  1. The notion that manuals "need to go away" is absurd on its face. There simply isn't any reason behind that statement. Choice is always a good thing, and that applies to transmissions as well as any other aspect of equipment in a car. For my part, even if I won the lottery tomorrow, I'd never buy a new performance/super/hyper car with flappy paddles - it's a deal breaker. For me, manuals are simply more fun and engaging to drive - that's a happy exchange over an automatic that shaves a few tenths off of the 0-60 time. "It's faster" pales in comparison to "it's more fun". As for the tech (drivin
  2. The way I heard this reported, Ford has a large supply of F150s on hand and expected no shortages at the dealerships.
  3. Should my ship unexpectedly come in, I'll be handing wads of cash to these guys: http://www.lefthandutes.com/
  4. Had I the 120k to do it, an HSV Maloo LSA would be in my driveway right now. Fastest production truck in history. Yes,yes...
  5. Thanks, feeling ok and still kicking. As for the timing, it was the headline from Ford that made me comment - couldn't let that go without saying something. That said, there is almost nothing for me to talk about these days when it comes to new cars and trucks. I pretty much hate them all. They are hideous, they cost way too much, the manual trans is all but extinct, same for 2-door anythings, same for RWD, same for V8s... so there is simply nothing there for me.
  6. Well, Ford hasn't made any car other than Mustang of even minor interest to me since the 70s. That said,this is just another step into oblivion for the automobile as we knew it. These days, cars are just the wrappers that flash-in-the-pan tech comes wrapped in. It's over,boys.
  7. I have an NOS grille - but it is spoken for.
  8. And let's not forget their penchant for getting something right - just in time to cancel it.
  9. Perhaps. But so much of what they have done over so many years is counter-intuitive. And just how many times have we watched them miss the boat?
  10. GM's marketing decisions never cease to perplex. You would think by their decisions that the mission is to sell fewer cars.
  11. Roger makes the distinction I would call most likely here. Assuming that the 8 lug prototype indicates production trim for this Suburban, and only the 5.3 as motivation, 2500 minus the HD suffix feels just about right. Not offering the 6.0 (or the Duramax for that matter), strikes me as typical GM hedging. Not very smart, but par for the course. With that said, this will plug a gaping hole in the lineup. People TOW with Suburbans, often that is why the purchase is made over other alternatives. So we really need to see the towing ratings for this new offering to know what we have here.
