Atuomatic or standard shift?

I will not own a Auto. My left foot gets bored.

Never do two things illegal at the same time

Re: Atuomatic or standard shift?

After driving for several years in crowded city bumper to bumper traffic...I'll never own another stick!

Chocolate and Vanilla! LOL!

Re: Atuomatic or standard shift?

That is the downside of a manual. Not a lot of city traffic here.

Re: Atuomatic or standard shift?

Tired of shifting and feeling like I'm on a roller coaster. I have one car standard and the other automatic. The motorcycle doesnt count.

Re: Atuomatic or standard shift?

Give me a stick anytime and all the time.....

1992 Mustang 5.0-cannot imagine a Fox Body without a stick
2003 BMW M5-Somewhat affordable if you want it bad enough
2008 Pontiac G8 GXP-Will go down as one of the great Pontiacs

How do I put a 6 speed in my hearse(when I get it):smoke2:

Manual..........

1. A clutch is cheaper than a whole tranny
2. Can't "dump the clutch" in an auto
3. YOU are in control, not a valve or a computer
4. More power to the drivelines

Re: Atuomatic or standard shift?

I like the manual. Don't have to sit in to much traffic anymore so that doesn't bother me anymore.
