    The funny thing is my wife goes " What is that car a Morgan ? " and I said "No that's a Caterham but there is a Morgan driving it " -delise

    Sorry Volvo is dead to me, due to the following conversation I had with a fleet manager at Volvo Santa Ana a week ago:


    Mgr: "So, your lease is up soon. How about a new car?"

    Me: "Sure. How much is the new V70 with a tow hitch, manual transmission and a bumper sticker saying 'I rather have a Caterham than you up my ass.' ? "

    Mgr: "Errrrm. Manual transmission you say. How about a computerized tiptronic wannabe transmission with no reality connection whatsoever?"

    Me: "How about no. How much for a V50 with a hitch and manual tranny. You sold that configuration three years ago."

    Mgr: "Errrm. Not anymore."

    Me: "Do you sell *any* cars with a manual transmission."

    Mgr: "Errrm..."

    Me: "Do you have the number to Audi?"

    The world is surely going down, with Sweden in the lead.

      Yeah, unfortunately the manual transmission is going to be a thing of the past in a few years. Cheaper to make a "one size fits all" transmission with paddle shifters and the video game generation thinks that it is cool :rolleyes:
