A masculine car

Overheard a guy saying that even though his vehicle cost him "probably $60 more per week in gas" he would never own a Prius because it wasn't "manly." He actually said it would threaten his masculinity. But wouldn't someone truly masculine not be threatened? And if we're going to be cis-heteronormative about things, aren't making decisions (like which car to buy) based on logic rather than emotion considered a more masculine approach? Even if you're annoying and not going to save the environment, be consistent please! Then again, if everyone subconsciously makes decisions emotionally and later justifies them with logic, maybe he's just more enlightened than I am and the joke's on me.
