Love driving my ‘98 corolla 2L, wife’s electric Nissan Leaf (no gears AT All) and my 4speed Alison automatic Bus. Each has their own benifits and drawbacks I guess?

1950 Ford Prefect Manual for starters, current stable includes 1990 MX5 Manual, Suzuki Jimny Manual, 1992 MX5 Race Car Manual, Subaru Forester Auto, and VW Crafter Auto/shiftmatic.

While I apprecate the auto for stop/start city driving, I still prefer a manual.

Retirement vehicles 1984 Civilian twin shift 10 speed, 2006 Honda shadow aero [pre electronic controls] , 1961 Hillman Minx, 4 on the column, drum brakes no power anything [including brakes and steering, only modification is to change it to negative earth and swap the generator for an alternator] cruise at 60mph all day, As we both like driving, we have decided to take control back from the computers and enjoy the drive.
