well personally I would never call the CLK a girl's car, the SLK though I would, always seemed a bit smallish

Now you would not call a Ford Focus a girl car based on the number of cylinders it has would you? It was a pretty silly comment.
The Focus is an econobox, always was and always will be (in fact, in Europe Ford even offers it with a 1.0L three-cylinder Ecoboost engine). Are you saying the CLK is an econobox and thus subject to the same standard?

You are correct there not on the same level and never will be. Your right its a encobox. So why call a members car who has more engine then yours a chick car based his car not having enough clyinders?

Because it doesn't. A six-banger convertible is a girl's car, an eight-banger (like, for example the CLK63 from your beloved AMG) is more masculine.

This has nothing whatsoever to do with what I do or don't drive.

What next? The size of your anatomy determins how masculine one is? I would rather own a CLK63 over a CLK350 but the car has nothing to do with how masculine the owner is and it does not mean one is more of a man car then another. That would like me saying trade in your SE Focus for the SVT Focus... Its more masculine. I did not know that a CLK convertable was for girls only. I should check the manual on that one.

My previous car was a C6 Corvette. I was told on many occasions that it was a "chicks" car because it had an automatic transmission! At the end of the day does it really matter as long as you are happy? I think not.
