so, here is the question, what cars would you consider "chick" cars?
my thoughts pointed towards~
girls at my school usally drive olds alero but a lot of girls love my camaro and my friends firebird
New beetle (even my gal wouldn't drive that..)
1 seires SLK Merc
definitly the new beetle
miata(even though i like them)
And although I don't think of it as a chick car the only people I see driving a BMW Z3 is women.
OHHH YEAH, the Z3.. how could i forget..
Also MG TF
VW Rabbit convertable
Mary Kay Pink Eldorado
Hyundai accent flamingo pink
ohh man, I forgot the cabriolet, the ultimate chick car!
now I have that dumbass movie stuck in my head with Alicia Silverstone :banghead: forgot the name but that was the first car I thought of besides the New Bug...
Toyota Corolla, especially the new ones
and a lot of other ones I can't think of right now...
time to go to sleep, it's 3:50am here. :sleep:
There's no such thing as Chick Cars anymore. Oh, back in '55 Dodge had the
La Femme version of the Coronet (white and pink, with white and gold
accents, and matching purse, makeup case, and umbrella), but nothing in
modern cars is a Chick Car as such.
There's only insecure guys who have to have their car provide all their testosterone for them.
And Zalight's list is absolutely retarded (even in a retarded subject, that's an accomplishment...)
Here are some that I think...I will rate how bad it is on the side...the
Camaro V6 (severe)
Mustang V6 (severe)
Beetle New...non turbo (severe)
Prelude New (moderate)
Subaru Outback (moderate)
Saab 900 (moderate/severe)
Miata...hit or miss b/c it's a great autoX car (mild/severe)
I always think of the New Beetle and Jetta as chick cars.
But also, the chicks usually drive:
New Honda Civics
Unfortunately: the Acura RSX
All Hyundai's except the Tiburon
Women make up almost half the buying public anymore. I know many that drive
Porsches and Corvettes. Most of the Miatas I know of are driven buy guys
(and 90% of THOSE are SCCA racers). The New Beetle was designed by a couple
GUYS (Freeman Thomas and J Mays) based on the custom VW Bugs running around
california (and primarily driven by guys). VW Built the car becaeu there
was a huge upswelling of interest from the VW community, not just women.
Apparently you kids have NO clue as to how the automoive world works.
BTW, most PTs are driven by people like myself, who grew up around street rods, and wanted a new warranteeable family car that fit that style. As a member of a couple large PT clubs, I should know.
Rsx And A Celica Looks Like Chick Cars To Me.
I think if you wanted something that looked more like a street rod you had your change w/the Prolwer...but of course...no family could fit in that
Hmm $40k vs $18k? At $18K, you can't buy a reliable street rod, or even
build a decent one. At $40k, you can. I love Prowlers, and they are perfect
for those guys that can't build their own (and cost far less than having a
shop build you a '33 Ford roadster) but the PT is the perfect blend of
style and practicality, in an excellently priced package.
I've built street rods, and used to have a business doing that.
A mix of street rod? I'd have to say I disagree. The style might be trying
to look like that of an old roadster, but it falls short. A good family car
sure, but for 18k I'd probably get something that is even roomier. Also I'm
pretty sure I don't see an engine in a PT Cruiser the likes of what street
rods would have had, or even similar. This is just my biased opinion
because I am not a fan of the PT Cruiser. No offense to you Chris, since if
you like it, then you like it, and if it works for your family, then it
works for your family too, I just personally don't think it is too 'street
Also about chick cars..... girls do tend to drive some cars less often than others, but that doesn't mean the ones they drive more have less men driving them. The reason you see so many women driving Aleros and Grand Ams, etc is because so many people drive those vehicles in general.
So you think the ONLY street rods are old roadsters? Ever see one of
Apparently the PT is a lot like street rod versions of the fat fender sedans. Except with a warranty, practicality, and at a lower price point.
