    Too bad the bidding has ended. That'd be the perfect ride to get me from my home to the mailbox at my front gate.

    Interesting headlights.

    In the 1980's I had a chance to buy a mid 1960's 275 gtb 2+2
    from a shop for the price of the repair $2,000. It was in very good condition.
    I waited too long, someone else bought it. But, of course we drove it around before it was gone. I think it had 4 overhead cams and 12 one barrel carbs. I wonder what it would be worth now?

    Yeah, but is he truly happy, and does he get regular exercise?

    I think that sultan needs a different garage. I remember seeing a thing on TV awhile back where they were making robotic parking garages, where you'd drive onto a platform and it would lift your car to a slot. If it takes an hour and a half to get the cars out when they're in the back...

    Don't those cars come with the wheel mounted paddle shifters? If so, then that would explain the automatic designation, since those are in essence automatic. Those trannies are really fast shifting though, so no gripes if it is.

    It's a real manual transmission with a real clutch and computer actuated shifting.
    It actually shifts faster than a human being can with a manual.

    There's a Ferrari dealership in Los Gatos California. I've walked the lot, tempting but not entirely persuasive (although my wife would love one ). The couple of Austin Martins they had were actually the most tempting cars on the lot for me...James Bond!

    Yeah, it's not really an "automatic" in the classic sense where you're spinning hydraulic fluid to transmit power, there's no slippage or power-losses through the F1 tranny. In fact, it can learn how you shift and replicate your behavior be it mild trolling through traffic or all out banging up against the rev-limiter. Matches revs on the shifts so there's no jerking, even does the throttle-blip downshift going into corners, etc...

    I knew that. You think I'm a stunod or what?

    It was just funny seeing the auction listing as "Automatic". The F1tranny is not what you think of when you see Automatic Transmissinoon a car listing.

    I think old ass Oldsmobile with no hubcaps. I hate automatics! I guess technically it could be called a "solenoid actuated automatic clutch transmission", but that's just a guess.
