So what does the the new Mazda6, BMW 1-Series, VW Jetta TDI Sportwagen and Infiniti G37 have in common? They all appear on the second annual Best Cars of 2008 list. The site's three editors made their choices in each of six categories: Best New Car, Best Makeover, Best Date Car, Best Family Car, Best Club Car and Best Car for Me.
Gaywheels founder Joe LaMuraglia tells us, "You can also argue that while the prevalence of families is on the rise, the majority of LGBT consumers are single or couples and don't have the same requirements as married couples with kids." LaMuraglia chose the 2009 Mazda6 as his Best New Car, arguing that the midsize is "bigger, badder and more beautiful" than the previous 6. His personal best car, however, is the TDI Sportwagen. Its combination of frugality and good looks earned the site's praise of "vehicular comfortable shoes."

Joe Tralongo, Gaywheels' Montana editor, chose the Nissan GT-R as his Best New Car and the Subaru WRX as his personal favorite. Josee Valcourt, the site's New York Editor, likes the Volkswagen CC overall but the seemingly contradictory 335i Convertible as his ride of choice.

What a coincidence. Gay car fans like some of the same cars that straight car fans do.
