      Aston and Manual Shift

      today, aston martin said they would always offer a car with a manual transmission. I wonder why no other company has felt the need to say this....
      i'd never buy a sports car without a manual....

      Always and never aren't the best of words for any company to use.

      It's easy to say weird things like this when you don't have to worry about engineering your own powerplants.

      That V12 is glorious though, despite being almost 20 years old. The IMSA cars always sound amazing, that's for sure.