These are the linds of cars that people say SUV owners should have gotten, and it's NOT a minivan, which is also a plus. I've carried myself, my wife, my stepson and two of his friends, along with all our camping gear (sleeping bags, tents, food, backpacks) etc for a Boy Scout trip. I've carried all the lumber for our deck, as well as everything but 4x8 seets of sheetrock for my bathroom construction project. It has PLENTY of space inside.
Sorry, but the average street rod isn't all that fast, due to having a very mild engine coupled with a mild automatic. Especially when talking about ones like teh type pictured above. Most are cruisers, not racers.
At least you admit your bias, closed mided and ninformed as it is.
Having been involved with street rods for 25+ years, having built them in my shop, and dealt with them on boath coasts, I find it very much like a street rod: in STOCK form it's not a street rod, but it has the same style and potential, as the custom ones I posted will attest. Remember, a stock '37 Ford isnt' a street rod. In the PT's case, it has the style of the late '30s era cars, with wider wheels (And the GT even has street rod style 5 spoke wheels), and the nose down attitude of a street rod. All the right points are there to build from.
Alls VWs seem like chick cars. Maybe except the Phaeton. The Lexus RX330,
the Lexus SC430 even tho my dad has one.
BMW 3 series
oh yeah, a Hummer :orglaugh:
In my experience here in So. Cal., I'd say 90% of all the gender I see driving Jettas...is female.
Jetta...my No. 1 Chick Car Choice Award.
I second that. VW are for chicks.
first of all I said it is my opinion, and if I am misinformed I don't really see what about, other than the fact that you have 25+ years of experience with them supposedly and I am not nearly 25 years old, so I am glad you have a lot of experience. That does not mean I cannot make a comment, and it not have to be picked apart piece by piece by a person who allowed me my opinion but could not leave it as such, had to make sure everyone knew it was wrong, seems somewhat single-minded to me. I was being open when I said I can see it as a family car, and I suppose in a way it has similarities to a street rod, and yet you must take that simple, kind, notion and shove it in the garbage.
Once again, the feeling that having the opinion is more important than
knowing what you're talking about comes into play. Instead of wanting to
learn more and expand your mind, you want to defend being closed minded.
Yes, what I do IS single minded: my goal is to increase real knowledge of the hobby, while removing misinformation, and replying to (and if necessary, rebutting) commentary made by people who have decided it's more important to open their mouths and comment on something instead of figure out that they don't have enough information. And responding to people that would rather argue about their right to an opinion than ever examine that opinion for factual basis.
I've grown weary of kids that think they know everything about cars and make comments like yours. I used to be a nice guy about it, but even when nicely put, and factually presented, the response is the same: "I don't care what the facts are, my opinion is otherwise, and I have the right to my opinion, and be as insulting as I want to be about everything that isn't my favorite." Well, yes you do. And I have then the right to pick that opinion apart. If you demand having the right to your opinion on things you don't know about, then I have the equal right to voice my opinion ABOUT your opinion. I wish it had never gotten to this point, but too many people think that forming an opinion on nothing but conjecture is enough, and that basing insults on that baseless opinion is justified.
EEERRR....wrong answer. Ever heard of the GTI? Or how about the R32? if you're thinking about the jetta by itself, well, then that's you.
I never said I knew everything, thusly I am not one of those kids. Also in my second post here I said I am sure you do have more knowledge than me. Also all I gave was an opinion. Finally I am always willing to learn new things, but don't think there is a need for ridicule each and every step of the way.
Don't forget about VW Beetles. You can always tell the guy who is trying to
prove his car is'nt a girl with an all black Beetle flashy wheels and a
nice spoiler. Looks good, but he can't fool me. We all know his car came
lime green from the factory. :mrgreen:
No not all VW's. Hell the Jettas are'nt necisarily chick cars. I know lots of guys who own them and activley tune them with very respectable numbers to back it up. The VW GTi and R32, not to mention the older classic Beetle racers that drop 6 second quartermiles. Like the Miata post says, who says a supposed "chick" car can't be one of the greatest competing cars to ever be made?
