Oh Man, now THIS is what we need!
2001-10-02 03:14:42 PM  
Hey...where's the Gremlin?
2001-10-02 03:15:33 PM  
What about my Civic Hatchback? It was good enough for Gran Turismo!
2001-10-02 03:17:05 PM  
What no 911
2001-10-02 03:18:35 PM  
An older VW Jetta is not a girly car either. That was on Fast and Furious to race, not impress.
2001-10-02 03:21:36 PM  
i like the new buttons! (off topic, look up....moron.)
2001-10-02 03:24:39 PM  
Porsche: for men who want hand jobs from beautiful women they hardly know.

Volvo: they're boxy, but good.
2001-10-02 03:24:50 PM  
Hrmm...My Jeep wasn't listed, guess I'm asexual now...

2001-10-02 03:25:43 PM  
Oh shiat, members of my family either own or have owned half of those cars.
What must the neighbors think ;)
2001-10-02 03:27:24 PM  
One big-time chick car is the Toyota Celica (I own one myself, so be kind). When I see a guy driving one of those, a blip immediately appears on the gay-dar.
2001-10-02 03:30:42 PM  
Amusing that most of the "chick" cars are also the top "gay boy" cars....
2001-10-02 03:31:49 PM  
I just gotta say, the only car I know of that is a true girl car, is a Ford Probe(weird that the girls adopted the "Probe", eh?). I'd say a good 98% of the people that drive those are women. So, I'd say those are a much larger blip on the gay-dar when a guy drives one.
2001-10-02 03:34:10 PM  
One left out of the list was the ECHO. Oh yeah that's right! Nobody will admit to owning one.
2001-10-02 03:34:53 PM  
So basically Volkswagen = Gay Guy or Straight Girl.
2001-10-02 03:37:25 PM  
Mustang? Camaro? mullet-mobiles! Why are all the SUVs lesbian vehicles? Farked up!
2001-10-02 03:39:55 PM  
AM General Hummer should be in the man list. In fact, it should probably be #1.
And where's the Canyonero f-series for the ladies? C'mon!
Twelve yards long and two lanes wide,
Sixty-five tons of American pride!
2001-10-02 03:49:27 PM  
Volkswagen cabrio = top chick car(in my opinion). C'mon who HASN'T seen a chick drive em?
2001-10-02 03:52:36 PM  
This list is supposedly "of all time" but I see no mention of muscle cars from the 50's or 60's. Come on, one of them has got to be on the list somewhere.
2001-10-02 03:53:25 PM  
That's bullshiat. Was this a trailer-park poll?
2001-10-02 03:55:31 PM  
Yeah, like the Shelby GT500 wouldn't be up there.
2001-10-02 04:14:20 PM  
I'm surprised by the Mullet factor of the top guys' cars. I'd assume that the site authors are "business in the front, party in the back" types anyhow, judging by their fervor at that they think are

I'm a moron.
2001-10-02 04:24:56 PM  
Car-Talk can suck my rod. Here's hoping those two moron's have a head on.

I want car reviews, I go to AutoWeek or Car & Driver. That's where the serious car nut's go.

Oh, and screw those idiot's and their assumption VW makes nothing but Chick cars. VW rocks, always has, always will.
Da da da da.
2001-10-02 04:38:41 PM  
Why in the hell ain't there real muscle cars in the male section???
2001-10-02 04:44:54 PM  
I don't know who they interviewed, but the guy cars (other than the Corvette) are jokes. What about some of the great 60's and 70's muscle cars? The GTO, Roadrunner and Cuda are on the the top of my list as real guy cars. I would die for a 1970 Roadrunner Super Bird.

