Mine's a 2013 =) Yeah the old ones are pretty cool but lacking all the newer gizmos and such . I am spoiled by heated seats nowadays lol.

A new Mustang or Challenger is on my car wish list, I like the classic car looks but also the new technology. There's a  modern yellow Challenger I see a lot at classic car shows here

I drive a 2000 Miata LS, green with tan top and interior.  :)

Not sure if the Miata is a female car. What do you think about the newer VW Beetle or the VW Cabriolet?  I drive a Toyota Corolla and have been told a few times it's a chick car.

66 percent of Miatas are purchased by men. So that obviously precludes it from being a "chick car". Mazda actually modeled this car after the Lotus Elan which no one would accuse of being neutered. The original specs for both these cars were amazingly close and Mazda actually advertised it as sort of a poor mans version of the Elan. So if you drive one, you're a very macho sporty chick....congratulations.....now go shave your back. lol ;D :D

Cars don't have gender identities, people do. Drive whatever you like.

I drive a Chevy 2500 hd, but a dream car is a 67 Plymouth GTX.  But I love my truck.

I ride a Harley Sportster which is often called a girls' bike. I wonder if anyone told Sonny Barger he rode a girls' bike?
I've wanted a pink Dodge Demon or Superbee muscle car since they first came out

The color code for the origional MOPAR pink was "Moulan Rouge".  Look it up, great color.

To move forward is to leave behind that which has become dear. It is a call into the wild, into becoming someone currently unknown to us. For most, it is a call too frightening and too challenging to heed. For some, it is a call to be more than we were capable of being, both now and in the future.

I was very excited about getting one of those promotional Red Bull Mini Coopers with the giant can of Red Bull sticking up out of the back.  I actually followed one of them into a parking lot and spoke with the drivers.  It turns out that you have to work for them.  Now I don't even like Red Bull, and never drink it, but I'd be delighted to hand out promotional samples just to drive the little car with the giant can in the back.

p.s. my other dream car is the Pikachu-version Volkswagon Bug, which seems equally difficult to find.

Before my announcing my plans for transitioning I became infatuated with owning a Mazda Miata after taking my bosses Miata for a spin. So one morning I expressed my interest to several co-workers telling them this was the next car I wanted to purchase.

One started typing away on his computer while the other one said “they are chic cars, men don’t drive Miata’s”. Then the other co-worker directed me to his computer monitor and showed me a funny video making shame of men who own Miata’s. So I shut up and didn’t continue the conversation.

A year later I announced my plans for transitioning and guess what, the one co-worker looks at me and said, well guess it’s time for you to get a Miata.

Several months later at the advice of a friend who said the new 2016 models are worth waiting for and so I waited and purchased one.

Within the first month of owning the Miata I found a local Miata club in my city who meets every Saturday morning for coffee and then from a one to four hour drive where the longer runs we end up having lunch together. Guess what, out of 20 members there are (including me) three females in the club. Well do much for the Miata being a male car LOL. Even more interesting when going to lunch with a female co-worker she commented on the pink stitching on the upholstery, not something I believe a man would select.

I am very happy to have a car that suits me rather than buying into the standard run of the mill car like a had before, a Toyota Camry which I ended up selling to my next door neighbor and parks next to my Miata.

Just goes to show how something (or in other cases someone) can be stereotyped.

Cars in the club I belong to, mine is second from right.




I want a car which is whatever is sleek and cheap. A miata will do nicely. Except I am too poor to afford it.

My ideal cars are sporty cars that look feminine. I like Japanese cars because of all the curves. I don't want a minivan because it just looks lame, makes me feel like a domesticated city person, and I can't race it. It is also more top heavy and therefore unsafe. I don't want blocky cars that Vin Diesel would drive either. I want sleek slick Japanese looking cars. Some cars are more feminine than masculine. For instance the Pantera or Ford GT40 are feminine cars, even though they are not fully curved. Can't afford any of them though. VW Beetle wouldn't be my first choice, but if someone gave me it as a gift I'd be happy with it.
