Indeed. Yet I still can't shake the impression that the New Beetle is a "chick car".There's a few of us, but - and maybe I'm alone here - the notion that the any vehicle pertains to a particular orientation (especially as an "icon") is a bit antiquated and may be considered by some as offensive.
I don't think I could quite take it to unicorn decals... but other than that I agree with you.I drove a Miata for 4 years and loved every minute of it, despite it having a "chick car" reputation here in Manly Arizona. My self worth is wrapped up in how well I take a corner, not what some testosterone-poisoned Hummer driver thinks. If the car was pink with foofy ribbons and unicorn decals, but cornered like my MINI, I'd drive it with pride.
You called?Gay car? Chick car? Hairdressers and estate agents? But what about the geriatrics? The white-haired.. the seniors... the downright elderly?
How many times has your attention been captured by, say, a cool Cooper S.. and a 'mature' couple get out? Surely they should they be driving an Agila?
Hands up! for the silver foxes. Yeah.
