This came up a lot during the “toyota throttle stuck” cases, and i was always shocked hearing people call the police and tell them they are flying down the highway at 130. (The whole family died). Maybe on certain cars you cant get it into neutral so easily, especially in a moment of panic. Fuel cutoffs in the…
Aaaah, got it. The opposite of what I thought I saw. Makes sense. A couple taller peeps also mentioned they had no major problems driving English roadsters. Thanks!
He only stated facts. The market IS getting beat up. Car sales ARE down. Your president has spoken at length (3 or 4 sentences, for him) about how awesome trade wars are, and how he intends to start some. Interest rates ARE coming up.

That looks like an awesome event. Great shots too!

My favorite MR2 body style...

At least with the manual, I have something to do outside of just creeping on the brake. I’ve driven plenty of cars that are still great with automatics, but I do think the…
