Hey, gang! Since we had such a hoot with "Worst Cars of the Millenniun" how about having a go at this? And remember: Keep your punches clean and no hitting below the belt. At the sound of the bell come out fighting. **DING** )
Presenting....The Ultimate Chick Cars of all Time
#5 Dodge Neon
Neons are Barbie cars: little and cute and rounded in the hips. Even in black, they are feminine and adorable, only just a bit tougher, like Tattoo Barbie."
#4 VW Jetta
" Anything by Volkswagen is a chick car. VW realized this years ago and joined forces with another company to sell guy cars-- they called that company Porsche."
#3 Mazada Miata
"I discovered this phenomenon when I got a Miata. 'Girlie car'. That all I heard."
#2 VW Cabriolet
"All teen-age girls classify them as cute. 'Nuff said."
#1 VW Beetle
" The VW Beetle. A chick car, definitely. And made to be so. How? I know of no other automoblie with a FLOWER VASE as standard equipment."
Presenting....The Ultimate Guy Cars of All Time
#5 Dodge Viper
"It might be a guy car if there was a movie or TV show built entirely around it. Other examples include Burt Reynold's Trans Am from Smokey and the Bandit, Nash Bridges' Hemi Cuba convertible and Jim Rockford's Firebird."
#4 Ford F-150 Pickup
"Any car with numbers or letters for a name, or tacked on the end, can become a guy car. For example, F-150 or Civic-SI."
#3 Chevy Camero
"...with twice the horse power needed. Used to show other guys how manly you really are."
#2 Chevy Corvette
"I believe the main aspect that determines the male/female state of a car is based on the engine compartment(hood)-to-cab-lenght ratio. A car such as a pickup or Corvette has a large hood-to-cab-lenght ratio."
#1 Ford Mustang
"A back seat guaranteed to be too small for your mother-in-law."
Guy Cars = All other vehicles not fitting into the previous category.
Nothing more on your subject, but you did mention car chases and Mustangs.
Steve McQueen is probably the only movie star to have driven race cars with the big boys in some of the major race circuits. He still does reasonably well.
Real men drive pickup trucks.
They classify an F-150 with a Civic-SI? What a laugh. You don't have to be gay to drive a Civic, but it helps.
Four cylinders is definitely chick territory, although I am sure there are some exceptions.
And VWs are just chick, they are gay.
