Where does the stereotype "girls only pretend to like cars for guys attention" come from?
Do you guys really think that?
Most grills I've met are just into flashy. One said her favorite car is a "bmw m3 turbo" but the bitch didn't know shit about anything because she just wanted me to like her.
My ex was into trucks, lifts shit since South Carolina. Took her on a touge road and apexd a small s turn and she was "scared for her life"
That led into 3 arguments until we broke up, so to answer your question op, I'd say a vast majority.
I'm friends with two women who are auto mechanics by trade and they are not into cars. They both drive beater shitboxes they keep barely road legal. They didn't give a shit about cars other than as tools to go from A to B like any other woman, but they drive beaters because they liked wrenching on shit.
Otherwise, I think the stereotype holds true, these chicks are pretty unusual all things considered.
It probably comes from how a lot of girls who are into guy things make a big deal about how they're a girl who is into guy stuff.
>girl gamer! xD
>yes I'm a girl, and yes I lift weights
I don't think all girls who like cars are fake about it, but there is a decent number of them who are only in it because it's a way of getting attention. It sets them apart from other girls because they're "just one of the boys!"
I've known one who wasn't. Fucking sixteen year old girl once took her dad's MGF's engine apart and put it back together again, and she certainly wasn't doing it to impress ME, that's for damn sure.
Haven't known any other girls who have even pretended to see cars as anything other than appliances or status symbols.
tfw qt3.14 gf lurks /o/ with me and has patrician taste in cars
Id say it come from knowing girls that become interested in whatever their current boyfriend likes.
Whether that be a sport, a sport team, hobby, consumer brand, music, film or type of food.
But that being said, the professor I did my bacteriology research with was a serious gearhead. She had been wrenching since she was 10 because he dad liked to race cars back in the 50s and 60s. She had two corvettes and when she wasn't doing conferences or sending bacteria into space with NASA, she was at Firebird raceway in her C7.
Also she was really milfy.
most girls old enough to drive probably grew up with dollhouse and disney princess shit
they have not internalized the love for automobiles the way most boys do
as a result, most girls in "male hobbies" will be there with the intent of socializing, maybe meeting somebody.
always there will be the kind of girl who does it for the same reason as you, but that entirely depends on her parenting
there are real psychological differences between men and women but not to that extent
You got any pictures of her? I need to see it to believe it.....
Girls who are into cars exist, they're just not very vocal about it like the "CAR GURLZ"
It's the same shit with girl gamers and "GAYMUR GURLZ"
The latter streams on Twitch with their tits hanging out on the camera, while the former just plays in her free time often with her mic off
>sister sells her car to by a half ton to haul hay and a small house trailer with
>goes by herself to look at an 04 f150
>tell her not to buy it until my dad or I have looked it over
>see her that night
>ask what she thought of it
>"it has really bad lifter tick so I decided against it"
>tell her it could be an exhaust leak
>go with her a few days later to look again
>mfw she was right
She's the only grill I trust to drive my trucks. One time she pulled a 6000lb trailer with my old ass f250 and it didn't even phase her. Not all grills are car-tards, just most of them.
My wife, didn't know anything about cars when we first met. She was interested and attentive, and know she can pull am intake off. But she won't do it without new gaskets unless we have reusable metal ones. Definitely one of her better qualities. Maybe only anymore
Girls are only into the cosmetics of things, they want the flashiest newest car they can get their hands on, without knowing a single thing about it, or about how it works.
My female cousin can barely drive, and had a really shit driving instructor, so she has bad habits now, and gets really nervous when driving.
This girl is in her early 20s and went and bought a fucking F30 3 series as her first car.
I haven't seen it yet, but my family did, so I know it's an F30 since they pointed it out in the street.
She has a pretty good job and makes decent cash, especially for her age, but her bf doesn't do shit so she's paying this car off herself.
I'm gonna feel really bad when she has to take it to a dealer for every little thing...
I used to be edgy like this too, but honestly now I'd just play along and mess with her and joke about it.
"my favorite car is a bmw m3 turbo"
>"cool :) those r fast if modded correctly"
i saw this post on fucking facebook from a decent looking chick
i fucking hate this chick now.
they know how to plasti dip wheels but dont know how to replace a caliper let alone take apart a rotor assembly
I used to think that OP, then I met a this qt3.14 who wasn't an attention seeking #cargrill and make her gf.
