so far it is running 50-50 for the hatch. but sample size is still small. No old ladies yet (I am defining an old lady as over sixty).

I've barely seen any hatches here in town and of the car's I have seen, 90% are being driven by men.

Old people love the 1st gens as I just went 700 miles from Iowa to Denver and passed a lot of those and a few 2nd gens but only met up with two MK3s and both were driven by 30 something couples. I was the only one bending the speed limit.

after 3 weeks it is still 50/50 for the HB. of course I can't see who is driving if a car has heavy window tinting. i suspect more men than women would drive a heavy tinted car but I don't count them. still no old ladies. I have see a few grannys in the sedan focus though.

The Focus is a girl's car?

On this other forum I'm on for car audio, everyone keeps telling me that my focus is a shit box and a girl's car, but I in no way see how the Mk3 Foci are girl cars.... why do people think beauties like this are for girls?

Beacuse it's not an early 90s Honda Civic SOHC hatchback with a Type-R badge.

that particular color focus with those wheels does look like it would favor a gal or an effeminate dude. you the latter ?

I will say that the new styling of the focus has definitely came forward in a good way. That everyone is looking back at Ford to buy or have a new MK3 focus.
