Driving a Automatic Dosent Make You Not a Man

It bugs me when people are like you drive a automatic, your car isnt a sports car, or a muscle / pony car, your not a man. Like they just sound stupid! And every one of those guys say a manual is always faster, which is not true. If your automatic shift at redline its gonna kill a manual (with same specs) because a computer can shift so much faster then a human no matter how fast they can shift

Thank you

Colin Gordon

I'm still trying to figure that out myself. Who decided that in order to be a "mans" car it had to be a manual transmission?

I think having sex with lots of good looking women makes you a man.

At least they weren't picking on you for having a V6.

I was wanting a stick shift... however everything changed last weekend, I was thrown off my mountain bike and dislocated my right shoulder and tore some ligaments in my collar bone. Now, I wear a sling and my right arm is totally useless. Thank goodness I have an automatic!

Its people dude. They are always going to say something negative about something. Get used to it, and let it roll off your back.

Completely agree! Although it is always best to not let that kind of stuff get to you.
