RAV4

But nothing, and I do mean nothing, is more of a chick car than a Volkswagen rabbit/golf/EOS convertible.

Mini Coopers are pretty effeminate too.

I'll admit my e93 is a chick car too. I at least tried to tone it down with masculine colors and a motor with some balls. I added the wheels too for another shot of testosterone. It's a lot of fun though so I allow it to happen. It helps that I'm married and secure in my heterosexuality as well.

It doesn't have to have pink stuff or flowers. Many chicks drive Mercedes C-class in Southern California. I'd define C-class as "chick's cars". My wife drives her C-class. My female coworker drives it, too.

A chick car, by definition, is a car driven by a chick.

If you are not a chick, but you constantly worry whether you are driving a chick car, then may be you should consider getting a sex change.

Excessive styling, wimpy power, convertibles, small, offered in a variety of "cute" colors are among a few attributes.

VW bug or Eos, toyota celica and hyundai tiburon to name a few. I've got a neighbor who's a married guy with kids, he had a bug convertible he used to roll around with the top down and the flower holder filled and now has a lil tealish colored Eos that he zip's around town in. Everytime i see him i say to myself... "what a susie"

My definition of a chick car is one that when you see on the road, you expect to see a female driver in it. Examples:

VW New Beetle
Mini convertible
Any kind of VW convertible
etc.

I drive a white Nissan Titan....
I drive a black Mini Cooper S....

I drive around with plenty of chicks in both.

And the fuel pumps and o2 sensors are fine in both.

1. Smallest motor available in lineup.
2. Car designed for looks vs. function
3. Emphasis on comfort vs. performance
4. Colors such as teal and purple
5. Baby seats
6. More than two good cup holders, though we don't have any

Good examples:
RX 350
Toyota Camry
Nissan Murano
Hyundai Tiberon
Scion, any
6 cylinder mustangs
4 cylinder Jettas without turbos
Any minivan made by any company in anytrim any year.
PT Cruiser
Eclypse
Any Volvo or Saab

Guy stuff
Manual transmissions
Sport packages
Performance motor packages
Stiff suspensions
4x4
V8s
Turbos
Superchargers


I don't agree with the vert=girl or gay
EX:
Shelby KR500RR vert
E93 vs E91
Vette verts
Jeeps
Old Broncos


Gay/girl verts
Audi TT
Beatle
Solara
S2000
6 cylinder mustang
Merc SLK
PT Cruiser
G6
Volvo
Saab

Thanks 92tripleblack.

From all responses, it appears it's pretty much a subjective view beyond certain features...

Generally agree with you except with the inclusion of the S2000 as a gay/girl vert. The S is a raw, dedicated sports car. Most chicks hate it after riding in it once.
