    My partners are giving me shit about the four door. So maybe the coupe instead. Can't handle the reduced trunk space of the cab.

    Who cares what your partners think? Get the car you like. Personally, I don't like a coup with backseats.

    Old cars are more beautiful, more involving to drive, are fun to drive, are fun to show at club events, and there is a special comradery that exist between owners of old cars.

    The best of both worlds is having a modern car you enjoy for some days, and a vintage car to enjoy for others.

    Above is my favorite view on a Sunday morning...

    Gated Ferrari...Noice.
    I could not believe when Ferrari got rid of gated shifter for the first time and replaced it with some reverse-gear clitoris.

    Interesting description of their F1 transmission with paddle shifters.

    The F1 one transmission shifts faster than any human can, but their is something satisfying about using the classic gated shifter and the iconic metallic "clack" you hear when the stick its the back of the slot gate as you change gears. Yes, it was a sad day for me when I heard Ferrari had stopped offering a manual transmission.