Now that is sweet.
2001-10-02 04:54:33 PM  
The Dirt mobile!
2001-10-02 05:19:50 PM  
1970? Ironically the same year the mullet haircut came into pop culture
2001-10-02 05:27:19 PM  
Volkswagen Thing and Sirocco
Guy cars

White and gold Trans-Am with T-top
Chick car

Ultimate guy car
Ninteen sixty four and a half Mustang

Ultimate chick car
2001-10-02 05:31:15 PM  
This is so awful! I'm a chick and straight, and I much prefer the cars on the guy's list. Viper, Mustang, Camaro, Corvette...and why weren't there any japanese cars on either list? The S2000 or the Supra? the NSX?
2001-10-02 05:58:36 PM  
amen Sango, the Supra and the S2000 are pretty damn sweet. Not as much power as the mullet-mobiles, but they won't break down every 100 miles.
2001-10-02 06:01:20 PM  
woe is me....

I own two of the cars on the chick list. #5 and #3.

Of course, the neon-POS-lemon I could only sell my exwife without feeling guilty.

The Miata I have to disagree with....

Very comparable to the old classic roadsters but is instead cheap and dependable. The handling is beautiful. With a hardtop, the thing looks very cool... much better than some riced out Toy-yoda.
2001-10-02 06:02:22 PM  
So, the gay guy cars are chick cars, and the gay girl cars are guy cars... makes sense.
2001-10-02 06:14:36 PM  
VW Thing - yup, guy car.
take off the doors, windows and fold down the windshield.
2001-10-02 06:19:02 PM  
Where are the fat bastard cars.
2001-10-02 06:40:35 PM  
Guy car?

Any vehicle made by International Harvester.
2001-10-02 06:51:39 PM  
Japan was seriously underrepresented on the guy list. I would much rather have an NSX or an Integra than a mustang.
2001-10-02 08:00:27 PM  
Word up Col.Panic. Word up. I so totally hate Mustangs...and most of the guys who drive them.
2001-10-02 08:43:24 PM  
Why wasn't this on the list?
[image from too old to be available]
2001-10-02 08:47:18 PM  
Dude! WTF? The Mustang is the #1 guy car? Mustangs are totally chick fashion cars. From the old to new Mustangs, I only know chicks that drive them, like them, or even like them. The guys are usually driving a Nova, Camaro, Charger, Cougar or a good ol' truck. BTW, does that list mean the lesbians are manlier than us. Not one truck on the guy list.
2001-10-02 08:48:46 PM  
Err, I meant "I only know chicks that drive them, like them, or even want them." I accidently put like twice.
2001-10-02 11:07:29 PM  
Not a big fan of the new Mustangs. But the old ones? That's another story. How 'bout a '68 Shelby GT500KR - 620 HP.

[image from too old to be available]

Now THAT'S the shiat....
2001-10-02 11:14:59 PM  
HedCheez: hahaha, I was just gonna mention the Superbird! I actually saw one driving on the highway once too. Aye, 'tis one nice vehicle.
2001-10-02 11:52:16 PM  
This is a REAL bad debate. It really comes down to where you live. I moved from inner city area to yuppie suburban area and see a huge difference in what is considered manly.

For example:

Mustangs in Philadelphia where GT/Cobra models were customized and used in illegal street racing.

Mustangs in yuppie land are V-6 girly cars.
2001-10-02 11:58:03 PM  
Hey BlackWell, I actually know a girl who drives a black one of those. And gosh darnit...she actually knows her old muscle cars. And no, she's not a butch girl, just unusally cool.
2001-10-03 01:19:03 AM  
Ultimate guy car (IMHO): 1970 International Harvester Scout 800.

Mine has an IHC 304 V-8, half-ton axles, and bumpers made of oil-drilling pipe. I can't post pics, and it's not painted yet, so I don't have anything to show on it, but it looks something like this without the stickers
2001-10-03 01:35:30 AM  
Ahhh! The bitter truth is revealed. Thanks to Car Talk I now know I am a lesbian. What will I tell my parents?
2001-10-03 03:17:18 AM  
Enough of the Mullet crap. A good car, is a good car.
2001-10-03 04:12:19 AM  
WTF was this girl smoking when she wrote this:

"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."

Porsche is independent, you dung beetle!
2001-10-03 09:13:33 AM  
Uh, no they're not Bugger_all.
Porsche and Audi are owned by Volkswagen.
2001-10-03 01:18:05 PM  
You'd better MARRY that girl!!!
