Re: 500 - Girls car?

I've driven Pinky, and been proud to do so. And my son wasn't phased by it either, although I think he enjoyed the Greeny blue Sisley better.

Ah, yes: but this from a man macho enough -- and in touch with his feminine side enough -- to drive a sparkly purple convertible...!

You do get lots of adoration when driving Pinky, though! I don't think I've been waved at so much in my life...!

500 - Girls car?

I think Mk1 Pandas are fine in pink, as are 500s and Ford StreetKas but the 14 plate Audi A1 that's just started to park in my work car park really doesn't suit it.

Re: 500 - Girls car?

I think it depends on the car itself - model/extras/colours etc

My girlfriend and I have just bought one and whilst it was her decision what we bought, I've got no problems with driving it. I don't consider it emasculating or anything!

Re: 500 - Girls car?

Standard fiat 500's are yes, though if you are to include Abarth's in this list then no. (My opinion obviously)

Girls car. Except for the Abarth! That's passable for a guy.

Re: 500 - Girls car?

Yes girls car.
Just look at the options, I'm sure there is a lip stick holder,
Barbie pink etc.
you can have butterfly wing mirrors or the full butterfly pack if you want to
But the Abarth is the mans option,

ID:	147696 depends on the colour and styling, I'm a girl and I think my 500 looks quite masculine, it looks mean and moody with its all black exterior and red leather interior, but I've never been a girly girl so it suits me
