God Save The Manuals

God Save The Manuals

It's Saturday night in Sydney, Australia. A group of car enthusiasts decide to meet on a rooftop carpark. There's quite a mix of cars from different eras, origin and build purpose. 

As we group around each others pride and joy, we share stories behind our passion and what brought us to become car enthusiasts. 

Although our taste in platform and what influenced us to become petrol heads varies, we all share one thing in common - our love for the manual transmission. 

Each car has it's own unique driver feel and character when behind the wheel. If we were all to swap keys with one another, jump in and go for a spin, it's likely we would enjoy the quirks of driving a different platform and return the car with a smile ear to ear.

So what exactly is it about a car that makes us all excited and giddy when we hop in the drivers seat? Is it the 0-60 time? The sounds it makes? It's lap time around the Nürburgring? How many professional races it's won in history?

In reality, it's none of these... these all may be talking points or "bragging points" amongst a group of friends.

What really makes a car enjoyable to drive to as an enthusiast is it's engagement. "A car that demands you to control it, is a car that is fun to drive".

Why has society become so accustomed to comfort? Technology is always pushing for us to do less, have information and resources readily available within a click, making us lazy, impatient and dull. 

I'm not a luddite by any means, technology has improved our standard of living and opportunity in millions of ways. That being said, leave the automatics for the day to day commuter and pensioner demographic, we want manual transmissions in our performance cars!!