I disagree with you on that statement. My buddy has owned nothing but later 60's and early 70's VW Bugs, and the only people I see driving the Bug is males.
Nope...I don't agree. Just the Jettas. and a close second is the new
Beetle...as somone already mentioned a few posts up from this. LOL.
But in no way is this to stand as a blanket statement...it's just my POV.
IOW...don't quote me on this as gospel truth. :wink2:
Jettas and the new beetle bug are chick cars , in maine nine times out of ten i see a chick in both. Now the ultimate chick car anything thats mopar , ford , or chevy from 87 down. Nothing beats a hot chick in a car that beats you in the 1/4 :laughing:
I like your thinking and couldnt agree more. If you can find a chick that can do that, why you and already have alot in common. :hi:
Yep, the Jetta and New Beetle are the only two chick cars from VW. I mean, how many guys want a fake flower in the cupholder of their Beetle? The Beetle was cool a long time ago, but ever since 1998, it has been for gals.
I totally agree that both the VW New Beetle and Jetta are chick cars.
Almost as much as an Eclipse or and Elantra. Even the Tiburon. Well. When I
see one drive by me I have to look to see who is driving. Of course I live
in the five college area of New England so 80% of the time it's a cute girl
driving. Now judging by this I have no idea how the car performs or if they
have any idea how to tune. But it's a big nasty assumption for us to take
the liberty to describe these cars as chick cars. For me you'd probably
never catch me dead in one. Just for the fact I don't want strange guys
driving 69 camaro's and 73 mustangs to check me out only to find out I'm
not what they expected. Kinda like picking up a tranny in a bar.
P.S. Lay on heavy sarcasm throughout post.
I hope you're talking about the kind of "tranny" that has gears. Don't know what you New England boys are up to but where I live that type of thing rarley happens.
Some chick car.
what about the cavilier and the sunfire the eclipse?
i could have been fed a load of BS , but from what i heard(take it with a grain of salt) that Saturn(and maybe not the new stuff) actually directs its marketing toward young single mothers on low budget incomes, so i would say Saturns are chick cars, just cuz of affordability and payment plans, other than that, my opinion doesn't matter
I actually read an article in the wheels section of my local newspaper that
said the PT cruiser and New Beetle are actually made for, and marketted
So they count as chick cars.
There is if what you're doing is being insulting. Apparently you feel
there's a need to be insulting about people's cars (incluing mine) but you
are above being called out on being insulting. i.e it's ok if you do the
insulting and belittling to others, but if they do it back to you in
return, you turn into a whiny bitch about merely expressing an opinion.
The moment you chose to open your mouth and be insulting, you lost the right to say no one can ridicule you in return.
Wel, teh new Beetle was designed by J Mays and Freeman Thomas as a modern
interpretation of teh Cal Look Bugs runing around their design shop in
California, and was presented to teh world as show car to get opinion.
Millions of VW enthusiasts like myself wrote in and told them to build it,
and tens of thousands of custom versions have been built. They were not
"made" for women. And ALL mass produced cars are marketed towards both mena
nd women (wmen make up nearly 50% of the buying public, you'd be stupid NOT
to market toward womein regardless of car). So yes, you will see ads in
women's publications marketing all sorts of castrs, fromBeetles to BMWs,
and even Porsches.
Does that mean ALL cars are chick cars?
Please. Cars are cars. "Chick cars" are individual cars actually owned by women, not whole lines in which some are owned by women.
Wasn't the PT cruiser deseigned by a woman, I remember reading that somewhere (perhaps the same article). But hell I don't know that much about who desiegned what so I could be wrong.
Now this is a post worthy of a response.
Last Saturday I spotted an Amish buggy on it's way to the farm market...with a box of, well..............baby chicks.
are you sure they werent going to like, an Amish McDonalds? Might have had to bring there own chickens for the nuggets.
