    Ahh the good old days of the 1950`s, all this post is missing is some good old fashioned southern racism and a Disney cartoon, actually most of those go hand in hand with the racism you could kill two birds with one stone.

    At first thought the post was about spousal abuse with the broken car representing her face.

    Only read the caption to figure out the connection

    Well... women generally are worse drivers. That`s only my opinion, but somewhere it may have been statistically proven... I don`t know.

    I wish my dad hadn`t sold the VW bug he had promised to give me. Oh well, though that is why I like my Chevy. Cheap parts, easy to fix.

    I`d like to say that there wasn`t some truth to this, but my sisters, who own the same car, have had 4 accidents in it since they got it last year. My truck, which I have had for 5, has seen 2.

    Well, in the UK women get cheaper insurance than men. There`s probably a reason for that.

    It`s possible women have more minor scrapes, men really drat up more.

    "Well... women generally are worse drivers. "

    Actually, the statistics demonstrate the reverse. At least in the US, males are responsible for greater dollar damage due to car crashes than are females.

    I remember,as a kid, seeing print ads for a shirt company-can`t remember which one-where they speak of a husband spanking a disobedient wife.Advertisers(Predominately men) have always had a skewed perspective.

    AntEconomist: Actually, the statistics demonstrate the reverse. At least in the US, males are responsible for greater dollar damage due to car crashes than are females.

    That`s because, as statistics demonstrate, there are more male drivers than female drivers. At least in the US.

    BenTheBug: No, the figures are adjusted for differences in population sizes. IOW, the probability of an expensive accident given that the driver is female is less than the probability given that the driver is male.

    I find it slightly amusing in a "laugh or I`ll hate the world" sort of way that i-am-bored will frequently be the one spouting out the sexist bullpoo about women drivers, or sandwiches or whatever other "witty" joke is in fashion at the time just as often, if not moreso, than they call others out on it.

    Women tend to have more parking accidents, men tend to have more accidents that start with "Hold my beer, watch this!"

    Why don`t they make adverts like this anymore?

    Also, male drivers have accidents more than female drivers. Just look at the cost of car insurance for a teenage male compared to teenage female.

    "Also, male drivers have accidents more than female drivers."

    Wrong. The reason for the insurance pricing difference is because accidents involving males cost far more (often one`s life) than those women get involved in. Men drive far faster and more recklessly than women. Women DO get into more accidents, even if it`s just silly stuff like backing into a parked car at 5mph.

    Ironically, many of Volkswagen`s advertising campaigns were years ahead of their times; many were very funny and others just brilliant. What other auto maker had ever shown one of their cars with a crumpled fender? Alas, they were not so forward-looking when it came to gender stereotypes, but you have to admit this ad was in keeping with the times.

    $25 for a fender replacement? Either labor was way more than that, or drating up your car in the 60`s wasn`t even a problem.

    yeah, pretty common thinking in the U.S. up until about the 70`s I think. It wasn`t that long ago. Be proud of the huge strides made in equal rights U.S. women, for most were made in the past Century.
