No way.... Modern commuter cars that are merely appliances to get from point A to B eat your soul


There are plenty of under powered cars that are still really fun to drive and plenty more that despite poor numbers will still draw attention and spark up a conversation in any parking lot.

Aka Corollas and such.

Every car has its use though, some people jist need a point A to B car. Or maybe they do have that hemi or S5 in their garage, but the A to B is the Corolla.

that's pretty much my plan. I have 10 year old accord right now that is great cause I have to drive a total of 60 miles each day for my commute. I'm planning to buy a fast car next year once I finish paying off my student loans, but I'm still gonna keep this car. I only need to fill up gas once every week even with my long @#$ drive and constant stop and go traffic

You get used to it and it eventually becomes second nature

I hear this all the time from auto apologists, as justification for driving an auto instead of a manual.  Most of the time its people who can't operate a stick.  Being able to truly operate a manual transmission well is becoming a lost art and unfortunately many car manufacturers are going the way of the "lazy" consumer.  I drive a manual as my dd and I really have no problems with everyday traffic including stop and go rush hour.  In stop and go I usually coast along in 1st or 2nd gear and leave adequate space in front of me to actually not have to ride my brakes like a majority of idiot drivers who don't seem to understand that in bumper to bumper nobody is getting anywhere fast.  I still believe that manual drivers are superior to auto drivers because we are more in tune with our machine and those around us.  There is no place for a cell phone or other driver seat distractions with a standard.

I can drive a stick, although I haven't pushed one in a long time.

I am an auto apologist because I am guilty of multi tasking while driving. In bad traffic one hand is on the wheel and the other is on my cell phone. Not a single damn given

just now seeing this thread.

I know a lot of people will be mad when Ninja cops his muscle car. Although if he does get the fire chicken I will scold him for not going with a Camaro.

Also when it comes to talk about the daily driver and having a fun car in the garage, thats's what I will do. Planing on keeping my '96 Corolla SS as my daily driver and then copping a motorcycle for most day's commutes. Then I will cop my IROC and swap the engine pimp.gif

Nobody cares about that badge. Interior is borderline Ghetto.
