"Heysoos! I really am sorry for you!

Rob C"
..............................................

"Why? I enjoy mine. Try to enjoy yours.

nizai"

.............................................


But I do enjoy both; I simply don't find them remotely similar and am surprised and sorry (for you) that you do.

But hey, it's a wonderful world, and maybe others like to drive on automatic.

You don't read my posts very carefully.

Have a look again and I think you might understand the comparison.

Hint. Comfort is not high on the priority list when you want to enjoy something other than sleep.

Isn't driving on automatic a comfort driven decision?

I try, niz, I try, believe me.

Comfort is always high; only teenagers opt for the frantic fumble in the rumble seat. More sophisticated souls both understand and appreciate the value of ambience; that delightful dinner, the ever-so-light trace of Chanel 5 on the back of a slender neck, eyes that smile even when the lips are firm. Goddammit niz, I really do feel for you. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind being a teen again - at least, an over-eighteen teen. At the moment, I'm just thirty-nine and holding. But my grip's slipping...

Driving an automatic is capitulation; it's defeat at the hand of the skill that creates the buzz as you ride out of the corner with the power on, the Targa-top off and the breeze blowing the cobwebs out of your head and her hair into your partner's eyes and up over her head. But that's exaggeration: in the Fiat X1/9 there were no draughts: you could drive with the top stowed away even during a Scottish winter, the heater on and not a spangle of frost on your beard! A sensation to die for and, if you overcooked those curves with a mid-engine setup, die you well might, but so quickly you wouldn't notice. But you wouldn't go into a hedge sideways as in a Pug 205 (numéro sacré!) 1.9 GTI.

Ah, that Golden Age again!

Well, a lot of people tell me I should grow up one day. Still waiting to happen. But I can tell you, after forty, things ain't gettin' any easier. Still regard comfort as a high price to pay.

PS. Never went in a hedge, sideways or otherwise. Still trying.

Niz, don't listen to other people telling you to grow up; as I said, I'm thirty-nine and holding, and the first year I became thirty-nine I didn't even notice. My mother told me, during her late eighties, that she felt in her twenties inside; it clearly runs in my family and so I wouldn't criticise you for feeling somewhat the same!

But I would regarding hedges: don't try to go into them in any direction.

Well, listening or not, it doesn't seem to happen.

As for hedges, I am not that good at meeting any, it seems.
