What women really think about 7 classic"car guy" cars

Reason #424 why I love my Defender.

P.S. I'd take that 959 in a heartbeat, though.

I took my wife to the Porsche Exhibit they had in Raleigh a while back and she didn't like the 959 either. Where as I was geeking out over it. All the technical babel I tossed out didn't phase her. She just wanted to look at Steve McQueen's 356.

I had a Porsche 550 Spyder. Not an original, but a Replica built by the famous Boyd Cottington. It was his personal ride. I purchased it and my wife didn't even want to drive it. She rode in it twice. We sold it after 6 months. Sport cars are not my thing. Although I would love a Panamera in white!!

Aside from the occasional 'nice Jeep' comment I get a similar response from women. Of course this is until they ride in it, sweat through their clothes, lose their hearing and smell like diesel exhaust afterwords when their impression of it can decline a bit. Whenever I'm able to get reasonable paint job and tidy up the interior there shouldn't be a bad thing to say about it

Haha - love the comments especially the one for the E30 Bimmer.

While positive the comments for the Defender are what everyone thinks but not close to the reality. Smelling like gear oil and having Rover parts all over the house/driveway and of course garage aren't mentioned.

If JLR was smart they would have a women design the look and interior of a new Defender and have guys like us do the layout of the motor and chassis. They could probably charge double what a Jeep JK goes for.

That is my wife 100% of the time.
The 959 would look nice next to the Defender.
Any man can buy a Jeep real men build their Trucks.

That's why I keep a can of febreeze in the car. One spray and all they remember is how nice it smelled and everything about it was cool.

Maybe he was referring to the hipster part of the sentence.
