: Do You Own a Girlie Car?

I'm not ashamed of owning a pink Cadillac. :shhh: :p ;)

"We knew something wasn't right with the 2003 movie 2 Fast 2 Furious. Specifically, we could not believe the angry, muscular ex-convict played by Tyrese Gibson would not only tolerate--but want to drive--a purple Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder.

"This was way too cute and girly of a car to be a male protagonist's ride of choice in a film about illegal street racing in cutting-edge Japanese vehicles. Now, based on data generated by Kelley Blue Book last week, we can quantify the Eclipse's femininity: the Eclipse Spyder convertible has the highest percentage of female registrants of any car on the market. The hardtop Eclipse coupe has the fourth highest."

"And while men are willing to buy feminine cars, women don't go for the testosterone-fueled sports and luxury cars with the same enthusiasm. With the most popular car for women, the Eclipse Spyder, 34.2% of its registrants this year have been men--indicating that the kind of affordable sportiness the car provides cuts across gender lines. Most people like a bargain, after all."

The only pink car I would ever drive... let alone want to drive... would be a 1959 Cadillac... your choice of model and options... I don't care... a '59 Caddy is the only pink car I could rock :coolgleam

Yeah, lets leave it that way and not to mention if another Pink Caddy appears, it came from Mary Kay

Doooooooohhh!!

An interesting article though. Did you see how many women bought an Acura NSX last year-------NONE!!!

"No women have registered a new Acura NSX in the United States this year, but few people buy the car to begin with. In the first four months of 2005, Acura sold 81 NSX models in the U.S."

click to see the slide show, interesting percentages per type of car....

That's because the NSX sucks. They only sell like one every other day and that says something.

Spyder, L300, Rav 4, Eclipse, and Freelander all suck.

"Men, on the other hand, appear to love luxurious, high-performance cars."
Very true, take my car for instance.

WTF happened to Pontiac? I bet it's the damn Vibe's fault.

This is evidence that women like crappy cars and should not be trusted with such purchasing decisions.

*ducks*

I'm shocked by Pontiac's ranking. Volkswagen would be the most feminine brand if gay men could count as women.

I agree, the mass majority of chicks dont know cars and everytime i see a vw passat a girl is driving, definitly a girls car.

Oh come on, look at all the Grand Am's driving around! They're filled with young attractive women! But I agree with the statement about VW. I think VW and Saturn should be tied for the "girliest" car brands. I mean, what man in his right mind would drive anything like either of those two brands? Terrible! Used to be cars had a much more defined gender-specific target. These days it seems like anyone can drive anything, and everyone has to be OK with that. BS! You go ahead and drive your L200. I have the right to point and laugh.

I wonder why it's ok for guys to drive Civics over an Ion (for example) yet the Ion has a good 30 or so more hp?! :hmm:

I won't buy a VW, but I'm paying over a dollar per Liter! So others must be considered. At least the Grand Am had a V6.

I owned a Passat, definitely the girliest of my group, but it was black with black leather. If it hadnt been so damn underpowered I probably would have kept it longer.

The name sounds girle, IONA

I think the more the Ion grows the more dudes will get them. Just because of the horses thow. But The Civic has always been a sporty compact that you can put alot of power to, easy to manuver, cheap on gas and cheap to fix. and they look sweet low. plus all the young kids like um.

I own an Acura, but I think the integra is alittle girlie. my Ack (http://pic.piczo.com/img/i38542939_6271.jpg)

It might be alittle girlie too but I had to make it alittle more me, so I lowered it two Inches put some 17's on it and two 12vs in the trunk.

If you get a red X, right click and then select "show picture"

It should eventually get through.

LOL, well I'm wondering if a Hummer painted in hot pink with leopard skin-type seat covers could be even considered a "girlie car?" It's still a mans car otherwise... :hmm: :p <-----pink!
