Speaking from a males perspective, guys love cars. I know I do, spending a large chunk of my weekly salary on my car, a Nissan Silvia. But even if the love of a car isn't as fanatical as my own, there is still a large difference in attitude between a male going to a car yard or private seller to purchase a vehicle, and a female.
