    In your opinion

    What constitutes calling a car " A Hairdressers Car"

    For me I tend to think

    Usually 2 seater sports with hairdryer for engine.
    or just looks Pretty
    or the new Beetle. ( comes with vase on the dash )

    remember thats only my opinion

    Which cars would you put in that catogory

    In my opinion the Pug 206 cc is a real "hairdressers car". It may be a nicely styled car with a 2.0 lump in it, but could you really see a bloke looking better in one than a sexy blonde with her fit brunette friend in the passenger seat!! no me neither. That's what I think is a "hairdressers car" a car that looks nice but you could only ever see a bird driving it.

    Also consider;
    Ford Puma
    Vaxhaul Tigra
    BMW Z3

    A car that looks like it should be sporty but actually has a wimpy engine.

    Most male hairdressers are gay so not much difference between them and a bird. That said, most either can't drive or choose to drive the more girly type cars /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/kiss.gif

    I have an idea. Let's have a competition to see how many sweeping generalisations it's possible to fit into one sentence. Winner gets to cut Jonny S3's hair.

    If upsetting people is the order of the day, then I'm going for the max by nominating the Audi TT as the ultimate hairdresser's car. It might have been a style icon when it was a concept car, but truth to tell, it's just a Skoda Octavia 1.8T in lingerie.

    That's an interesting view on what happened. I would, of course, disagree.

    It's not the car that makes the car it's the hairdresser that drives it.....

    An MX5 for instance, although not my cup of tea, is a lot of fun to drive and more of a drivers car probably than my girly A3 /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Not truely a hairdressers car agreed, but what about the 'Smart' car?

    I pass a chap in the mornings who drives one who's dressed up to the nines, with a bow tie, the whole deal and I just can't help but think - Why? If I was living in a city then maybe, just maybe - otherwise forget it.

    I agree that are maybe funky but would you drive one everyday?

    First of all i hope this only applies to LADIES 'HAIRDRESSERS' rather than someone like myself, who is a 100+% HETREOSEXUAL Gents BARBER, who happens to be currently driving a S4 Avant(2003 model), fair enough my previous car was a TT 225 Roadster which i bought new back in Aug '01, but i still disagree that's a 'Hairdressers' car!!!!!
    Secondly i wear a suit to work everyday (maybe not all the time with a tie), most of the time if not all the time ,it's compliments all round regarding my smart appearance, but i didn't realise there was a dress code in my job!!!!!

    Have to agree with Gambba, the SMART is totally practical as a town car, which disqualifies it from this category. I think to be a bonafide HD car it has to be a soft top, don't know why, maybe it's the fact you need to go to the hairdressers after driving one.
