Hmmm, now what do you guys have to say? We, males driving New Beetles, get a lot of “jokes” in the tuning world that our car is a chick car. It might be. Now lets look into this list. The stright-male driving the rad Jetta, Rabbit, Eos is now driving a “gay” car?
*This comment goes out to all the peeps who give male, New Beetle drivers sh*t about owning a “chick” car. It has nothing to do with a/your sexual preference.