Pic very related, her Skyline.
Let me give you an example
My ex makes bank, has a masters, etc.
She had the chance to buy a GT-R for $39,500. Tried to tell me it was a stick.
She ended up buying a Benz for $65k because it was "more comfy".
She's nearly wrecked it twice since I've known her, busted various things and spent a shit ton of money to keep it on the road despite its value completely nosediving.
She couldn't tell me how much horsepower it had, how heavy it was or if it had a turbo or not.......but she maintains that she knows a lot about cars because she worked on them with her dad when she was a kid.
Women know fuck-all about vehicles in my experience, even the ones who seem to own nice ones. My mother tried to tell me she knows cars, I asked her if her Camry was RWD or FWD. She didn't know what either meant.
Weak bait QQ more
Everyone knows most autistic skyline is the pigfat R33
Shit like this has been mostly my experience too. Tried to teach my first gf how to drive a stick and she couldn't even understand what the different gears we for.
>if 5th is the fastest then why can't I just start in it
>I can't tell the difference between first and second
>my foots on the floor but it's not accelerating
I kind of wish, but she did write me a good letter of recommendation for professional school.
Sorry m8. My data is being used for follow-up studies so I can't endanger my career over a stupid comment on a Chilean Skid-plate manufacturing message board.
My GF does her own fluid changes and other basic DIY on her Yaris, but her driving is terrible and she keeps forgetting to use jack stands when working under the car. She also has a disdain for most cars /o/ likes and leans towards newer cars which look like windowless jellybeans with emoticon grills.
This. They are out there but you won't see them as much since they're not attention whoring.
Girls either know nothing or are obsessed and better than you.
I've known some crazy good female drivers, but you would never know they liked cars if you saw them in your day to day.
Same thing also applies to some guys in a sense, take a look at smokey nagata.
Absolutly legendary japanese tuner, does 350km/h top speed attacks on a regular basis....looks like a mild mannered old man.
Any of you giving a /r9k/ answer have simply never met the girl who will take her car to the absolute limit of life and death, hold it there and give you the most amazing ride you ever have experienced.
I have and it's a terrifying and magical thing at the same time.
There are girls out there with amazing skill, but they are rare as unicorns.
Every single autist in this thread would lose a race against Denise McCluggage.
Educate yourself and either lurk moar or get the fuck off this board. You have one for being sperglords, it's called /r9k/.
Fuck off cunt, smokey is a legend.
Easy for a benchracer to talk shit to someone the entire automotive world respects when he would never be able to replicate any of his feats.
And the bloke's right, the proper term is attack.
Ever heard of the term "time attack" you fucking benchracer?
Nice bait, at the end of the day smokey's respected by nearly everyone and you're a random nobody.
I googled her, gotta give respect.
>In San Francisco in the early 1950s, while covering a yacht race, she met Briggs Cunningham, who built the first American cars to race at Le Mans. She bought her first sports car, an MG TC Midget, and began racing at small club events. In 1954 she moved to New York to work at the New York Herald Tribune as a sports journalist. The MG was replaced with a Jaguar XK140; she began to race professionally, and earned the respect of her male counterparts. Her trademark was a white helmet with pink dots. Her racing achievements included winning the grand touring category at Sebring in a Ferrari 250 GT in 1961, and a class win in the Monte Carlo Rally in a Ford Falcon in 1964. She also participated in the 1000-km race at the Nürburgring. She drove Porsches, Maseratis, and other racing cars of many marques, often with another woman driver, Pinkie Rollo. She ended her racing career in the late 1960s.
>Girl drives car and does it properly and well, winning multiple events
You autistic fucks are retarded.
You didn't even know what a fucking time attack is.
Because most women are raised to be women so they are not introduced to cars at an early age and do not normally form a passion for them where many men are and do, of course there is the rare occasion where dad is allowed to teach sally how to pull an engine out of a car before she is 4 but mums rarely let that happen.
"She should be playing with barbies"
Reminds me of one of the math professors I worked with, she drove a truck she did a diesel swap on and was rebuilding a CJ jeep from parts as a project. Was actually a pretty cool person.
The 2nd is like my gf
She loves my Bronco and says she's really into off roading and stuff
Then we drove my dad's tacoma and did a 180 in the winter on accident and she wouldn't talk to me the rest of the way home