The PT was designed by Brian Nesbitt, under the guidance of Tom Gale (head
of Chrysler design at the time). Tom Gale was a street rodder, and gave
some direction to those under him about the design (just like the Prowler,
which was a stylized version of Tom's own '34 Ford street rod)
But you could have found the designer's name with 20 seconds of typing into Google...
the new convertible MR2 is a chick car, atleast i think it is.
I think that girls would really like Cobras, but they probably cant afford
Don't you just hate old men that think they know everything... yes you may
have "25+ years" of experience, so what... learn to listen to the new
lastly, from the looks of it, your the only one in this forum bitching about how their are no "chick cars"... you've said your point more than once, people don't seem to be agreeing with you, so just give it a break and go give your opinions on some other post... please
Learn to Lesson? :ticking:
Age appropriate! :banghead:
Chick cars are cars that are dominately liked by "chicks." :mrgreen:
That fake flower was the first thing that popped into my head. I couldn't believe it the first time I saw it and then I knew that the Beetle was a goner. Enjoy em gals.
wait...ChrisV is just trying to make us a little more openminded about
driving cars that are usually thought of as chick cars, Not put us in our
place as young idiots.
And ChrisV, we are not saying that ONLY chicks can drive or like these cars, we are just saying that certain cars are liked by women more than men, And that sometimes, its rare to see a man that actually does like these cars, but not unheard of.
Yeah, riiight. That's what people mean. :roll:
Sorry, NEVER saw anyone mean that when discussing them. Look at the guy talking about the flower vase and the Beetle being a "goner" because of it. he doesn't even ahve a clue as to why it's there, but he wants to insult the car because of it. And I'll bet he want's to have the right to insult the car, but won't let anyoine have the right to insult him in return.
Sorry, that people hate actually having to open their minds and not be narrowminded, insulting, and/or bigoted haters! Sorry that I'm trying to get people to actually think about something before opening their mouths rather than be immature litlle assclowns. Why is it so much more important to be allowed to make retarded comments about cars and their owners than actually open your minds and learn something? Why can YOU guys say anything retarded that comes into your heads about cars and their owners, but you can't deal with someone commenting on you in return???? You hate having someone with experience tell you you're wrong, Mirot? Then f*cking LEARN something and you won't be TOLD you're f*cking wrong!
:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
Not yet anyway... :smoke:
1: I was I ever corrected by you in this forum... (no)
2: Aren't you a little old and *wise* to be swearing at and hating people that don't necessarily agree with you? (yes)
All I'm saying is relax. Yes everyone is entitled to their opinions, and yes you can try to try to dispute them, and try to teach them, but swearing, and getting all heated up will definetly not help.
Well, that was kind of an insult, I took it, and I don't mind that you said
that. I was speaking from an ascetic sense. I do not like the look of the
new beetles. My friends mother has one, she loves it. I have driven in it
and was somewhat impressed by its ingenuity. But I believe that the
aesthetics of the car, per my example, has been turned towards a more
female audience. Didn't mean to insult.
I am curious to what you mean by "Doesn't understand why its there"?
I think the vase is a throwbak/allusion to the flower power generation of
the first beetle, not something made to attract women.
ChrisV, I agree with you, and I definitely don't want to piss off one of the last remaining intelligent members into quitting the board. But your just taking it a little too far by saying all cars are designed for men and women, We know that. What we are saying is that some cars are more attractive to women. Thats all.
But I agree with you that men should give these cars a chance, not just shun them because they are "only" for chicks.
Whats so bad about a "chick car" in the first place? Are we such sexist
pigs that cars marketed towards women automaticly have to be dainty and
feminen? Can't some women be just as hardcore car entuisiast as some men
and cars marketed towards them be just as powerful, handle just as well,
and accelerate just as fast as any other normal car?
