Im in my late 30's. Im looking to buy a car or truck thats classy and rugged.
Price range between $2,000-$4,000.

I had a toyota camry. Not rugged enough. I had a honda civic. But it was stolen. Good car though. I had a lincoln. Nice car, but too big. I also had a camaro. Piece of cr*ap.
Right now I drive an ex-cop car and i bought it cause it is reliable and rugged---but not classy. I date a lot and many of my dates dont like it. Girls dont think its classy car. It does hurt my image a little cause its a ex cop car and I work in the white collar profession.
I think maybe girls think im weird for driving it or something.

These are the list of cars I am interested in:
Lexus( Do metrosexuals drive these cars?)
bmw (parts are soo expensive on bmw's)
Ford f-150 (rugged)
ford mustang
Jeep grand cherokee
Pontiac Grand Am

I want to make a positive impression on a woman and my place of business without spending alot of money on car. Women do pay alot of attention to detail. Plus, dont tell me its confidence. I already know that and that I shouldnt be concerned about what others care what i drive.

Ladies what kind of car do u think is sexy for a man?

You are not being realistic - you won't find a "classy and rugged" car that makes a "positive impression on a woman and my place of business" for less than $4000.

You need to either increase your budget considerably if you want to impress anyone.

The only one of those vehicles listed that you might get in decent shape for your price is the Grand Am, but that is basic transportation - nothing classy about it, it's just a car. Any sub 4K BMW or Lexus will either have LOTS of miles and/or need a lot of work.

Dude, search Craigslist and look for a Pontiac Fiero. If you're willing to stretch the price a couple, you might have your winner. Of course, chances are,

A. There will be none listed

B. They will be WAY above your price limits.

With some luck, you may be able to score a Volvo 850 for that price. Very classy. I used to have one, it was great. Same with a Saab 900. The kind of woman I like goes for men with Swedish cars.

If you can, something like a 1969 dodge dart or 1968 mustang.

Get a jeep, preferablyly a wrangler. All the girls like it.

Mazda B series 2600 single cab. This is a cool truck. But slow.


Get a Lexus. Reliable and smooth and luxurious.

At that price, you could probably get a late '90's early '00's Ford F-150. I have a '99 that I've had for a long time. Granted it cost more back then, but now I think you could get a similar model for around 4 grand. My truck is black with tinted windows. I didn't even do anything else to it except put better tires on it and a dual exhaust system. (not true dual, but dual pipes out the back with a low heavy sounding exhaust)

To me, while a vehicle may not 'impress' others, it does make 'some' kind of impression, and most women, even city women, like guys with trucks. It's a manly ride. lol
