All right, enuff is enuff - when I bought my WRX I didn't realize that it was putting me in an exclusive boys club. Yes I'm female, yes I drive stick and yes I OWN my WRX...it is NOT my husbands! Why do you guys feel the need to constantly male bond...I drive my car everyday and yet not once have I had other cars honk and ask me about her, not once have I had them give me the thumbs up yet my hubby takes the wheel w/me as passenger and all of a sudden I'm in another world. I get out - I look at the car - its the same f--ing car I drove 10 minutes ago; flooring her just the same. Guys, get with it - not all girls like to keep their hands clean...not all read girly magazines and go to "tearjerker" movies...some of us appreciated Gone In 60 Seconds for its fine vehicles...some of us enjoyed Fast & Furious for the adrenaline rush and yes some of us would like to be recognized for our good taste in fine vehicles and talk "car talk". Eh, I can stare and oooh and aaah just as good as any guy. God help me next year when I plan to get my bike...
