I second that man! I love driving around downtown in my small town and hearing the sound of the shifter echo off the buildings and parked cars. I also totally agree that the heavy, mechanical feeling of the shifter is one of the major reasons I bought this car, too. Also, I like your signature. I have that same quote in my Facebook profile.
