Ok, so the reason I ask is because my family wants to give me an old foreign station wagon as a hand-me-down. It works fine, but it's totally not the kind of car I want to drive!
Most of my friends drive BMWs. But I'm still a student, so I can't afford much right now. Wondering if it's better to take the station wagon (even though I hate it), or save up until I can buy a car I like.
Not at all. That being said, a certain vehicle can draw a girls attention. I grew up in the country, so guys in trucks definitely get a second glance. But I wouldn't date/not date a guy based on what he drove.
Because if a girl did care about what car you drive, she's just plain shallow. And would you really want to be with a girl who is that vain? I think not.
To be honest, I couldn't give a crap what kind of car the guy I'm dating drives. I don't know anything about cars. As long as it runs, has a decent radio and working AC, I'm good. It's not like we'll be living together in his car, it's just to get from point A to point B kind of thing for me.
Then again, I don't drive. So anyone I date always has to tote my ass around everywhere. But still. I want a BMW when I'm older, but I could care less about what kind of make and model guys I date drive now.
Yea I'm guessing they wouldn't care too much. But if its a rusty old dented-everywhere sweatbox... then yea.. even I would care! I think the car girls would think of as a minimum would be a used car, with a fairly nice paint job, not too many dents, and a working engine (one that doesn't make you get it fixed every week)...
