Which car will help my advisor pick up chicks?

From Anonymous:

My graduate advisor had recently wrecked his car. He had narrowed the choice of replacement down to two options. He came into the lab and polled all the students to get our opinions on which of the two would best enable him to attract women. I was the only woman in the room, and he told me my opinion counted double because I was female. I didn’t answer. At the time I didn’t know what to say. Today I would have objected to both the original question (not appropriate for a prof to ask his students) and for singling me out.
