Talking Masculine Car?

I really want to order a z4, but my wife and friends think it's a "Barbie" chick car. What are your thoughts?

No man, with a degree from A&M, in his right mind would own a Z4. Go out an buy yourself a good old America Corvette.

Not feminine at all from those few that I have seem around. And now that I think about it more closely, I can't remember a time I have seen a woman driving a Z4.

Tell them that the 300 horses in your "supposed chick car" would beg to differ.

Corvettes are for muscle heads with at least 3 gold chains and too much cologne.

I don't think so. It is the owner that makes the car not the other way around. Anyone can drive a minivan and still looks cool.

So tired of this "chick car" thing

Got tired of this argument when I had the Miata! People that utter such stupidities have never driven a Miata or a Z4! These are true driver's cars, and true drivers can be male or female.

The fact that those cars are simply beautiful does not make them a "Barbie" car, and BTW, if I recall the commercials, "BARBIE" actually drove a 'Vette... While the new Corvettes are great sportscars the pre 1984 behaved more like trucks than true sports cars.

sophistication does not make it less masculine. F1 race cars and their drivers are simply more sophisticated that NASCAR which specializes in running in circles.

Finally, for the Corvette driver who would not be caught in a Z4, in french Québec where I come from we say: "Grosse Corvette, petite quéquette" which literally translates to
BIG Corvette, SMALL dick....



Loving my Z4

I don't believe Barbie was anatomically "correct" during the period in question. If our neighbor to the north did not have direct knowledge of Barbie's thoughts (so to speak) on the cool metal of the times, however did he glean her innermost secret desires? There's a girl involved here somewhere, but I don't think it was Barbie...

Masculine Car?

If you let something like a "chick car" reputation get to you, you need to sit down and have a long, nice chat with your PENIS. There's no need to be insecure. The car was designed by two WOMEN and it attracts a lot of WOMEN. I myself would rather have WOMEN come up to me to compliment my car than guys.
