    Clutch or automatic

    This came up on the baseball side, but I'm just curious to see how many folks still drive a vehicle with a clutch.

    I don't have a car, but I do prefer a clutch. Even though for the first six months I drove one, I had a big sign in the back window screaming "NEW STICK SHIFT DRIVER - PLEASE KEEP DISTANCE". Because, you know, a good way to improve your driving is to plaster a huge sign on the back window. (But it worked.)

    Anyway, saves gas money.

    Automatic! It's too hard changing the XM channel, reaching into the backseat to smack the kid, talk on my cell phone, eat a Six Dollar Burger, honk my horn at the losers that can't drive, and still worry about operating the clutch.

    Actually the new automatics can save you more money on gas than a standard.

    Really? Then I want an electric car. Nothing to do with money, but unspeakably rad.

    Oh, I forgot one other thing. But this is a family board.

    I drove a standard for seven years and I was never happier to have a car break down beyond repair. I have had an automatic for the past seven years and I do not miss the standard at all.

    Automatic - I fully concur with RBA that I have enough on my mind between changing songs on my iPod and ordering take-out on my cell
