Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

We all know the myth that if you got a spanking gorgeous car then you’re going to be drawing in allot of divine ladies, like a pack of wolfs hunting there pray.

So I though Il ask my misses if she get aroused or drawn into men driving damn good looking cars around. She said honestly it doesn’t do much for her. I hope she wasn’t just being nice to me knowing my temper.

So I ended up asking on average of 18 aesthetically pleasing ladies at work and got the following results:

6 said: Doesn’t do much for me
8 said: Give them the second look or even a wink
3 said: If they stop at the lights I might introduce my self
1 said: Ask for a lift and a exchange of numbers


So the results look pretty promising. Now to conclude my research I would like the men’s insight in to what kind of responses you lot have had driving gorgeous cars around.

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

I think 12 of them were kidding you on. Unless you were talking to the stereotypical gold-digger I'm sure most women don't care too much what the car is beyond what it tells them about the owner.

However, MrsJim was initially attracted by my lovely, shiney black Corolla GT way back when before she knew who owned it. She then engineered an opportunity for me to offer her a lift home. She dumped her boyfriend whose new-ish but boringEscort Ghia she was using to commute and we've been happily married for a long time now

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

i once got dumped back when i was car-less in favour of a bloke who had a white nova

but i do know of a girl who has said she could definitely go for any man who drives an alfa romeo . i haven't seen her though, she probably looks like she crawled out of a bin in outer mongolia


@ Ish - you drive a diesel, mate. it's never gonna work

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

What about us beautiful women who are attracted to owning beautiful cars? It's as much about the aesthetics of driving as it is looking.

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

Have had a lot more interest from women in the V6 compared to driving the JTD.

So they either don't like diesels, or they do like big wheels, spoilers and large exhaust pipes...

People give the Brera second looks ALL the time. I don't think they're looking at me though! Which is fine cos I'm taken, life's too busy for added complications!

I think the idea that you can pull simply by driving a cool car is a complete myth.

My last housemate had a F360 F1.

I'll never forget the woman that gave him her number at the traffic lights.

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

I was driving a bmw 3 series soft-top (It was my mothers car, honest) last year.

Stopped in traffic at lights when a rather attractive blonde walked past definately looking in my direction.

She turned to her equally attractive friend and said...

"Nice Car, shame about the driver though"

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

I'm sure there must be some sort of halo effect, in much the same way that if someone is on TV they seem slightly more attractive. I mean, what other reason could htere be for John Prescott having a wife and a mistress if it wasn't for the fact that he had two Jags

Re: Beautiful cars attract beautiful ladies?

plenty of women out there will go for a bloke in a (very) flash car. but it's nothing to do with the car itself, it's to do with how wealthy the driver must be to be able to buy a ferrari/porsche/lambo etc etc. women go for wealth & power, men go for looks. sad but true

or maybe i'm just bitter cos i'm ugly and skint

No, I think it's the young and beautiful that attracts.
