I'm sitting in study hall just chillin right? Well this kid I know bought a 90 something Neon R/T (Pictured Below).



So his car is a stick and all he F'ing does is talk crap on automatics. I'm really tired of this "Automatics Suck" mindset.

I replied with "My car would smack you" (I was pissed). :mad::lol:

He then said "So?" :confused:

I said "Then why are you talking Sh!t?" :angry:

He then went on to brag about who automatics make your car slower because it drops HP/TQ, but yet didn't know why so I had to inform him.

These kids are really really pissing me off, I'm only a month or 2 away from the GTA getting out from hibernation. Then we'll see if automatics suck. Grrrrr! :angry:

I have 3 points to make:
1: That is one fugly car.
__________
2:There are some really fast Automatic cars. I can't think of any but that's not the point lol.
__________
3: Most teens are stupid
__________

actually 4:
He made no sense saying that Automatics make you car slower, and then going on to admit that your auto was faster than his gearbox.
:lol:

Everyone used to ask me why I bought an automatic when I had my IROC in high school. I would have bought the stick had it come with the 5.7.

I just remembered, one of my close friends in high school was a die-hard Mopar guy. He had an early 90's Dakota that was a 2wd, 4cyl and 5 speed. It was a dog, but he rowed through the gears like it was some sort of monster. He was going to trade it in on a 98/99 Neon R/T (like the one in the picture). Oh, the memories...

It's a completely personal preference thing for everyone. I can't tell you how many teenagers who don't know schit (and usually can't drive stick to save their lives) talk bad about automatics. My BIL does it all the time, and he goes through clutches like nobodies business, in a 90 ESCORT.

I say this all the time: Unless you're a professional driver, the friend you have with an identical car, but has an automatic, is going to kick your ass stoplight to stoplight every time.

Seriously, if anyone starts talking down automatics in a conversation about cars, I automatically know their a douchebag that doesn't really know schit about cars, but loves to pretend. A "poser" if you will.

Whoa Devryn...I like your new Avatar, it is almost the same as a custom sticker I have waiting for my 2010 Camaro SS (with Auto)...mine is just a white vinyl sticker, but if you replace "Ford" with "OPEC", it is a dead match! :thumbsup:

How about this strictly automatic car:

Mercedes SLR McLaren

or for that matter most of the Mercedes line.

like the new SL65 AMG Black Series Twin turbo V12 661 HP 738 lb-ft of torque.
