Wow, you had a busy weekend.  As a daily driver the automatic is pretty
much a no brainer, especially if you're going to deal with bumper to
bumper and rush hour with any regularity.  You can also have a lot more
fun with an automatic Q on a snow covered parking lot than a stick,
between throttle, brake and emergency brake when she decides she's gonna
do whatever she wants irregardless of inputs it's a unique experience vs
the more predictable 5 spd.  I drive the 200TQA when I "feel the need",
the V8Q as a winter daily driver, and lately I find myself with the most
"cage" time in the 300TDT, something to be said about a tank which sips
crude #2 like a teetotaler.  Have gravitated back to 2 wheels this year
after a long hiatus, can't beat the bang for the buck there, nothing like
blowing the doors off some $300k+ ubber car with something that probably
cost less than the other guys floor mats.
I live on a one-way street that's also a dead end. I'm not sure how I got
here, or how I'm going to get out.