I'd really hate to break it to you guys but the female gender makes up over 50% of all car sales. So car companys market their cars towards the majority of the people that buy them.... women. So in essense most cars are "chick cars" for the simple fact they are marketed to appeal to most women. That includes your sports cars as well. My mother bought a 98 Corvette and shes not really an automotive woman. She liked the sexy sleek styling, the leather interior, and performance of the car.
I'd hate to tell you but those same Mazda RX-7/8's, Toyota Supras/Celicas, Ford Mustangs/Thunderbird, Chevy Camaros/Corvettes, Mercedes's SL's/SLK's/E's/S's, BMW M3's/M5's, Pontiac GTO's/G6's, VW Jettas/GTi's, Audi RS6's/S4's, Acura RSX's/TSX's/NSX's/Integra's, Honda Civics Si's/Accord's, Nissan 350z's/Maximas'/240SX's/Altima's/Sentra's, Mitsubishi Eclipse's/Evo's, Subauru WRX's/Legacy's, Lamborghini's, Jaguar's, Aston Martin's, Maserati's, Lotus', Bently's, and Ferrari's are all bought by women and marketed towards them. All those cars you consider manly and that you think make you masculine are driven by women all over the world. ESPECIALLY SUV's.
ChrisV is merely trying to open some of you guys eyes. Look arround, alot of things are marketed towards women. In essence they're all girl cars; so why discriminate with meaningless bullshit labels? Labeling something a girl car is just as idiotic as saying all people of a certain race like Ford cars so all Ford cars are that particular races cars... Grow up, looks arround, and open those eyes.... cuz some of you boys have been hiding behind mothers teet a tad bit too long. Its time for a dose of reality....
Ahh I see what you mean. Well, I am young and dumb at times. So I appreciate the clarification.
Hopefully never. Fast cars should be left up to the guys!
WOW, nice to meet you man, welcome to the 21st century, where women don't
have to spend life in the kitchen.
Unless that means I don't get to drive fast cars, because the women have taken them all. THEN they shouldn't be allowed to drive them. :laughing: J/K
A few little details about that 'manly' Mustang:
Mustang buyers: 56% female (63% of all Mustang sales is the base car)
Mustang GT buyers: 39% female
Looks like the Mustang may be a 'chick' car... ;) :p
OMFG NOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MAN CAR!!!! ITS GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hahaha jk :laughing:
It's like what has been said earlier. Nowadays, half the buying demographic is female, so there are no real 'chick cars'.
Now the question I have is; do girls tend to care more about how the exterior/interior looks, or how the car performs?
well from experience (3 sisters and a mom)
I have to say they are really into fuel economy and looks.... but then again they also want power... and THEN you have to try to explain to them why you cant get much power with good fuel economy.
oh yea, the cars have to definetly sit in the "cute" standard. But if they feel they have to be kings of the road, then they buy themselves an "uncute" SUV
i'm a girl and i'm planning on buying a 95' camaro. Girls like fast cars with a sleek design, ie: corvette, camaro, etc. Or really big trucks!
I always look for a combination of both (why settle for only one?). :D
The first beetle was presented in 1938. This car was designed by Hitler. The flower power generation is not the first generation of the beetle, although it might be around the time that it was first introduce to America. I think the vase is just there to be different. No other cars have it. It's unique. :smoke:
Actually, the bud vase is a nod to the air cooled beetle colectors that
look for original '40s and '50 bud vases that were optional equipment in
the original Beetles. It's not just for girls, and it certainly isn't about
Here's one in a '53 Bug.
Here's a stock '50s one:
These things are collector's items, and the one in the new Beetle was specifically added as a nod to that. Trust me, I've been heavily involved in the custom and restored VW scene since the mid '70s.
DO YOU HAVE ANY GOOD REASON FOR THAT REMARK OR ARE YOU JUST IGNORANT?
