A study commissioned by AutoTrader.ca, released today, reveals that a little more than a third of Canadians surveyed find that driving a “sexy” car makes them feel sexier. The survey doesn’t actually specify what constitutes a sexy car, although its ability to transform into a Romanian swimsuit model is likely one of the most desirable features.
Or not. While 36 per cent of respondents were in favour of some hot, steamy, automobile action, that number actually skewed higher amongst women, at 40 per cent. (Insert drive-shaft joke here.) Furthermore, 50 per cent of respondents under 35 responded in the affirmative. Which is funny, cuz 50 per cent of people under 35 I know drive either a Honda Civic, some dorky Kia or Ford Focus—or ride a bicycle. Then again, I suppose sexiness is in the eye of beholder, right?
That said, another section of the survey sheds some light on our fellow countrymen’s car-sex fantasies. When asked to match a Canadian celebrity with their vehicular embodiment, respondents pegged Ryan Gosling as a Ford Mustang, Alanis Morissette as a Toyota Prius (I wouldn’t wanna ride her either!), Pamela Anderson as a Porsche 911 (I’m thinking more of a Hummer—a pair of Hummers, to be precise) and Wayne Gretzky, the greatest Canadian of all-time, as a butt-ugly Subaru Forester.
Sad to say, it looks like chicks don’t dig the broomball helmet like they did back in the 80’s…
(I don’t know about you, but that looks like a bitchin’ ride to me. Then again, I take the TTC…)
