Post girls and cars

I thought I'd share this amusing story with everyone here. The other day I was hanging out with a group of girls and it was obvious none of them knew anything about cars. Why is that obvious? Because one girl claimed that any car with a V-any engine will beat a car with non-V cylinder engine. And all the other girls start taking that girls side and arguing some jargon and gibberish like I'd ever buy that.

You know, Guys- don't just make blanket statements about "ladies" not all of them are as clueless as you think.

Grrrr...I hate when men perpetuate the stereotype!

Why do I get the feeling that these inherently wrong and stunningly unimaginative stereotypes are being perpetuated by guys named Wendell who live in their parents' basements, play Star Trek games online for 8 hours every night and only actually come into contact with a real-live woman when she accidentally wanders into his favorite comic book shop to ask directions.
Guys, if you're trying to paint all women as idiots, at least try to put some creativity into it.
And if you treat women with respect, then someday you might actually get one to sit in your RS. Try it!
Uh, unless you're not 'in' to women - which would explain your numbingly obtuse attacks. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

THIS IS LONG SO BEWARE!! It's not my 2 cents it's my dime.
I find it amusing, actually, that with so much information in the world so readily available, that girls like this are still out there giving girls like me a bad name.
Now, I am no self-proclaimed expert. But when it comes to most things about cars, I am pretty damn knowledgable.
For example . .
My parents restored a classic Chevy when I was in middle school. I helped. By the way, anyone who thinks of restoring classics, the chrome is the most expensive part. (No one really makes real chrome nowdays. You buy parts like this from a dealer who calls it NOS, new old stock.)
My first car was an Olds Cutlass w/ the original 305. Some people speculated that it was the 268, b/c in the early 80's in keeping with fuel prices and shortages, GM started making this extremely small V-8 which got a whopping 17-20 MPG compared to the 305's 15-something.
My next car I got just for fun, 16valve Suzuki engine in a Chevy Tracker, which by the way, is Suzuki powered but the chassis is still made by Fisher, the GM chassis maker,which is manufacured in Canada on the Tracker.
My present car is the wonderful 2001 2.5 RS Impreza, also a world rally car driven by RB and JK, with its flat-four cylinder engine which I admire b/c it is SO easy to work on - the only thing I CAN'T do to this car is the timing belt. The nice thing is that this car has the limited slip control that Subaru introduced recently. My first mods were a muffler (custom exhaust) by Arospeed, a JC sports air intake, tint, STi bumper spoiler, a Euro plate, body-coloured side skirts. I am now considering a crank pulley and maybe some day a short shifter kit though those really don't do anything for me but change the feel of my driving.
Some day I may even lower my compression ratio by changing my head gasket. I'm learning to co-drive right now in rallies. I can change my own oil, fuel filters, plugs, and do some valve work. Like I said, I'm no expert, but according to your philospophy, I'm just a GIRL.
Oh, and by the way - I'm blonde. Naturally. Never dyed it. And my IQ is over 170.
There ya go, my dime.

subi chick just demonstrated another stereotype haha sorry, had to say it haha i couldnt get through 1/2 that paragraph.

As far as ignorance, why not try to teach someone instead of try to prove them wrong?

I forgot to mention I also wrote service.
Not trying to prove wrong. Trying to teach that not all girls know nothing about cars.
And no steroetypes here. Some of the longest posts here have been from men.

I will try to make this as politically correct as I can, but this is my opinion. Some guys(including me) dislike a girl that gets into the dirty stuff. I find girls very attractive when they focus on looking good for their significant other and know some stuff about cars, but really know about clothes and makeup and all that good stuff. They know that their significant other(the guys) will take care of the cars. Girls should want a romantic night or clothes, etc...for presents instead of a new sway bar or new crembo brake upgrade, etc...I can't really find the words to explain it enough, but I'm sure you all understand what I'm trying to say. Everyone has their own opinion and I am just sharing mine.

Bah you guys are just insecure that when a girl or girls start to get into cars and computers which are like the "guys" domain, you all wussies get jitters.
So in return, go learn things which are generally girl's domain like err.... hmm.... I myself should find those out.

LOL, Yeah I'd be willing to give cooking lessons or makeup lessons, which are the stereotypical girl domains. By the way if you know me, which a few of you do, my favorite thing to wear is skirts, I do things to stay looking pretty like work out and tan, and I cook like a pro. But I still turn a mean wrench
So you CAN be in a "girl's domain" and a "guy's domain" at the same time. Take my man for example. Loves his racing but he'll make bread with me too. (I make my own whenever I have time.)
Like Jim said, it's all in point of view.
Yay for Audi guy and Gambit!

Alllllrighty then. You know, women can look good and know a lot about cars and how they work. In fact, women can look good and know more about cars than some men. Just because a woman works on a car doesn't mean that she isn't concerned with how she looks. Now, if she works on a car, gets all dirty, and then doesn't clean up ... well, then maybe you have a point. But otherwise, forget it. Besides, a woman's focus should not be on "looking good for her significant other." If he's truly worth it, he's not too attached to what she looks like (at least I would hope so). Personally, I love women who can get under a car with me and help me change the oil or adjust the suspension or whatnot. And besides, afterwards, you both have to clean off all the grease somehow!

I agree with AudiGuy. If you think that women shouldn't work on cars and should just be into clothes, well, you might as well go the whole 9 yards & keep them at home so they can make you dinner & clean the house.

I think that my wife & I really have some good bonding sessions when we're working on our cars. & after meeting me, she does know more about cars than most men. And it's not like she's dirty & doesn't have fashion sense or anything.

I don't think he was saying that ALL girls didn't know anything about cars just the ones he was with that day. At least that is what I read into it. All of the ladies need to calm down. Sheesh!

Oh, I didn't mean that having the wife staying home to cook for you was wrong, I was just expressing my opinions like you were yours, but, that's just the way I am, & if I wasn't, then why would I say I am?

I dunno, that's just the way I am.

You guys are all wrong. The sexiest girls are the ones that know more cool stuff than you do. This is why Betty was always cuter than Veronica!

I never thought a person was defined by their maleness or femaleness, but rather the person defines their maleness or femaleness.

Individuals are free to choose their hobbies, likes, and dislikes. However, I do become concerned when these hobbies include fine woodworking, small explosives devices and the Post Office, or inviting neighbors over so you can stuff them into your freezer. Some things are still inherently wrong.