Actualy Hitler had an ideea for a people's car, and Ferdinand Porsche already had designed a couple while engineering Mercedes race cars. Hitler's Mercedes dealer got him in touch with Dr. Porsche, and Hitler funded Porshe's design.
Oh, I got you..
But what was the point of the first bud vases?
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE 1930'S HITLER ORDERED FERDINAND PORSHE TO CREATE A NEW "CAR FOR THE PEOPLE." THE FIRST VOLKSWAGEN CAR WAS PRESENTED IN 1938 WITH ALL THE SPECIFIC FEATURES ORDERED BY HITLER, THE ENGINE WAS PLACED AT THE REAR OF THE CAR, AND THE VERY ROUND SHAPE.
Why shout? I've been involved with the air cooled VW scene for a couple
decades, and have owned over 30 of them. Hitler MET Porsche through his
Mercedes dealer. You did know that Porsche had been chief engineer for
Mercedes before that, right? And had been designing cars for many companies
before that, too? He ALREADY had the design for the Beetle, which met
Hitler's needs. So it was the one that got developed.
THe original design was done by Dr. Porsche (his business at the time, 1930, was Dr.-Ing. h.c. Ferdinand Porsche GmbH) for the motorcycle manufacturer, Zundapp. Zundapp produced teh prototype in 1932, but decided to stick with motorcycles. Hitler invited Porsche to submit to him a design for his People's car, it had to be cheap, economical, fast (all of 60 miles per hour) and to accommodate two adults and three children comfortably (there was no requirement from Hitler to have it rear engined). So, in January 1934 Porsche gave Hitler a proposal for his car, based on the one he did for Zundapp.
Please. I try to give out only factual, researched information from all my sources.
I really suggest you don't try to argue with ChrisV, as you will soon find just how retarded you actually are.
Decoration. They were popular in a lot of European vehicles at the time. Kind of like lapel vases for men's tuxedos.
IM NOT SHOUTING, I JUST HAVE MY CAPSLOCK ON. I GOT My INFO AT:http://germanculture.com.ua/library/weekly/aa060600a.htm
Here's an intereesting link about the history of VW: http://people.westminstercollege.edu/staff/bknorr/html/history.htm
That info is wrong, and it's a popluarized version. Follow my link for a more in depth one. I have a better on in a highly detailed history book (that was also teh subject of a series of history articles in HotVW's magazine about 10 years ago...)
Wow. Do the new beetles actually have a decorated vase? I don't remember paying attention to it as much as the flowers?
who cares, chicks and cars are all that matter anyways. :thumbs:
A truer statment has never been made.
My gf drives a 04 Chevy tracker... without a doubt girls car.
Mustangs with the exception of the 69 Shelby fast back
Jetta for sure
Porsche kind of
RX-7 No RX-8 yes (even tho I like them.
Care to explain more? why should fast cars be left to guys? what makes us guys more qualified to own a fast car than a girl?
statically men have better driving record then girls. Despite the fact that
girls have been proven to be able to multitask better then guys, for some
reason they are involved in more accidents per capa then males.
In my personal experience, men are better at dealing with the stress that comes with driving at high speeds then women. I let my gf drive my Fiero once, she got to 85 mpg and she got freaked out. The average females response time is less then the average men’s... now I’m not saying that some women aren’t good drivers that would be ignorant of me. But on average males tend to be better drivers.
there we go, a good back up to a claim. But, you're somewhat wrong.
First of all, girls in this state have lower insurance rates because they get in LESS accidents than males.
I actually don't think that the response time is less, but on a race track, it shouldn't matter. (provided you're driving solo)
BTW = take out chinese women drivers, and I'm sure women drivers are as good as a driver as you and I are. :wink2:
As funny as that is the race shouldnt have anything to do with it.
My gf pays 1200 every 6 months for full coverage on her tracker, she has had just as many speeding tickets as my-self (so this isnt a factor)
I pay just 599 for 6 months full coverage on my Fiero.
