AutoShow in Motion

Well im very exicted b/c the autoshow in motion tour is coming to my area. It looks awsome and its all free . I cant wait to pop into a vette or cts-v and tear up the track. But i just wanted to get input from people who went. Another problem i have is that i dont drive stick.....will they have cars such as the vette, cts-v, gto etc in automatic....or am i stuck driving the pos cars.

I'm not sure they'd have a lot of the nicer cars in an auto...

My buddy just went last weekend and had a Hummer nearly on its side on a terrain course, he came back with such a grin after ripping around in those cars, looked like a 4 year old on Christmas morning

Yup, I've been there and YES they have cars for those who can't drive stick

You'll actually find the lines for the corvette to be shorter for the auto....no one waits in line to drive an auto corvette unless they can't drive stick.

95% of the cars are automatic, anyways. I think the only manual cars I drove there was the Vibe GT and the corvette.

LOL!

you know how to drive stick because, what....you've seen it done before? You're cute. Trust me when I say I'm not being mean, but remember this post the first time you get behind the wheel of something with three pedals.

Learning stick is 5% theory and 95% practice. No matter how much you think you know, it doesn't mean anything until you get the "feel" and lots of practice...If you lived near me I'd teach you....
