Gaywheels' Lifestage Car Choices

Automakers spend tens of millions of dollars on consumer research, determining which of their vehicles best fits each demographic at what stage (i.e. age) of a consumer's life. Gaywheels seems to feel carmakers' marketeers are missing the GLBT boat. So they've put together a list of vehicles that "suit the four primary phases of gay life." Stage one: "Young, Single and on the Prowl." Car-up with the Volvo C30, Jeep Wrangler or Infiniti G37 Coupe. Stage Two: "Coupling Period." Move on to the Cadillac CTS, Lincoln MKX or VW Passat. Stage Three: "Partnered for Life." The new couple need a Mercedes GL-class, Buick Enclave or (pre-face lift?) Subaru Tribeca. Stage Four: gay geezerhood "The Golden Years." Snag an Audi S5/A5, Jaguar XK convertible or Lexus LS 600h L. So where do the VW Beetle convertible, MX5, Porsche Boxster, PT Cruiser, MINI and VW Eos fit into any of this? Your guess is as good as mine.

    Back in stage 1, I had a passion for getting a stage 2 Passat wagon...and now that i'm in stage 3, I have a burning desire for the Stage 4 S5. I'm so ahead of the curve.

    The funny part is that I drive a white VW Cabrio which is according to the conservative people nearest me - very! very! gay… Those folks are misinformed. Driving a Cabrio doesn't suggest that you're gay. It merely suggests that you're daddy's little girl.

    Personally, I find myself attracted to the old design B9 Tribeca. My wife likes the Weinermobile.

    Personally, I find myself attracted to the old design B9 Tribeca. Is it true that you need a speculum to do diagnostics on them?
