WHITE a girl's color for a car?

I'm shopping around for a new sports car and one of the items is color. Is white a girl's color? All of the girls in my neighborhood drive white cars. So I was thinking of black. But with 100*+ summers it can get really hot. What do you guys think? And I don't care for gray, silver, red, blue, green, etc.

I don't see a ton of evidence pointing to white strictly being a girl's color. The only problem with a white car is it looks alot dirtier alot earlier just because of the nature of the white car

sounds like the girls in your area are smarter that the guys... they get the white and don't worry about the heat whereas you're actually worrying about it.

Be a man!

Quit worrying about car colors having an affect on your appearance of masculinity.

Try comparing it to a BLACK car the same number of days after a wash...

I saw a study on the news saying most white car drivers are women.

It's not the color of the car as much as the car itself. You look like a fairly big guy. Do you really think being seen driving a Volkswagon Cabriolet or a Mazda Miata or a the new Volkswagan Beetle will seem less 'girly' if the car is a 'masculine' color? Another 'chick car' I personally can't stand are the Pontiac Sunfires.

But what do I know? I own a GT Mustang with a 400+hp 351 engine. If I were you, I'd worry less about the color and focus more on the car, but that's just my .02.

Depends on what the hairdresser drives I guess. If it's a Ford GT then I think the racing stripes are mandatory but if they're driving a Smart Car, then it's probably only a strip 'cause I don't think those cars are wide enough for stripes.

I'm not considering any American car. German engineering for me, ja. I have my eye on the new 2007 VW GTI 2.0T 6MT. And it's easy to mod to get higher performance.

Here are pictures of it in white and black. The white is what VW uses in all of their commercials where men are driving them. In fact, no women are driving the GTI so that's good. I wouldn't want to get a girl-car like the VW Jetta or Beetle.

If I saw you in this car, the fact that it's white wouldn't be what made me think you were driving a girlie car.

I learned a long time ago that every man needs one good pink shirt. Seriously.

Sport it, and brush off anyone's crap about it. Women love confidence, and any guy that can be confident wearing pink will be a leg and shoulder ahead of the rest. This also works well in meetings at work. People only make fun of it when you seem awkward about it.

As for cars, buy what you want. I prefer metallic burgundy color for my cars. I don't know the name of it, but GM still uses it on cars.

If I were you, I'd hold out for the Scirocco (sp?). That thing could be pale pink and still kick ass.

Besides, a real man can rock any color he wants. I have lavender walls in my living room. Nice, color, lavender. I'm a periwinkle fan too.
