    THAT’S FINE. I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY BEING COURTEOUS IS SO OFFENSIVE TO YOU. I DO READ YOUR POSTS BECAUSE I VALUE THE OPINIONS POSTED HERE AND YOU OFTEN HAVE GOOD AND INSIGHTFUL COMMENTS.

    IN MY EFFORTS TO BE A BETTER PERSON I TRY TO HELP PEOPLE WITHOUT BEING ASKED. OFTEN TIMES WHEN PEOPLE ARE IN NEED THEY ARE TOO PROUD TO ASK. BUT EVERYONE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP FROM TIME TO TIME.

    I WENT AHEAD AND PUT THIS IN ALL CAPS AS A COURTESY TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU TO READ. ALSO PATCHED UP SOME SPELLING ERRORS IN THE ABOVE QUOTE, BUT YOUR PUNCTUATION IS LOOKING MUCH BETTER. VERY NICE.

    ^^ True dat. The reasons I wanted a stick car were that they're more fun to drive and I don't have to spend time in traffic. For most people, they are impractical.

    If I had more than a 20 minute commute in traffic, there's no way I'd want a manual. When the wifey-mate and I go gallivanting to Austin or San Antonio, we usually take the MX-5. Dislike driving it in traffic. It's a throwback - autos shift better and faster - dual clutch autos - pfft. Manual guys are left in the dust.

    Meh - get off my lawn - I like 1911's too.

    I used to drive my Miata 66 miles a day round trip to get to work and back, and 90% of that commute was in heavy traffic.

    Never had a complaint. I’d rather drive a stick in traffic than an auto, it’s keeps you more involved and therefore it’s less mind numbing than going through heavy stop and go traffic in an automatic in my opinion lol
