You forgot one... "She cannot drive stick and trying to learn is worse than bull riding."

How about "Women are inherently unqualified to drive a Porsche?"

How about men who are intimidated by their women?

Nice poll..... NOT! *LOL*

On behalf of my wife (who also hold down a job and votes), I'd like to give it, 2 fingers up:


We don't allow this type of emoticon on the site.

Thanks for sharing.

Sorry, didn't know the site only allowed women-bashing and off-colour humor-related innuendo.

I second that. My girlfriend likes my car, but I dread teaching her how to drive a stick with my car. So it's a no go for me. I always drive. Maybe one day she can buy a Tiptronic.

My car is my wife's car. I'm lucky that she lets me drive it.

Well, my GF rides a Triumph 675 sportsbike, drives a stick Mitsubishi, and pilots helicopters... and she's kind of cute too -- hence, I voted "I always let her drive my Porsche because I'm a wuss."

(btw, here's she preparing for a modeling job: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PuB1cyjmkzg )

I guess you did not see the grinning emoticon in my post. This is inserted to suggest that the post was IN JEST!

I guess bashing is in the eye of the beholder?

Now, would I take the following choice as men bashing?



I always let her drive my Porsche because I'm a wuss

I know one girl with a stick shift (mini cooper) I always ask her to let me drive and she always insist I do the same with the Boxster....grrr.

as for the GF driving the porsche? well, i tought her to drive stick on it. then, we got her a G35 coupe. now we're teaching her to drive the porsche on the race track. suprisingly, she's fairly quick already!

funny thing is she scares the hell out of me on the street because she seems absent minded. on the track, though, i feel safe with her behind the wheel. i guess speed really does make people focus...

No, that's Helimot himself (the leather manufacturer), I'm the guy shooting that dinky video. If you haven't seen those yet, here are two more of those silly videos:
