Because as soon as you get clear of town there are some AMAZING places to carve?

If you keep an eye on those cars, you’ll notice you’ll either keep up or pass them. People racing just to test their brakes are wasting fuel, braking material, and whatever’s left of their hair colour. lol Read more

That just makes it better. I had some Karen in a luxo-SUV having a conniption fit behind me in Rt 128 traffic last summer as I did my thing. She was so busy getting riled up she didn’t even notice that we were just passing and getting passed by the exact same bunch of cars that were stopping and going next to us for Read more

Agreed. I’ve done the 405 stop go in a stick. Did it suck? Yes. Was it more sucky with a stick? Only a little. Was it so sucky that I’d get rid of my stick? No. Read more

All of these are dead wrong - the dude’s completely upending his life and moving to a very different place. So he has no idea what his needs will be. He might find that he’ll take up surfing, or mountain biking, or motocross. He might decide that he wants to spend lots of time in the desert camping and gazing at the Read more

It wasn’t LA, but my daily commute, before work from home, was sitting for an hour in stop and go traffic. I did it in a 500 Abarth, and before that a C5 Z06 (3 days a week minimum except for the winter) with a big cam and heavy clutch. It never bothered me. Some people can deal with that kind of thing more than Read more

I lived in LA for 2 years with a manual. As long as it’s not a super heavy race clutch, you are fine. Gives you something to do while stuck in traffic, and is way more fun once you are out of it.

Having spent my fair share of time in LA, it’s wonderful if you can afford it to be wonderful. I’m assuming that you’re statistically improbable to be a millionaire, hence a good LA car in my opinion needs to fit the following criteria for you:
1) Comfortable in traffic
2) Well-working air-con (trust me, a vintage

Eh.  Lots of us don’t mind sticks in traffic.  I prefer their crawl speeds and one-foot driving over autos a lot of the time.

Imagine being such a “No fats, no femmes, MASC4MASC” weirdo that finding out that your man wants to paint your toenails causes this dramatic reaction. For me, the biggest problem with this relatively benign request would be trying not to laugh as my partner gets super horny over toenail painting. Just being rock hard Read more

The height of narcissism is being offended by people mispronouncing your last name, especially if its root is in a foreign tongue. The equivalent of assholes who pick apart an immigrant speech for not being perfect or making malapropisms. Also, a lot of names require your tongue to due things it has not done before in Read more

The mispronunciation of names seems like making a mountain out of a mole hill. It happens. I’m sure he tried his best, but it’s not like he’s going to automatically know how to pronounce every name. My last name is Fench Canadian. 9 out of 10 Americans get it wrong. I correct them and move on. I can’t expect them to Read more
