Is the ball off centre or are the numbers intentionally canted towards the driver?
Its not that its a bad example. People definitely express that opinion that live and commute in LA. I have met people who I tell that I own two manual cars as my only vehicles and they gasp with horror at the thought of it. Granted I dont actually commute through LA traffic so maybe I dont really know the pain. My…
Can confirm, lived in San Francisco with 2 manual cars. It’s a pain to have to crawl up to stop signs in bumper to bumper traffic on a crazy inclined hill. Especially when other idiots just ride your ass and don’t give you any space to roll backwards without crashing in to them.
Get a Caterham.
Are you over 60? Has your home business finally started paying out some cash? Do you feel like you’re getting old and thus need a bit of a spark in your life? Maybe you want to attract some younger women? Well, buy some overpriced branded leather and leave the helmet at home because welcome to the club.
Of note, I find it funny how people think manuals in LA traffic would be terrible or something. Just because there is traffic doesnt automatically (no pun intended) make manuals a pain.

I want to be a manual hipster.
The other two were good because they were satire.
I think you did a pretty good job, especially because a lot of people seem pretty angry about this.
Let me guess — he was never arrested?
Doubt that because it wouldn't have lasted them that long
Oof some of those points hit too close to home, well done sir.
I’m sorry you’re salty the Stinger is auto only
I’m in my 40's, live and commute in L.A., can afford a new car, and I hate automatic transmissions. So, there. Manuals are better.
While I get the point and it’s all in fun. Another reason I prefer manuals is reliability
