I've had girls ask if I expect them to get into my hoopty, to which I reply "yes, now get in".

My first GF dated my friend before me because he had a cool truck (F150 Lightning).

Cool cars attract certain women. I tend to be repulsed by the type of women that place a lot of emphasis on image rather than substance. For that reason my idea used to be to become a millionaire, but drive a crappy car on the first few dates, just to make sure the girl is into me and not my things. My other idea was to retire early at age 50 and marry a 25 year old.

I'm now 33, not a millionaire, and my wife is 29. I still consider myself fortunate.
