FWIW The title of the thread may be misleading respondants.

The survey was asking what attractive people are found to be driving. Thats a little different than what you are attracted to in a mate based on vehicle.

Ultimately, I think the type of vehicle one drives usually ranks low on the scale of things taken into consideration with attractiveness.

Well, UPS truck rated higher than mail truck... Seems like women UPS drivers don't make the cut though.

You know what's funny though, I think there are some women who have a bit of a UPS driver fetish. I've seen it before (at the office I used to work at). And there is even the cliche in movies (Legally Blonde comes to mind). Maybe it's because the shorts they wear show off muscles or something.

Good point... I was adding to the orginal article headline of "Study: Women most attracted to guys in trucks" to add what men in the survey found attractive. Wonder if I can edit it. I'll give it a try.

The UPS drivers in Orange County were all hot! I think it was a job requirement.

My husband has owned a sports car (when we first met), truck (still have it) and just recently bought a sedan.

I didn't care for the sports car at all. It just didn't "fit" him. The truck...yeah, that was drool worthy. It matched him well. He'd come home from work and pull into the driveway and he just looked yummy in it.

When he pulls in driving the sedan all I can muster up is "KIDS.....daddy's home!" LOL

Stereotypes are generally based on some germ of truth. I don’t just mean masculine/feminine roles. From the female side, what evidently matters most is that the man attends to detail and evinces responsibility. A flashy sports-car with junk mail and lunch-scraps on the floor, with stuck high-idle and an exhaust leak, would be less appealing than a well-kempt, smoothly-running Camry. From the male side, what seems to matter is evidence that the woman isn’t stodgy or aloof, and some aspect of that would be reflected in her choice of vehicle.

The stereotypes about cars closely mirror those about dress. We’ve seen evidence that women prefer for a man to wear properly-fitting, clean jeans and casual shirt, than a business suit that’s ill-fitting and crumpled, with soiled dress shoes and mismatched socks. It’s not that jeans are better than a suit, but that well-kempt jeans are better than a disheveled suit.

What seems to be of zero positive impression from women, is if man keeps a sports-car collection locked in his garage, while driving a beater. To the extent that cars matter at all, he’ll be judged as being stingy and misallocating priorities for driving the beater. What he has in storage is irrelevant. The same applies to material wherewithal in general. No dates fail or succeed by the size of a man’s 401K.

I think the article is a bit weak. As a automotive enthusiast the only cars I would do a double take on a woman driving would be Corvette or Porsche 911. Most women driving one of those two vehicles are more of an enthusiast than most of the other makes.
