Convertibles ok for guys?

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by RugbyBuck, Jul 28, 2004.

    Having thought about this a little in a discussion last night, my take is that it is almost never ok for a guy to drive, much less own, a convertible. I'm willing to believe that there must be some model that is ok, that is, that doesn't make a guy look like a total cheesy dick with a comb-over and a medallion, gay, or both, but I haven't found one yet. The two closest to ok for me would be a Shelby Cobra (not a repli-car) or an old Mustang. Thoughts?
  2. those two are good...I'll toss in rag top Jeeps...

    Yes, I would think that Jeeps would be ok as would anything with rollover protection (off road vehicles).

    Good point, guys. I hadn't included Jeep-type vehicles. Jeeps, Land Rovers, etc. - OK; Suzuki Samuris, etc. - NO.

    Correct, those are estrogen transportation.

    My dad has always wanted one of these.


    Is a Viper ok or is that too gay?

    You should also add the 56-57 T-bird as convertibles cool for alpha males to drive.

    In all my travels I have seen a few Vipers on the road and they were all driven by women. I saw one last week in TX. Now one of my customers owns one but he keeps the damn thing in a warehouse and never drives it.
  8. I have to admit, once, without a great deal of cash, I purchased a new tracker. It's a little on the soft side compared to a jeep, but it did a great job.

    So many times I took it off road, camping with my son, and we had a blast. The upgraded system blaring his favorite: "Bad to the Bone". Always have the top down.

    vipers are chick cars? ok now you've crossed the line. vipers kick the shit out of any other car on the road.

    i think some people need to check if they have a dick....then they can drive whatever they want.
  10. Great point 27. Maybe someone should start a thread...

    You are a viper driving soccer player?
    How did they let you on this board? :biggrin:

    Read my post. I have probably seen at least a dozen vipers actually being driven in traffic. And yes in each case it was driven by a women. I am 6-4+ and 255. I sat in my customers Viper and while I fit I could not imagine having to drive it for any length of time.

    Reality check. This is an internet board for fun and discussion. The serious stuff ends up on the political board. Only 38 more days until football season. Then we will have some things to really argue about.

    Nobody is trying to tell me I can't drive my 68 'stang convertible, are they? Are motorcycles also gay?

  14. HaHa KKA you tell us...

    I think the question is:
    "are guys that drive sissy convertables to guys what poodles are to dogs?"

    Damn, not the answer I wanted. My mustang is now for sale... No, not my mustang. Did I say mine? I meant my wife's mustange. Yeah, that's it...
