Hey shut your trap! lol jk I am not extra sensative- i just hate when people think automatics can't perform and the reason why i bought an auto is because they think i can't drive stick..

I can almost out drive all the people i know that have a stick, with a stick.. I sure as hell can drive it =). I simply bought my automatic b/c the price.

It was either downgrade to a 07 V6 5spd, or upgrade to a brand new 06 GT automatic.. It was a no-brainer to me.

If one practices a stick will shift smoother then an auto going into and out of a turn.

If one has a dead battery all one has to do is get the car rolling at 3 MPH and pop the clutch and the car will start.

LMAO!! It's gone from 'feeling the road' and being one with the car to getting it to start when you have a dead battery. Such strong points for the manual!! :nogrinner

No they won't, there is a switch that keeps the car from starting if the clutch pedal isn't depressed. Pop the clutch, disconnect the switch. Safety feature.
You could do that with the older ones.

Thats interesting. I figured that the starter was just disabled with the clutch switch, I would have guessed that the Car would still be able to be jumped, I want to test that.

My BMW Motorcycle had the clutch safety switch, but I was still able to jump it.

Well excuuuuuuse me. Turn the key on not to start. Depress the clutch and put the transmission in first, get the car rolling at 3 MPH and pop the clutch; this will cause the engine and alternator to turn supplying current to the plugs. The starter is not involved; the starter is what is prevented from getting power with the clutch disconnect switch. :youcandothis:

The reason one can not get an extremely powerful car with an auto is they want to keep them out of the hands of women and people with poorly working body parts.
