Tell Me More Tell Me More Like Did He Have A Car

Women can be quite superficial at times. We all want certain things in a man and the list usually looks something like this:

  • Must be Good looking;
  • Intelligent;
  • Chivalrous;
  • Must have a good Sense of humor;
  • Good Manners;
  • Lots of money - In fact this should be at the top of the list; and
  • Must have a Nice car

So I thought I would explore the "Nice Car" scenario in this post. The term "Nice" is relative of course and we all have our favorites. So I thought I would make a list of certain cars and identify them with a celebrity of my choosing. I have decided to use the following cars and list some of the traits associated with men who drive them (based on my opinion of course) and then if I were single (hypothetically speaking), would I date or marry a guy who drives one.

(Specific Car model is not relevant)

Mercedes Benz




What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Entitled
  • Spoilt
  • Arrogant
  • Dick
Would I date or marry him:
  • I've never been a fan of a Mercedes - even with the shirt off top down.

BMW




What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Think they own the road
  • Selfish
  • Talk down to people
Would I date or marry him:
  • Nope - Doesn't appeal to me at all.  

Jaguar






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Suit kind of guy
  • Sophisticated
  • Non-spontaneous
  • Not bothered about peer pressure
Would I date or marry him:
  • It is a nice car but I will take this under consideration - perhaps just a short term affair - who knows, I may need a lawyer one day!

Audi





What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • A guy who is not sure if he should be driving a Mercedes, a Lexus or a BMW.
  • Settled for second best
  • Non-committal
Would I date or marry him:
  • Maybe - The car doesn't say enough about him.  Perhaps a few dates to test the water and have a little fun

Land cruiser / Prado 






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Ready for a challenge
  • Spontaneous
  • Rough & Ready
Would I date or marry him:
  • I personally drive a Prado and I quite like the rough and ready type - so a definite maybe

Land rover






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Not afraid to get his hands dirty
  • A man who know's how to change the oil (after all - you have to be able to fix it every time it breaks down)
  • Rough & Ready
Would I date or marry him::
  • Just like the Land Cruiser - a definite maybe. 

Range Rover (Not the Evogue - those are for Women drivers only!)






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Stable, solid guy
  • Successful, yet adventurous
  • Safe
  • Rough & Ready
Would I date or marry him:
  • A definite YES (Hubby used to drive one - But it kept breaking down all the time so he dumped it!  Pity)

Porsche






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Spontaneous
  • Exciting
  • Gorgeous smile smirk
  • Abs to die for
Would I date or marry him:
  • Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, oh YES.....  Even if it doesn't have a back seat!  Sorry - what were we talking about again...... Would I marry him?  Not on your life!

Porsche Cayenne






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Someone who used to drive a real Porche and has had to settle for second best for practical reasons
  • Committed
Would I date or marry him:
  • Hmm - Probably.  Perhaps just good enough for an affair though as he is probably taken

Lexus






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Boring
  • Practical
  • Didn't think of a Mercedez Benz 
Would I date or marry him:
  • No - not really

Bentley






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Loads of money
  • Born with a silver spoon in his mouth
  • Who cares about the rest - he is loaded (Normal rich guys who earned their money will drive something a little more showy)
Would I date or marry him:
  • Definitely - he is loaded - perhaps he'll only live another 6 months

Aston Martin






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  • Very successful
  • Oozes money
  • Could be fun
Would I date or marry him:
  • Yes - No questions asked!


Ferrari (Only red ones count - any other color is a fake!)






What sort of guy I perceive drives one:
  1. Show-Off
  2. Pretentious
  3. Guy who is trying to make up for "what's not under the hood"
Would I date or marry him:
  • I could "get off" on just looking at this car, but I'm afraid I would never date a guy who own's one - just too pretentious for me and probably too much competition in the wings.

Hope I didn't offend anyone - I am always open to persuasion!

  3. Nice choices.
    Would go with the Bentley and Ferrari if I knew any women who drove them. Why are cars normally linked to men?

    1. If I had a Ferrari, I'd go with you ;). Not sure why they are linked to men - cars also always referred to as a she - I suppose from an age old era where women were not allowed to drive!

  5. I love this. I always wanted a "when I get super rich" Aston Martin. I will be happy to take him as well. My husband won't mind, Simon Baker is on my cheat list.

  7. AWESOME post, Lanthie! So clever! But the cars don't matter to me because I would take Johnny Depp hands down whether he was driving the most expensive car out there or riding a rusty bicycle. Always Johnny.....

    1. Thanks MM. Ditto about Johnny Depp - I don't think there is a women on this planet of any age that would say no to him. The stuff all our fantasies are made of!

  8. It's amazing how a car can pass us by and in no time women can guess at the type of person who drives it (I know it's just fun here) but you'd be surprised how many women are attracted to the car more than the guys who drive it.

    You mentioned the Range Rover that your hubby use to drive, and stated that 'it kept breaking down all the time so you dumped it' did you mean the car or your hubby? ha ha ha.
    I'm not really into cars, but some of them in the post look really nice.

    1. I'm afraid hubby dumped the car and I'm still stuck with hubby. Haven't found a newer better model yet!

  9. HI! Love the blog! Great post as well. I am an SUV guy. I drive an old Dodge Durango (2001 to be exact) but it gets me where I need to go. How would that qualify on your dating scale???

    1. Hi Matt. Glad you like my blog and will be a regular visitor. Not familiar with the dodge Durango so will have to take this under advisement . You do fall into the rough and ready category so that goes in the pro column.

  10. Hey Lanthie!

    Terrific post. I am an old school American muscle car guy. Give me a Boss 302, Shelby, or Mach 1 Mustang over any of these cars. None are as beautiful as an old Mustang. That was a real man's car!

    1. Thanks Phil . I really know nothing about cars and have never heard of some of the ones you mention. You are going to have to educate me.
