^^^ LOL.

Some of my friends say a Mustang GT is a chick car, I just donít get that, it is a muscle car.
Although some call it a pony car and some call it a muscle car.
Some also say the color I have (Windveil Blue) is baby, powder, or chick blue; it is more cold steel blue.
I run a 93 octane torque tune and all I know is when I romp the pedal it screams like a raped banshee and takes off like a missile.

One time there were a guy and his child crossing the street way down the road and when a stomped it he grabbed the kids hand and drug him across the road in a major hurry.
I donít know maybe it is a chick car.

So I guess e93s, Corvettes, Ferraris, Porchesí, etc are chick cars?

For the most part, yes, or possibly anatomically challenged - though clearly you ignored that wimpy power was also a pre-requisite which neither of the cars you enumerated posess. A hardtop is a manlier option for sure. I own an e93 and am ok with it...It's too much fun to be concerned with. It would bnever be my primary car however.

If they are convertibles, yes. Don't forget the gay community as well. We don't want to discriminate

I don't think verts have to be chick cars, but I do believe they tell you the owner is more concerned with feeling cool or the wind blowing through his/her hair rather than the driving dynamics of the car. A baby dies everytime someone buys an M3 vert.

The S2000 doesn't meet any of your requirements for a "gay/chick" car, but I'm sure you already knew that. That's like saying that a lotus exige is a chick car because its a small two seater. The S2K is about as raw of a car as they come, especially the AP1.

Classic chick cars IMO would have to be the Toyota Celica, Mitsubishi Eclipse, and the Scion Tc.

I'll give you a pass on the S2000. I almost always see Asian or middle age goatee-wearing guys driving those (but not both).

Don't forget the perennial Golf Cabriolet. I don't think they come more affeminate than that one.

If ever there was a car to be dubbed the "official car of the Gay Pride Parade" it would indeed be the convertible Golf - or almost any VW convertible. It would also be just as much at home in a college freshman's sorority parking lot.

A true roadster has no glass side windows and has a rag top.

Haha... this is kind of true actually. Most of the guys that I knew through s2ki were asian, and the rest did have goatee's.

I forgot that they even made that car in a vert. I think that VW out did themselves and topped that car with the new EOS thing that they created, which has to be one of the ugliest, overpriced, "girly" looking cars on the road.

My personal feeling is that Asian cars, while not necessarily 'chick' cars are definitely not masculine.

Pappy now hides behind BIG LEATHER COUCH!!!!!

Lexus IS250 is definitely a chick car. Both my wife and my daughter drive them. SOMEWHAT sporty looking? Performance and handling are so so. Nice car that is boring to drive. Infact you don't really drive it, you just steer it.
