memorial Day is enjoying the long weekend with a road trip. While the emphasis of a road trip is often the destination, getting there is usually half the fun.

According to a recent study commissioned by Outcast, the network of video-at-the-gas-pump locations that is seemingly becoming ubiquitous, the three vehicles Americans most want to take on a road trip are the Chevrolet Corvette, the Ford Mustang, and the Toyota Prius.

Yeah. We were as shocked about that last one as you probably are. Anyways, for today's Memorial Day-themed Thread of the Day, we'd like to know which vehicle you'd most like to take on a Memorial Day road trip. Many of our staffers are actually testing their picks for Memorial Day road trip cars this weekend, with vehicles like the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51 Convertible, Mazda6, Infiniti Q50 S, and Jaguar F-Type all signed out for trips.

Which car do you most want to take a Memorial Day road trip in? Sound off with your pick and why in the comments below.

Oh, and among the other surprises from the "summer roadtrip" research conducted for Outcast by Equation Research : The two people wanted in the passenger seat most: Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Fallon.

No offense to Aniston or Fallon, but no Kate Upton? No Ronaldo?

Then again, folks wanted a Prius, too. Go figure...

The survey asked what snacks people pick up at convenience stores along the open road. Thirty-five percent favored Lay's brand in the "potato chip/salty snack" category, followed by Doritos at 13 percent and Pringles at 7 percent.

In "candy and chocolate," the Hershey brand was the choice of 25 percent of the respondents, followed by M&Ms with 14 percent and Reese's with 11 percent. Jack Link's, with 33 percent, was the leader among the "jerkey and meat snacks" category, followed by the iconic Slim Jim at 15 percent and Oberto at 6 percent.

And why they asked folks who clearly aren't worried about health food about their water preferences we're not sure, but Dasani was the top choice of bottled water.
