It just comes down to what one will tolerate or has to tolerate when driving, really. Yes? Driving an automatic in stupid traffic made sense to me at the time. I suspect that the traffic where you are might be a little less stupid...or maybe a lot less. I know that when I lived in Idaho, the driving was a lot less stupid, but that was in the mid-'70s. Now that all those California prunes are moving up there,it's gonna get stupid, bet you money.
