RE: Car Suggestions

I have heard the handling is excellent and overall its a very good car (even in 4cyl form), but it is in its first year so there is a very good chance you will have reliability issues. The biggest downside is the options arrangements....

RE: As GAY As Your CAR -- How Do You Rank?

The only cars I think are screaming gay are

#1 Volkswagen Cabrio
#2 Volkswagen New Beetle

I am in shock that the Cabrio is not on the list. There is a number of straight guys that drive New Beetles though, and I heard they pick up women quite easily in them.
