so....How *unimportant* is the quality of a man's car anways?

I know that all the ladies say it doesn't matter if a guy drives a shitbox, but what do they think of all the guys who drive the proverbial "tuner car", aka rice rocket? Or cars that are literally falling apart, and void of interior panels. A lot of modified cars on the street are pretty bearable to ride in. The exhaust isn't too loud, and the car is riding on simple shocks/springs which doesn't really affect the ride comfort.

My car on the other hand is pretty extreme. It's loud as fuck and the suspension is titty bouncing stiff. I love my car and it drives exactly the way I want it to. Whenever I have a girl in the car, I usually warn them ahead of time. They say it's ok, but their face tells a different story. There have been instances in the past, where it was a deal breaker for me. Normally, I wouldn't give a fuck (and I haven't been), but lately I've started to wonder if I should maybe tone my car down a bit or possibly get a second car or steal my bro's car when going on dates or heading downtown for a night out. I am even thinking of getting rid of my ride in favor of normal commuter tranportation!

REVscene being a car board, what members have gone through this? I know many and most ppl have opted to just sell off their finely tuned rides and move to normal (read: mundane) modes of transportation. Ultimately, that's not me. I would prefer to show people upfront who I am, and what I'm about.

And as usual, ladies can throw in their two cents.

If your car doesn't have room enough to have sex in, that's usually an issue.

different girls care about different things. where i live now, girls could less about my car....cause its not a lifted truck, so its nothing. most girls dont know cars so they dont know 'why' you car rides like shit, even its cause of a really sweet expensive suspension, they just know that it rattles their teeth like crazy. obviously they're not going to like riding in something uncomfortable. doesnt mean they wont though.

me id never change my car for a girl. its my favorite toy. most id do is turn the system down so we can talk.

I think girls view how you treat your car as a sign of how you would treat her. Keep it clean at the very least.

i'm going to have to agree. passion is perhaps a good word to describe this. if you're passionate about your car, no matter the style or "coolness" of it, it shows focus and dedication.

plus, the car your drive shouldn't be a deciding factor on whether or not a girl wants to be with you or whatever. it's just a car. the hottest guy could be driving the hottest car in the world, but if he's lame...yeah. good luck.

If a girl has a problem with your choice in how you tune your car, then i don't think it'll work out in the long run.

As for the condition of the car... If it can sit people, without a funky smell and isn't loud to the point where you can't have a conversation, i think it's fine. Oh and no pests/signs of pests.

So if it's worse than that ^ maybe it'd be a good idea to borrow a car. Remember, what you're doing too. If you're going to a nice dinner, and the girl is all dressed up, no matter how fancy of a dinner it will be. If it's going to ruin her pricy dress, she'll just call a taxi :P

My car is as riced out as you can get. Loud Paint, Loud Exhaust, Loud Stereo, Loud Underglow, Body Kit etc... and I don't give a shit what ANYONE thinks about it. It's my car and I will do with it as I please. However... there are times when it IS a little much ie. going out on a nice classy date. Hard to act suave when your climbing over your door bars and out of a rice rocket. For that purpose we would take my GF's car. Now that I have driven in her RSX-S so much I appreciate a nice comfortable ride (I'm still going to turbo it though )

Berz out.

and yeah, it's somewhat hard to carry a convo in my car. you need too speak loudly to be heard.

no one likes being seen cruising in a good condition semi "vintage" car? hell, it's old enough to drink/gamble in the USA and older than a lot of RS members too!

edit: thx for the keeping the car clean tip. my car is always a work in progress and sometimes I leave stuff lying around.

LOL.. okok.. A girl once told me.. depending on your car.. is what type of girl your gonna attract .. for example.. Rice Rockets: high school girls. Sedan, Suv's (mid level prices i mean).. attracts mature girls...Baller rides (Mercedes E55, BMW M6 ..) attracts the material fake implanted boob type chicks.. passion for ur car is one thing.. thats good.. cuz it only matters what you think... NOW... if you wanna fix the problem of dates.. then yes.. get another car.. lol.. it doesnt have to be a fancy car.. just a normal 4 door commuter that doesnt make it feel like ur at a D1 competition..
Now personaly i love my car to death.. but i bought a second car for this very reason.. IF you didnt tune the shit outta ur car.. then i say its a fair bet that u could keep it as a daily driver.. but from what ur saying with ur situation.. i say get a second car.. Its kinda like having a sports bike.. you can only ride it so much.. If you put alot of heart into your ride.. i say keep it.. But u wanna fix ur issues.. get a second ride..

drive a baby blue '92 Tercel with pimped out Mario plushies galore and as long as it gets me from point A to point B, she's fine, and i'm fine.

except that in the snow, i just drive my mom's 4runner + snowtires FTW.

although having a better mid-end car would be a bonus, nonetheless. I can barely do 50 while going uphill on boundary ahaaha

one of my friends used to drive a Ford Tempo...like 1983 with rusting rear 1/4 panels and fucked up suspension...he picks up some of the great looking chicks in town.

it's weird, but those chicks didn't care, cause he knows how to talk

Tastefully modified cars are cool.
Ricemobiles make me laugh at you.
Performance cars are cool- for performance.

My boyfriend has a lowered, stiff-ass, loud, gutted, no sound system, performance car. I love it, on the track. Fun to drive? Yes. Comfortable? No. Which is why we have a daily commuter.

If your car is a toy, play with it. But have an alternative if you or your girl doesn't want to play with it the same way.

If they are that stuck up that they care what I drive, then they don't have to get in and can fuck off, simple as that. I don't want anything to do with a girl that stuck up.
