Manual Gearbox - Well said!`

I've always been a fan of Henry's films. He is an excellent driver and a far better Automotive Journalist. I very much applaud his latest offering. Enjoy...

Once you're done...read the comments - almost as good as the narrative.

Nice article. Itís right on point on what I try to explain on why I like manual cars. Iím not a racer so my purpose of driving is the experience rather than tenths of seconds. I love it when I get a shift just right and curse myself on a sloppy downshift. I still donít have heel and toe down pat after all these years of driving a stick but after watching the video Iím going to spend some time practicing.

I agree a manual can be miserable in certain circumstances but Iím fortunate enough to have other cars for those times. Iíve even been tempted to get a Miata (shock) because Iíve heard they are great drivers cars.

I know the new Corvette doesnít have a manual and supposedly thereís no plan or ability to go with a stick on the new platform and I understand from a business perspective it probably makes sense to not have a manual but I just think itís a mistake not not offer it on an iconic sports car.
