7 Cars That Can’t Date My Daughter

I pity the fool that’s gonna try to date My Daughter.  Not because I’m a prude, over protective, will tend to stalk him or put a chip in his ear or anything (that’s my husband’s job), but because as a Motorhead Mama I’ve got some wacky car criteria.  First, that dumb ass better be a killer driver.  No stick?
