I was on a wine and chocolate tour recently and ran into a group of Triumph enthusiasts. Their cars reminded me of my first British sports car that I owned and how I fell in love with driving a stick shift. It also reminded me of the art and charm of driving.
I now drive an American sports car, still with a stick, although mine has six speeds now, and I still love driving a manual transmission. Having a sports car with lots of horse power certainly adds to the fun, along with that feline growl my car makes every time I shift. So here’s to British and American sports cars! Cheers!
