I had a horrible dream

Somebody stole my car and replaced it with a guards red 944 with an automatic transmission. The horror!

There's nothing wrong with autos - In our gridlocked little country an auto is much less work to drive. There's always the kickdown when you need a bit of ooomph. You make up the speed by reading the road ahead properly and driving effectively.

It is just a personal prefrence of mine. I have a truck that is automatic would rather have it manual. (it is true, manual can be a pain in heavy traffic)

I think this will become a recurring dream - He'll be back.

Ugh that joke was wank!

Coleman would be better than Gray-Out Dooffus!

At least BoostYourTaxesMonte didn't get it.

I love my auto also.. This way, I have my hands free. If I have to shake my fist violently at someone, I can. If my lady friend is in the car, then I can do my thang. lol

But soon, I would love to purchase a 951.

Later all.
Drive safe now; with your auto or manual.
Bye.

At least with an auto you don't have to worry about the clutch going, but an auto is crap for towing caravans unless you have a big engine (now who tows anything with a 944?)

when I was married, I always made sure that all performance (read: fun to drive) cars we bought had a crashbox in them. that way I'd never have to worry about the wife wanting to drive 'em

OK. Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected state governor - as was Jesse "The Body" Ventura. Does anyone else think its weird that two of our fifty states are headed by men that appeared in the movie PREDATOR?

It's just coincidence now, but if Carl Weathers gets elected governor of Nevada, I'll be worried.

I had a bad dream too. I dreamt that I was stuck in a country where everything was arse about face because it was run by a poncified politically correct twat who cared more about style over function. Then I woke up and realized it was true ... weeping dicks!
