IOW...don't quote me on this as gospel truth.

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.

Thumbs down

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.

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 towards women.


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.

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...
