all you people who have something negative to say about the manual gearbox is the fact that they never mastered it...

I am another fan of manual transmissions, which I think add fun and require some level of skill to drive, for the following reasons:


1.  In small cars with small engines, a manual helps get the most out of a little power.  The small cars I have had with automatics were real dogs.


2.  In a bigger car with plenty of power, a manual is simply more fun to drive; downshifting to pass and go around corners, etc.  Nothing like the sound of a big V8 with a manual.


3.  A manual transmission is one of the best theft-deterrent devices available.  Some moron may try to steal your car, but won't get half a block away before he gives up.  He may trash the clutch or the transmission, but the car will still be nearby.

Where the hell is the Corvette on the list?  I am one who still loves a clutch.

Ever notice that the ones complaining about manual transmissions are the same ones that text while driving.

How in the hell could you forget Corvettes, you idiots!

All you people who haven't mastered a standard tranny, and want to call those of us who like that option of having a standard need to give us a call when that auto dies, no warning, completely with no way of motivating, and tell us how you like spending $3000 to get it fixed!

Well duh, there are real drivers/racers that require and want manual transmission -__- LONG LIVE LE STICK SHIFT!

to lykearock - lol, I know what you mean, I remember in high school I had a friend that would park at the top of the school parking lot because his starter went out. He would put it in second gear, we would give him a nudge to get him rolling and half way down the lot he'd dump the clutch and fire it up. We did that for about a month until he saved up enough money to get a new starter.

 I've always liked stick shifts. (I do agree about having an auto trans for your daily commuter if you have to drive through hours of stop and go traffic) I don't know, to me, if somebody says that they don't like stick shifts, they either don't like driving period, or they don't know how to drive a manual. I wonder, to the people who say get with the times, Do you want all of the gages to go away also? I like seeing my oil pressure, batt., gas and temp gages, next to (or around) my tach and the speedometer.

Bout time a manual enthusiast came out with this. I'm so freaking tired of these weiners making their cars automatic cause some people can't drive stick. Glad to know I'm not alone in this lazy world.
