I am glad people are not basing things on personal bias and simply evaluating sound design principles :)

The guys who came up with the Aztec took "sound design principles," tore them into little pieces, smashed them with a hammer, and then flushed them down the toilet!  :lol:

One I haven't heard mentioned....the Renault Le Car. It looked like le carp! (deliberate misspelling - censors didn't like the real word)

I'd love to hear you explain that in more depth.


All you see drive them or woman and teenage girls so therefore there a girls car. Besides if it doesnt have a bowtie on it it isnt worth driving

The Pontiac Aztec edges out the new Rolls Royces and every other current "stylish" hump with a grill like a MAC truck and swollen fenders like an old VW.

OK, you win, I can't fight that sort of logic: Mustangs are girls' cars. 

 

And having never owned a Chevy (nearest I came was a Daewoo) I can't dispute your bowtie claim either - but I guess you're right on that one too.

Back when I met my wife she had a '74 Mustang II coupe, orangy yellow with a black vinyl top. It looked like a boxed off retro version of the original '66 Mustang.   When I drove it people would tell me it was a 'girls car'. 

 

In 1991 when I was shopping around for my Geo Tracker,  I wanted a convertible, the top model, the LSI with a 5 speed.  90% of all the Trackers on the lots had automatics.  I had one salesman lose a sale by telling me I wouldn't find a 5 speed since this was a girls car and they all wanted automatics. Yes, I did find my yellow LSI with a 5 speed and air conditioning.  And it's served me well all these years.

 

And as far as that Austin Allegro Vanden Plas Estate... can you have it shipped to me in Pennsylvania?  I think it's actually interesting looking and would cause quite a stir if I drove it into a car show here.

Maby it was to pretty to be masculine? But what would people buy in 1964 (and a half) if they wanted a masculine and sporty image besides the Corvette? :) The styling from 67 onto 70 sure arent very girly imo.

Wow, an educated statement from what must be a world traveler with years of life experience. Or a tween that hasn't even earned his driver's permit, I'm not sure.

Don't judge teenagers. I don't know if he's one but there's the dying out breed like me who know alot about 1:1 mechanics and vehicles. Some even know more than other adults on here, so theres no need to judge us teens.

there are those of us that have been into cars since before we could walk. It's not explainable, just something we noticed early in life that developed into a passion.  My aunt used to tell me stories about when I was 2 years old, I made them follow the city bus in their car, stopping at each stop, and I'd watch the people get on and off.  It's always been cars for me, I never developed much of an interest in sports, but my heart beats fast whenever I see a cool car!

Here's a picture I drew when I was two or three. My grandmother was the great saver of all things and gave this to me when she was cleaning out her house. Kinda says it all!
