1. Do not look at avatar.
2. Do not research available transmissions.
Too late! I've already used the GT350 and the Viper as examples when someone tried to tell me something like "Foreign cars get by with manuals because of their little 4-cylinder engines. When you have an American car with American power, a manual transmission can't take it."

Kinda funny really as I've encountered this a few times, "uh wait no, I can't drive this one, sorry." Ironically my Millennial son's (Son #2) first car he bought was a Honda Civic 5-speed standard.

...Reminds me of the "back in my day we used Iron Sights" veterans that have an aneurysm over the concept of a red dot sight. Sorry we're more lethal than you gramps...enjoy your VFW fish fry.
My grandpa was a WWII veteran, and probably would have thought a CCO or ACOG was pretty neat.

I was trained on iron sights, 2004-2010. In 2010 I finally saw CCO up close, and was like "That's got to by why that doofus is shooting better than me."

So while I was deployed to Asscrackistan, I bought myself a CCO for my birthday, and put it on the M16A2 the Air Force had issued me. Took it to the range the next chance I got, and by the end of the day I shot better than most of the doofuses around me.

(Then I found out the whole DoD had gone to a new model of CCO, and the armory no longer had the batteries for my kind. 🙄)

Clever, but I would have just hidden all of the USB ports so they can't plug their phones in. What good is stealing a car if you can't share the experience on TikTok?

Millennials are turning 40 this year.
True, some are turning 40. The 20-something millenials in my office all drive automatics. 😕

In my local sports car club, the millenials all drive sticks, and the automatics belong to old men with German cars. 😆

and...... my 2020 GT is the 10 speed auto! I truly liked it over my test drives with the 6 spd stick.

I was the opposite. Renting a 10-speed for a weekend convinced me that when I bought my own Mustang, I wanted a stick.

You made it sound like you got a new Mustang every year, lol. Hot swapping like that is probably pretty fun, although I feel like a year isn't enough time to really get to know and enjoy a car. That's just me though.
I bought 4 cars in 2019 and sold 3 of them 18mo later having spent decent $$$ mod'ing them. I agree it takes a few weeks to find the warts. Smiles/mile leader was the GTI by a healthy lead.

I get it, potato, poh-tat-toe, tomato, Ta-Mah-toe. Best thing is we both got the Mustang we wanted!
