Modern Vdubs are asexual, but the old Karman Ghia was the girliest car
on the planet.
Camaro in its latter days became a girlie car, too, IMHO.
I dunno, outside of mini-vans being mom cars, not much of anything
else I have a current gender-association with. Guys and girls both
drive SUVs (much too often). Mostly guys in F150s, I guess. A pretty
girl in an S2000 is hot, but then a pretty girl out of an S2000 is

I went from 12 mile round trip commute, ( by bicycle in good weather) to a
56 mile commute. I also own a 78 Chevy C10 and 2000 Subaru OB wagon.
