10 cars women love (Not to buy list for men :0)
TrueCar ^ | April 24, 2012 | Brandy Schaffels

Posted on 04/25/2012 7:46:34 AM PDT by C19fan

Regardless of which direction the war of the sexes is leaning, one thing is certain: A gender gap still exists between women and men when it comes to buying a new car.

According to the third annual gender and car buying study by TrueCar.com, the brand with the highest percentage of retail sales to women in 2011 continues to be Mini (46.2 percent), followed by Nissan (45.7 percent), and Kia (45.6 percent) compared to 2010 when Mini (47.9 percent) came in first, followed by Kia and Honda respectively (46.8 percent and 46.0 percent). On the flip side, 13 of the top 20 brands in 2011 with the highest percentage of male buyers were either exotic or luxury brands.

Watch the movie Italian Job. They rev up the mini and give it a starring role.

I would agree with you about the Mini built by BMW but the true Mini Cooper has a long racing history and was quite a beast until Leyland was nationalized and the Commies started making junk.

They were the newer ones if that is the 2003.

It’s a good movie if you haven’t seen it. No oscar roles, but a fun movie to watch.

Here's one chick who loves her big ole '07 Lincoln Town car. Roomiest trunk on the road, leg room, arm room and head room for an army of passengers. Drives like a sailboat gliding smoothly and silently across the water.

I bought it from the Lincoln used car lot 10 months ago. Mint condition, great lines, only 22,000 miles, not a scratch or stain inside or out, beautiful leather interior, engine spanking clean, even smelled new.

Believe it or not, I paid only 14K plus tax for it.

This was because they're not making the wonderful, roomy, dependable Town cars any more. I own the end of an era.

Fiat 500, hands down. I want one so badly. But then, we had one when I was growing up in Italy, so I have fond memories.

Used to race against them with an Alfa. I couldn’t lay a hand on them, they were unbelievably fast. Real beasts.

My former Battalion Chief bought a mini-cooper. When I saw him in it I instantly assumed that he had borrowed his sister's car. I didn't even give it a second thought.

My car is a Porsche series 993 Cabriolet. Last of the air-cooled Porsche engines and the absolute finest iteration of the classic 911 profile.

Drop the top, fire up a stogie, blast some tasty tunes and cruise on down the pike. Can ya’ dig it?

I own both “Italian Job” movies. The remake is good, but it completely misses the spirit of the first one, which is why I enjoyed it so much.

My boss a few years ago was a real man’s man. Lived in Carlsbad California and had ridden his harley on so many california roads so many times he was bored with them.

So, what did he drive? It was a good idea at the time, maybe, but he drove a PT Cruiser. :-D

You ever drive a Mini? A friend had one a while back. The “S”upercharged model. It felt like I was driving a souped up go-kart. Handled like one too, like the thing was on rails.

A blast to drive.

Over on Gaytorium.com, Tina Phey nominated the Top 5 Lesbian Cars:

What are some care models that are considered stereotypical lesbian cars? My top 5 choices would be:

1. Subaru Outback – Butch, rough and rugged vehicle that is still small and nimble.
2. Subaru Forester – See above, but with more legroom and cargo space for camping gear, etc.
3. Toyota Prius – Outdoorsy while being environmentally friendly.
4. Ford F-150 – Lesbians love to haul stuff…
5. VW Beetle – Cute and cuddly car for the lipstick crowd.
