I care in the framework of a human being, several actually, died a painful death. Thats sad. I hate to think if they were scared. And how awful for his wife, loved ones etc.... im notmoved beyond that though

I think this will stir things up a bit....I don’t care about E cars , hybrids etc. I’ll bother with them when oil runs out and by then I’ll be too old to drive/dead.  :P

oh yeah , add autos to the list . I’ll stick with my manuals  thx  :meep:

Ahhh manual every time. Especially in dodgy weather.

I love driving a manual actually. Every clutch seems a bit different. I remember my old Ford in the UK...could hold that ****er on the clutch biting point up a ******* vertical wall...real driving.

I get it, but the performance you can get out of some E cars can far exceed the performance of petrol cars. Yes, it doesn't sound as good, but they can really haul arse. I've been considering converting my old Datto over for a while but am waiting for the battery technology to improve enough so I don't need a shitload of 12V batteries in the car. The power to weight ratio will be ridiculous, and instant power.

And automatic isn't driving, it's simply steering.

Yeah I know what you mean in regards to the power . I’ve watched plenty of Tesla vids etc racing petrol cars....still don’t care . No sound , smell ...kinda like driving a fast washing machine. The whole recharging thing , battery range ,puts me off. We saw ONE recharging dock in Canberra last week...
Spot on re “driving “ autos!  :lol:

The last time I drove a manual was a few years ago when my younger brother had an op on his hand and couldn't drive, so I drove him everywhere in his 4x4. FMD...after driving that for three weeks I was glad to go back to auto....lol, ......though once you can drive a manual you never really forget.......and I still hate hill starts.....lol

Tip..if you want a laugh..go to an intense go-kart session that last like an hour and many laps. Then jump straight in your manual car.

I nearly set the ******* air bag off just breaking for the first set of traffic lights and sent the gear box through the bonnet...!

Your mind and body stays in go-kart mode for around 20mins after!

Autos are good for the ladies though..it lets them drive..bless them..:meep:

The only auto I’ve ever owned was a ‘97 Ford Fairmont Ghia. Nice enough car , good to just put the foot down and go, but....would’ve been heaps more fun if it had’ve been manual . My Mrs ended up wrecking it  :ninja: ...just sayin’

Was waiting for Ed to come along to tell us how he started his first car with a crank handle at the front and had to drive behind a fella waving a red flag.

Even though I wouldn't drive a manual if you paid me. Why make life any more complicated than it has to be. ;)