Mine is classified as a Sports car, and hers a light truck, she should be getting the lower rate, but she dosnt.
I forgot to mention we are both 20 years old, white, dont live with our parents, college students...
Bullshit. I know for a fact that my wife could outdrive any of you children
here. 15 years as an EMT driving ambulances, drag racer, and now
autocrosser. And I know dozens of female SCCA racers who could hand you
your ass on any track OR on the street (like my sister, who is a multi-time
SCCA regional champion in numerous types of cars, from Hondas to
Miatas are not chick cars. They are modern versions of the car that's in my sig: teh traditional sprots car. It's not a "chick car" either.
Why is it so important to be bigoted, closed minded fools?
Hey now, I didn’t say all women where bad drivers. I too know a few
girls who could hand me my ass at the track. As I stated above that there
are many exceptions to the rule. But are you telling me that girl on the
free way putting on her eyeliner, talking on her cell, and smoking is a
better driver? I don’t think so, I don’t even drink in my car.
When I’m driving that’s all I am doing driving.
I like the Miata, but the Miata has become associated with women (kind of how the minivan got associated with soccer moms, and I got more chicks with my van then I did with my sports car), and I know that the majority of Miata buyers are men, Hell I love the new Miata sport, that’s one hell of a snazzy car.
And I feel that I am not a bigot or closed minded... Keep in mind I do drive a Fireo ;)
Im sorry to have touched a nerve. There are exceptions to every rule.
No worse than the guy drivng down the road reading the Wall Street Journal,
drinking coffee, and talking on his cell phone. Stereotypes are
stereotypes, but still don't mean that you should believe them as
generalizations. Especially when you use them to say women shouldn't have
sports or performance cars.
Only in the minds of the ignorant.
Then you should be on the side of those defending the Miata, not adding to it if you know the facts are different than the ignorant steroetype. We should be promoting the facts, not participating in perpetuating ignorance.
Your right, the guy with the Wall Street and the chick with the eye liner,
neither should have their license, let alone a sports car.
If a guy wants to drive a Miata that’s cool with me, just means his style is different then most (your right I really am not one to judge).
But with the few exceptions of the female racers I know, most of the women I know are too scared to drive something with that much power (example Sara driving my Fiero). But if a girl is capable of handling the power more power to her for driving it. I don’t make the assumption when I see a girl driving down the street in a Camaro that she’s a bad driver and couldn’t handle it... But when she’s talking on her cell, and all the other things bad drivers do, then I put her in the same folder as any bad driver, she just has a different file name
That is shouting on the internet. It is obnoxious, turn it off.
Who told you that? Statistics show that men are more likely to speed and get into car accidents. I challenge you to show me an insurance company in the US that says otherwise.
Hers is almost 20 years newer. Car value plays a role in insurance quotes.
A fully loaded 1988 Pontiac Fiero GT with average mileage retails for roughly $3000
A base 2004 Chevrolet Tracker with average mileage retails for roughly $14000
There is where the majority of your full coverage insurance difference comes from.
PLEASE FIND BETTER THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT.
The new bug is a chick car, what guy would get caught driving a bug [except the gay's maybe] :orglaugh: :clap:
*sigh* once again, why is it important to be this closed minded, bigoted,
The new Bug was designed by guys (J Mays and Freeman Thomas) around the Cal Look bug scene around their design studio. Lots of guys like them, for the same reasons lots of guys like original Bugs. I was one of the guys writing in to VW to produce the car after seeing the Concept One show car.
Remember how I proved you wrong about VW Busses? Please, refrain from posting any more ignorant opinions until you learn something.
How hard is it to move your left pinkie over 1/2" from the letter A and
turn it off? it's very hard to read and makes you look like your'e
shouting. Yes, there's more important things to worry about, but there's
better things to do that defend having the caps lock on...
ITS NOT HARD AT ALL TO TURN OFF, BUT I LIKE IT AND IT WILL REMAIN ON. :wink2: ALSO, IT SHOULDN'T BE HARD TO READ UNLESS THE PERSON HAS TROUBLE WITH READING IN THE FIRST PLACE :lol: .
Then you are a rude, lazy, ignorant a$$hole. That's what insisting on doing
that means, you little twit. Read the PMs I sent AND search the internet
for etiquette tips.
Here's how other forums handle it:
If you choose to remain defiant in this, one can only conclude you are as rude as the manner implies. Why would you want to BE rude? Do you like having people respond to you in this manner?
YOU SHOULD BE ASKING YOURSELF THIS, AS YOU DO JUST AS MUCH UNNECESSARY INSULTING.
If you're told the truth, and you choose not to accept it, it comes off as
insulting, when the real fool here is the person who chooses not to accept
the truth. You are a perfect example of a person who speaks a fact, then
finds out they're wrong, then lies and bitches and whines to try and make
their wrong fact seem true.
Seriously, the caps lock is 5/8 of an inch away from the letter 'A', not 1/2, so just turn it off.
If you choose to be an ignorant little whiny bitch, then it's not
unnecessary insulting when I tell you that you are.
Why is it so important to be contrary? Why is it so important to be ignorant? You could have avoided being treated this way simply by acting like a mature, intelligent person, rather than a shithead. You were asked nicely to turn the caps lock off, as it's considered rude by, oh, EVERYONE on the internet. And you chose to bitch about doing that. You deserve every bit of criticism you are now recieving.
Get a clue. :banghead:
THE CAPSLOCK BUTTON HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH "TRUTH." ITS AN OPINION,
POPULARITY DOESN'T MAKE SOMETHING RIGHT.
AND MY CAPSLOCK HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME HAVING WRONG INFO, AND IM GLAD THAT I WAS PROVIDED WITH CORRECT LINKS TO "THE HISTORY OF THE BEETLE."
Why is it so important to you to be contrary? You KNOW for a fact it's
considered yelling. Why do you insist on having the right to be disruptive?
if you dont' like it here, leave. Apparenl;ty learning about cars isn't as
important as insisting that you don't have to press that one little f*cking
I'm no longer answering your questions, and I suggest others do the same.
I'VE GONE CAPSLOCK CRAZY AND YOU CAN'T STOP ME
I LOVE CAPSLOCK
CAPS LOCK RULES!!!!
I'M WRITING IN ALL CAPITALS
HOLLA IF YOU LIKE CAPS LOCK AS MUCH AS I DO
According to democracy, majority makes something correct. That and what
benefits the majority of the population. Otherwise, we have no version of
what is right or wrong, unless you're a religious person.
Having the caps on makes it sound like you're yelling, and nobody likes it, so turn it off. You're doing this to just be a rebel, which, when in a form like this, makes you a dumbass.
You're now added to my ignore list.
OHHH!! Them's fightin words! :laughing:
I would definately have to say the newer Chevy Cavaliers (sorry to any guys with one of these) Although the 1988 Cavalier 2 door wasnt that bad.
Can we actually make intelligent commentary rather than just list them?
Especially after the discussion that has already gone on?
Ignoring the previous commentary is just pissing me off now. We already discussed why the PT and the New Beetle aren't "chick cars"
The average "chick" where I grew up doesn't know a lick of maintenence,
(not all mind you) so ill have to plop
honda civics or hondas in general,
and some acuras too. Cheap and reliable.
This is just because of the high numbers of imports that are cheap to buy, and maintain, running costs are low too, that ive seen around.
Pt's seem to have old people in them when not modified,
And new beetles arent popular at all where im from.
chick cars ? i think of toyota corolla
well, that's you, but I know plenty of men who drive corollas. It's a good family economy car, which is what it's meant to be, and it exceeds it's goal to be one.
Do you think the new chevy cobalt is a chick car?
This thread has so many damn bumps...
