Secretary car

My buddies and I were discussing what vehicle is the consummate car owned and operated by a secretary. We threw out there suggestions of Honda CRVs, Mazda Miatas, and Toyota Corollas, but we ultimately came up with a 2005 V6 Ford Mustang.
We figure it would be a convertible in a warm climate town.

I have had the pleasure of knowing several "Admins" (let us please dump the term 'Secretary ') in my long career.

Depending upon personality, I've seen:
  • Brown Toyota Corolla (yuck)
  • '73 VW bus, Porsche engine
  • '68 Jeepster
  • Jacked-up Dodge pickup
  • Tan Avalon (yawn...)
  • '67 Jaguar
  • '93 Maxima SE (ZOOMY!!!!)
  • "champagne" Prius (meh-mobile)
  • '71 Mustang

So, underneath that smooth veneer lurks either a spitfire or a Grandma.

Off topic indeed and a very odd thread. I’ll move along now.

The conversation started with talking about how Buicks are only good for transporting your grandparents; complete with super-soft suspension and over-sized clock face display, they cater to the octogenarian set.
Just then, a Honda Civic with boy racer tuning drove by, and the conversation spiraled out of control from there.

Here we go...

There is still a relevant difference in a secretary and an admin assistance. I’ve had both. The duties of a modern secretary include the handling of confidential information, the literal meaning of their title still holds true. The admin assistant is more general and less individualize or personal in addressing and support general business duties.

Secretary is NOT a bad or derogatory term. Seems only the case where the importance of the role is not appreciated or understood. I’d welcome a secretary to work with over a pool of admins assistance. Personal, confidential, and individual help with my work! I need that!

Could be either...or both. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Depends on who she/he works for. If she/he works for Ebenezer Scrooge; nothing at all; for Tony Soprano, she got to drive whatever she wanted to, cause IIRC, old Tony drove..............

Cheers

They knew that in 66
Guess you found nothing new

https://www.torquenews.com/106/how-c...s-ford-mustang



Shortly after the 1964 Ford Mustang was introduced, Ford boss Lee Iacocca contacted successful racer and race car builder Carroll Shelby and told him that the Motor Company wanted to make the Mustang a race car. Carroll Shelby quickly replied that it couldn’t be a race car because it was “a secretary’s car” – and that he didn’t think that it could be turned into the premise of a race car.




ps, I love my 66 Mustang

I believe the secretaries of state, defense, interior, housing, homeland security, energy, education, etc. all get driven around in large American cars, most typically made by general motors.

Hi

Back when I first started "real" work (like in the 70's) the term "secretary" was already frowned upon. That was doubly true in our office. The 105 lb admin was easily the best shot of the bunch of us. That was with a 44 mag and standard (not target) loads .... yikes ....

Being a former "secretary" and now an admin asst (whatever the title is nowadays), I currently drive a 4X4 Chevy that will pull my Airstream and haul anything I want. I find that while a Mustang looks nice, it doesn't do what I need it to do.

What can I say, I'm just a truck girl!

Secretary’s car?

I find it amusing that the Mazda Miata is considered, in England, to be a hairdresser’s car.
