I care man, im with ya. I care. Its okay, I care. Never forget were in this together.I don't drive manuals because it's fun or nostalgic. I drive them because I want control of the vehicle. I want control over lockup all the time. Most people don't seem to care, but some of us do.
But seriously manual transmission is linked to the way our brains prefer to operate. In control. Its acquiescence that leads to autos and all the evils of man.
