Sports Automatic...

november 15, 2004

What is it with people who buy high-end sports cars (Acura NSXs, Chevy Corvettes, Porsche 911s) with automatic transmission? Everyday, when I walk from the Light Rail Station to work, I see a guy in his red Acura NSX buzz by me and turn into Altera driving his fancy sports car with an automatic transmission. I saw a Porsche 911 in Boston that was brand new, yes, with automatic transmission. There are two Corvettes in the parking lot at work that are automatics. Come on people, if you get a fancy sports car and can't drive manual, then just go spend your money on some fancy sedan instead. That's just sad.
