They say it's not
What the hell do they know? All I know is, every time I'm out in any one of my T's, especially "Pete" the '12 Roadster Pickup, it's a veritable chick magnet! Kind of hard to run around in it with the wife when chicks in their 20's and 30's come running up to see it closeup when we're at a traffic light!
It looks as though Fox may have got this from Hagerty. Maybe it's time to switch to J.C. Taylor.
Hagarty sure knows how to hire the chicks to work at their booths at swapmeets and T meetings...
Like putting apples and lemons in a dish to see which one chicks peck at. Total BS.
I have a cut down 26 pick up convertible top and if I had known these things would attract young women like it does I would have had three of them when I was young and single.
That was the dumbest thing I have read so far today.
I was driving a Model T on the day that I met my wife. I talked her into going for a ride and she liked the car so much, that she was willing to put up with it's driver.
That settles it.
the write up on the rambler is hilarious (orthopedic shoe!!!haha) But they don't know what they are talking about, those larks had fully reclining seats for crying out loud!!!!!! I have to admit though, that T would most likely have a lot more of men (including me)hanging off of it than women!!!!!! LOL
Not sexy, eh? _Next time you're entered in a car show, park next to the million-dollar Ferrari and see which car the spectators come over to see. _Nothing built within the last 90 years can even come close to the sheer sexiness of a Tin Lizzie, except maybe the 1966 George Barris Batmobile—and that's only if Julie Newmar is seated in it and wearing her Catwoman costume!
Not sexy? My touring sure attracted these two at a car show.
I think I have posted this story before, but when I was a junior and senior in college, I took my 23 Depot Hack (made from a touring) to college with me. I could drive it down the street after 5 PM in front of the girls dormitories and sorority houses, and have girls running to get a seat on board before there were no seats left (it had unpadded bench seats), and the running boards were filled. Meanwhile, the guys with their muscle cars, Malibus, Camaros, Mustangs, and such were giving me dirty looks and an occasional, single finger salute.
Also, it got me and the Hack written up in an article in the University's Graphic Arts department magazine.
Someone needs to get ahold of Bill Vanderburg and tell him there is an emergency on this thread that only Christina can fix. He'll know what to do and it will answer this question, definitively, once and for all.
Oh yes, Christina! Where is she when we need her?
Oh, a 8x10 is hanging on the shop wall.
Well, being kinda still new, I don't know Christina...but since it's like the name of my '15--Christine-- I'd like to see a pic of her? Mack, can you post ur pic?
Lol Tim - you've probably seen her and not known that was her name. Very attractive lady in high heels and a bikini reaching down and holding the crank of a white brass-era speedster.
Her pictures make regular appearances on the forum.
Not sexy? Never have I owned another car that beautiful women have asked for a ride in... Mine is a chick magnet therefore my wife will not allow me to drive her to the beach unsupervised!
Depends on your definition of sexy. I think of Liz as funky. ;o)
I laughed like hell when my brother chided a chest-pounding coworker over his macho inclined choices in EVERYTHING
over his neverending desire to own some "L-something 1970-ish Chevelle (naturally in red) because it was so "awesome".
Widdo Bwudder pointed out that a car like this was nothing but a MAN MAGNET, and if he didn't believe him, just try to
remember a time when a car like that was surrounded by females and NOT a bunch of dudes. Mr. Macho pondered it for
a while and came back to Widdo and said sheepishly, "You know, I'd never thought about it like that before. It's kinda gay,
when you think about it" ! His raving about monster trucks and "hot Chevys" has slowly turned into an interest in Studebakers
and other seldom seen cars.
Someone needs to show them a bright red Torpedo Runabout with the top down.
Like this one !
Sex appeal has nothing to do with my choices in cars. I buy what I want regardless of what others think of them. I have a couple "macho" musclecars, a "chick" sportscar, a few "old man" antiques, a "redneck" truck, and a "complicated" modern musclecar. All of them were bought to please me rather than others.
The people who give me crap about owning a Miata have never driven one on a race track. The people who make fun of 4x4 truck owners have never towed 10,000lbs or needed to get to work when there is 18" of snow on the roads. The people who don't like the resto-mod style of my Chevelle have never driven anything 750 miles from home, raced it for 3 days, and driven home without carrying any tools. The people who don't get my attraction to old slow Fords haven't toured around and seen some of the best sights the country has to offer in an open car at 35mph.
Burger, IMHO that '70 LS6 Chevelle certainly is "awesome" in every conceivable way... 450hp 454 from the factory was the highest rated HP of any American production car until the Dodge Viper finally dethroned it several decades later. Great style, loads of fun, and from a historical perspective, it was the king of the HP wars at the peak of the first musclecar era.
Yes Steve, like that one. I think my black Runabout looks antique with the top up and sexy with the top down. I wondered what could be sexier. The one you show above should do it. I wouldn't rule out the Coupes either.
The article seems to give the impression that the YUGO was a warmed over Italian car and sent to the US. The Yugo was a Yugoslavian car.
Terry, I thought the single finger salute was the international sign of friendship.
John, the Yugo section was correct, it was an italian Fiat design from start even if it was built in Yugoslavia, later Serbia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zastava_Koral
I thinks T's are pretty sexy, at least until I get into them and they suddenly lose all sex appeal.
Girls always like a boat ride
Girls always like a boat ride
Why doncha come up and see my T's some time?
Seth...all I can say is OMG!! ...you just made my day!! woweeee. Thanks! I do believe I did see her a while back...can't believe I either forgot, and definitely didn't catch her name before.

Sorry Boss .... gonna have to disagree with you on styling. Fat and bloated isn't my idea of good styling. The A-body GM cars all got a stout dose
of blunting in the nose and rear for 1970, and the inexplicable stuffing of the tail lights through the bumper doesn't just look cheap and cheesy, it is
just plain ugly.
Don't know what to say about HP and engines. Buick had a wicked GS and GSX for 70, Mopar had the slew of Hemi cars, and FOMOCO ???
The jones for me is the overall downturn of crisp styling that occurred after 1967-9, the Chevelle would be a great example. The 68 had crisp lines
and sharp edges. By 70 it was blunted in every way, giving it a look of being the 68's chubby sister. As far as I am concerned, Detroit closed the doors
and turned off the lights in 1970 and everything built since is a poor excuse for a car compared to what came before.
I must be going to the wrong car shows!!!
You are looking at this wrong. It is not WHICH car show that is the problem, it is the car show
idea that is wrong. Standing around all weekend with the hood up ? Hoping to be "good enough"
to win a ribbon ? That sounds about as fun as competitive latrine cleaning or a delightful dental
Drive that old dog and know that you don't need no stinkin' attaboys from the hoy pelloy !
Burger, some us thrive on cars shows. Some just drive. I do both. I can't explain why I like shows so much but, look how many people go to them. Here is a pic of my sexy ride with some nice Canadian girls. I posted it before but, there's lots of new people here who NEED to see it.
