Yeah, what really makes it a "girls car"?
I think what he was trying to say was that if it'* flashy, sporty looking and gutless. You know "it looks real pretty" but isn't. SSsuperchargedEi would have worded it that way, but his foot got caught in his mouth.

No offence to the females of the club who actually know something about cars, but most girls (and some guys) I know, only like cars based on how they look on the outside. I know the typical "girl car" around here is the Mazda Precidia. You'd be hard pressed to find a guy driving one of those around here.

The Eclipse however is definately a guys car (around here anyways)..... I've never seen a girl drive one.

You are right.

Before my manager left ccity we had arrangements on getting one out to the store on launch weekend and decking it out with kicker stuff. but then that place went to the dogs... as for me... I really like the look of them but it'* just too small I think.

I wouldn't classify the Corolla as a girl'* car. It'* more of just a sensible runabout that anybody and everybody drives.

holy crap ladies, it was just a joke!!! seriously all i see around here is girls in both 2nd and 3rd gen eclipses. colors of their choice are red, silver, baby blue, black. i could probably drive around for about ten minutes and take 20 different pictures of chicks driving their eclipses

The front looks like a Pontiac and the back looks like a 350Z. I dont like it and according to Motor Trend that things weighs 3500 pounds.

I wasn't offened. Everyone knows (or at least has figured out) that I'm with about 90% of the female population who doesn't give a crap about what'* under the hood or how it works. All I care is that I look darn good in it (hence the GA ).

I wish I thought like that. Wanting to go faster is such a stupid hobby. I cant sleep at night thinking about new stuff to get. It sucks.
