I prefer them and Manual Transmissions(rare in 'Murica where I live). Less crap to break on them and you can roll them down no matter what if for some wierd reason I drive into a large body of water and need to get out.

Not necessarily, the only people who own manuals are poor people lol.

In Britian, everyone drives manual unless they are lazy. Has nothing to do with the cost of a car. If i had the money to buy a car over $100,000 i would still have a manual as i love them.
User avatar #172 to #132 - rieskimo (02/13/2013) [-]
As do I, but that's just not the way here for some reason. I think it has to do with the fact that when buying a car new here in order to get an automatic transmission it costs an extra 1-2000 dollars. That's my guess, I like Manuals because it's a more engaging driving experience.

Ever heard the therm ''bug'' when there is a problem on the web or program, that is because bugs would sometimes get caught in the first machines.

More than 50 years and we still use it.

A cathode ray tube isn't a good place for a bug to be.
#158 to #9 - masterbatey (02/12/2013) [-]
But the point was that people wouldn't understand why we use the term "roll down" so this only proves the point because very few people know why a "bug" is a computer malfunction.

Before we had typewriters, people used letter molds to print and they were stored in cases for easy access. The capital letters were less often used so they were stored in the upper case, whereas the non-capital letters were stored in the lower case.

well, everybody has pretty much forgotten why we call the storage compartment in the back of our cars a trunk.

That would be like you saying remember when everyone fought with muskets in 1400

And then your dad almost beating you.

Just got the date wrong, assuming he is young he probably just doesn't calculate the time difference well. Remember how we all said "When people say 10 years ago I think 1990s"

Like I said to the other guy, he's 11 now, and we had a VHS up until he was 7. You will never understand my discontent with this child. He just now came up to me and asked what an "OP" is. I inquired as to why he asked and he said that someone on kik said it. He's a swaggot, who spends 2 hours a day on twitter and has had an iPhone since he was 9. He's the current scum of the earth, along with most other kids his age.

Why? Because he wasn't familiar with something he didn't grow up with... I mean if you came up to me and asked me what those old radioactive glucose fMRI tests were in the 90's and wanted to kill you because he didn't know what a PET scan was it wouldn't make sense. Sure what I said isn't common place, but same concept. Simply educate his young mind. I know it's a joke, and what not, and I found it funny, but don't be to harsh on the guy. I'll be honest, I know what a VHS is, but had to look up what it meant when I read this post.

All seriousness aside, murder him anyway, he now knows too much.

Depends, if you work for a company, or dealership, or yourself, then hell yea.

If you go to work at Joes Car and Truck, [made the name up] chances are you will not make bad money but you will not have that great of a job.

Well, it's nearly as old as me, and it wasn't well taken care of by previous owners. Plus 17 years is a pretty good run for window motors.

Oh god, that's glorious.
My old man (the previous owner of this truck) had three '76s and a 79, with one of them being nearly identical to yours, with a mildly built up 460 in it. Was bought for the motor, to go in the big pictured F250, but time ran out and he sold it to a scrapper with the other two trucks as well. As far as I know, the scrapper kept the 460. I sure as hell hope so

Isn't it better to have crank windows?
>Drive into a lake for some goddamn reason
>Car's battery cuts out because of water
>Can't open the windows, and can't open the door either due to pressure
In that situation you'd have to wait for the car to fill up with water that could be freezing, all while it falls deeper into the lake. Meanwhile, if you had crank windows, you could just roll the windows down fast as **** and proceed to gtfo of the car. Am I missing something?

Even with manual windows, the pressure difference stops the windows from rolling down.
