TrueCar.com Identifies 10 Most Popular Cars for Dads

GasBuddy Blog -- Dads and cars go together like steak and potatoes. So it's very timely that TrueCar.com should identify the 10 most popular cars for dads.

That's a list of the ten most popular cars, period. It makes sense though, because while men in general might prefer Corvettes and Porches and what not, dads have to fit one or more car seats in there and all the baggage kids come with.

A dad may prefer a muscle car or truck but will settle on a van if they have a lot of kids.

four door pick ups allow you to carry as many people as regular cars along with all the junk they can carry
