How Sexy Is Your Car?

by Migdalia Rivera


Have you ever wondered how sexy is your car? The question may seem odd if you haven’t thought about it beforehand; however, as a single Latina in NYC, I do.  A car is a fashion statement, just like your hair, your clothes and your make-up. Albeit, a more expensive one, but a fashion statement nonetheless.

Humans judge others on appearance. Your car is an extension of your appearance. What you drive and how you drive speaks volumes. 

Which brings us back to the question:

How Sexy Is Your Car?


Sexiness is subjective. What’s sexy to me, may or may not be sexy to you. Knowing this, I’ve devised a list.  


A man/woman who can drive a powerful car exudes sex appeal. Its even been said that how a person drives a car will give you some indication as to how they will treat their mate. Do they take risks? Do they rev the engine? Can they handle curves without freaking out?



I like a hands on type of man. He must not be scared to get down and dirty. Yet, he has to be able to put on a suit and tie when needed.  A car must be the same. It must mesh practicality with style. If it can’t do its job, it doesn’t matter how stylish it looks, does it?   A two seater will not do me any good because of who I am. However, it may suit someone else.  I know my style. I know me. I won’t budge on certain issues and neither must my car. That being said, I think a car must be “cut” in just the right places. It doesn’t have  to have a six pack, but it must be able to bounce a few curbs off it.



A car’s color can scream sex appeal. You must be able to take it on a date and home to Mama.  Color speaks volumes! In fact, it can even give you some insight into the driver’s personality. [Pat Bertram gives you the color breakdown on Squidoo.] Ultimately, you must ask yourself, “Does the color scream “Look its me!” or “Keep looking”?”



This one rates high on my sexy checklist. I need to make sure a car is trustworthy. Can I rely on the car in good times and bad? Can it handle what life throws at it: potholes, snowstorms, and sandy patches? If I can’t answer with an affirmative, than it fails the trustworthiness test.



A clean car is a sexy car. A car can have all the above, but will fail the sexiness test if it doesn’t pass the Cleanliness test. I’m not just talking about having a clean exterior either. You want to know your rear is sitting where few have sat. You want to know what’s inside! Are their cans, candy wrappers or unmentionables tossed about? Do the seats have stains? Do I need to wear a nose filter to sit inside? If so, it fails the Cleanliness test and can’t be deemed sexy. A car can have personality but it must not have trash, extreme dust and/or unmentionables strewn about. PERIOD.

Alissa Apel: I have a Civic too! I say its SEXY! Why? Cause it has power, suits my style, its trustworthy, the color screams versatility and its clean- well as clean as you can get with two boys LOL so don’t discount the sex appeal because its a family car!

Alicia: Wepa! That’s right Girl, cause having a car seat doesn’t mean its not sexy. It just means it has style ;)

My car doesn’t have the slightest bit of sexy to it. None, not even a glimmer. But it’s so reliable that I can’t even be mad about it.

Now I gotta tell ya, I can equate my car to ladies who wear flannel pajamas next to their boo – Not Sexy At All!!! (lol) Because me and my husband are like the Odd Couple, our shared mini van is sooooo not sexy, because he never keeps it tidy. :0( He drives it more than I do. I was kind of thinking, maybe I should always wear flannels to teach him a lesson. :0).
