Yeah, I've had girls want a ride with me over other guys (like home from a party or club) because they liked my ride... and a few times that has lead to a little more in the car. If I had a piece of shit then I would have not had the chance to get to know her and in return not got laid or anything else those nights, that's about as conclusive evidence as I can give you. No matter what chicks say, having nice stuff (not just cars) will get you places.

I know girls are impressed with my car as with guys. but personally getting a car to impress people is stupid. I think its kinda B.S. way of doing things. I got the car because I liked the looks of it, how it performed, and the comfort of it. The more and more I have had my 1996 Mustang GT the more and more I learn it attracts the wrong people. I have a steady girlfriend who couldnt care less about what car I drive. And that makes me feel really good, because im ready to sell it and stop paying high insurance for a V8 powered sports car. Im ready to get something more modest during my days of College and flight training. So a nice car will always get looks and attention, what matters is that the girls like you for you and not your phat as phuk ride. simple concept eh?

NOT WITH MY CAR...

something about a beige Plymouth that doesn't do anything for the ladies... well it does nothing for me either.

Listen, I drive a BMW M5, and lemme tell you, girls LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the ride. But the thing that sucks, is that girls sometimes love the ride more than you.

Not if she's worth impressing. Whores go for the fancy in life, real women don't care about the car.

I must admit though, whrn I'm driving my old beat up truck I get treated much differently than when I'm driving the Lincoln. By men and women both. Strange, isn't it?

Most of the girls I know like nicer cars, but as far as guys are concerned, the car isn't the main part. One thing I have noticed though is that girls seemed to be impressed by the ability to drive a stick shift. It seems that whenever I give a girl a ride somewhere, she's always impressed that I can drive a stick shift. However, I know that she's more interested in me than the car.

Not really, even though I have a Nissan Skyline R34!!! The thing is, most people who aren't into cars just think that although it's sporty looking, it's 'only' a Nissan. I do get a lot of guys coming up to me and asking about the car though, from an interest point of view - i.e. they know more about cars.

To be honest, I'm glad most people just think 'Nissan' - there would be nothing worse than getting picked on by all the Boy Racers at the traffic lights egging for a race, like everyone in a BMW seems to do.
I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

I remember back in high school, every time (for some reason or another) I drove my mom's Mercedes to school, I always ended up with a car-full of cute girls on the way home. If only I had a Mercedes now and girls in college needed a ride...haha.

There's nothing that impresses the girls more than a shiny red brand new minivan like mine. They especially like the car seats in the back. I highly recommend it for everyone.

Chicks dig the sound system in my Camry, as well as the Blue color with the Blue/Silver tinted windows.

They also think the Pickup is a scream.

My girlfriend loves the pickup more then the camry because it gets us up to Canada and Vermont faster to go skiing then the Camry does.

Well, I can tell you from my female point of view that I can see a guy in a nice car and really like the car but it's not going to make me really like the guy. What's NOT impressive is when guys make a big deal out of their car and talk about it like they are so wonderful because they drive a BMW or whatever. Of course, a guy can talk about whatever he wants if he'll let me drive his Ferrari, but unfortunately I haven't found anyone who will yet.

Hahaha UAL747, my point exactly. I used to drive a Porsche 944 when I was in college. While it was a used one, it looked just like it came off of the showroom floor. I had guys ALL the time come up and ask if I wanted a boyfriend when they saw my car. I even had a couple of them stop in front of me and get out and walk up to me and say, "I just want you to know I don't just like you because you're in a Porsche, but you want to have a drink or somehting?" Hellooooo, what else did you know about me? Anyway, I still hope to by my 911 Carrera one day, but it is something you have to deal with when you have a great car. Do they like ME or my CAR??? Of course that is what us girls always feel like, whether guys really like us as a person or just because we are cute and they want to get lucky.

Now Superfly, I didn't say I didn't like BMWs, just that it's awful when a guy brags about what he drives or does for a living or how much money he makes, etc. I was just using a BMW as an example.

Seriously Sophie, notice how guys who own BMWs always make it a point to remind you all the time that they own a BMW?

It depends. Some of the girls I know are into cars in a big way. So if you had something like a Porsche GT2, they'd probably go for a ride with you. Smile

BMW drivers brag about their cars because they are proud of them--they are a great ride.

The Truth

Tue Feb 05, 2002 12:14 am

If I'm driving along and I see a pretty nice car, and a chic driving it, that will make her look a little better (even if she's really not).

If I'm driving along and see a chic driving a some 70's rustbucket smoking like a freight train, I'll probably be turned off because she's got a crappy car, but...

...this is NOT always the case. There have been a few times when these tables were turned. I've seen ugly women in nice cars and HOT women in mediocre cars. Your car says a lot about you to other people and sometimes it's a bad way to convey yourself to others, but that's the way it goes.

Most of the time, good looking girls/women drive nice cars. You all know this is mostly true.

Sad thing is, my minivan cost a lot more than a lot of BMW's. Makes me wonder what's so great about a BMW. I've driven BMW's, and I like my Chrysler a whole lot better. In fact, I would even stoop as low as to buy something GM made before I would buy one of those cramped, uncomfortable, making rattle noises everywhere Kraut cars.

A lincoln would be the last car I would buy to impress a women. Go SUV. Contrary to popular belief, they are not "played out". Just hook it up in a different way. It can be a few years old.

Yep, Flight152, I'll take the beemer any day. If a guy is into his car because he really genuinely likes his car, that is cool. My dad has tons of friends who are car enthusiasts, one even had two Ferraris. These guys are cool. It's the ones that want to impress you because the car COST so much that turn me off.

Guys,

Most girls love little sports cars / convertibles, so long as it's not a balding middle aged man driving it.

I've had mixed re-actions from the guys though. Some like it, others prefer such things as utes or muscle cars.

Whatever. Personally I like prestige cars.

A stud in a black XK8 convertible has my attention, if only for a second.

Actually as long as the car is clean and works fine, you should be OK.

Believe it or not, I get a lot of attention with my 15 year old Chrysler LeBaron convertible.  Smokin cool
I think the car is junk but it looks nice, it's cheap and I can get laid pretty easily with it.




I agree with Twotterwrench on this one. Chryslers is the practical way to get the ladies!  Laugh out loud
