I'm gonna try to be at the rally for my own fun. Enlisting my E30-driving buddy, too.

As for the project, well...many hours went into this, and here is the final cut. The original was about 10 minutes too long, and deemed "too technical" by my editors. So I did my thing, and here it is.

Love the vid! And I hate to be the bearer-of-bad-news, but...

You'll begin your companion piece about great American roadways the day we meet up for the mountain run! You could leave the lens cap on and still capture breathtaking footage!

I have automatic cars and 1 5 speed. I hate automatics. Was gonna swap for a 5 speeds on my cars but I dont have the currency to do it so I guess ill have to get some stick shift vehicles. And yes we have become very lazy. All my friends drive 5speeds. I am the only guy with an auto.

Piece by piece; the skill-oriented aspects of life that used to be commonplace in America have been whittled down or 'replaced' with an 'easier' counterpart... to the point that new generations aren't really even aware that things were actually done manually before they were around.

... great, now I sound old...

Keep in mind that this is a rough cut. I've just met with my editor, and I've got big changes planned. Stay tuned, OP will deliver next week.
