Bond . . . Lizett Bond.

Reading this, two thoughts strike me:

1. Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus; and
2. I bought my wife a lover!

This is not a 17 spider its 16. They're not making any spiders for 2017 . It also has a 6 Speed Gearbox, not a 5.

Wow that was a fun read. I like how she didn't really complain about the lack of power steering unlike too many neut men do.

Seems she's a bit of a gearhead.... and a romantic. Sounds like a keeper to me.

Whoa. Would it be sexist if I admitted "mind blown"?

On a second read-through, I see that there were clues in the way she anthropomorphised the car as a male. I think I just missed that when I read it last night because the 4C has always, unquestionably been "female" in my mind. That and the fact I was on my second scotch before bed...

She is a romantic and she wants to be intimate with her car, I think that's just fine.

A girl gearhead had recently told me that she considers all cars male and trucks female. I thought that was odd.

Girls think differently than boys or so I am told.

My 4C is definitely a female. A tough mean one like Scarlett Johansson

All Italian cars are female for sure, in Italian "car" is a female noun
