      Last week I drove from Seattle to San Francisco for an interview.

      It turned out to be a screening. We could have done that on the PHONE.

      Almost certainly not a VW specialist. These are not mistakes that anyone with experience would have made.

    5. opinion -- Want to save the Manuels? Let the dealers die off

      This has come up a couple times lately in separate threads, but it connects nicely to the ongoing Tesla dealer threads as well:

      Manual transmissions have all but disappeared from dealer lots as...

      Is that surprising? To me it isn't. Dealers aren't paying entry level employees to be qualified drivers.

      It can be both. Dealers affect this by being risk-averse.

      You're not, I guess.

      It was like this at a Toyota dealer ten or twelve years ago. The buyer put only a manual CAMRY on the lot (of all things) and sales people laughed people off the lot for...

      It's sort of a running joke in BringATrailer comment threads that there's always a black 911 in the background of photos.

      It's all ****ty mystery gas with detergents added.

      Sometimes they don't add water and dirt. If you're really lucky they don't put Ethanol in it. THAT's the premium stuff.

      Apparently that was for the Chevy Venture.

      Of course you are forgiven for not being precise on that. I won't be getting back those minutes of my life.

      With any luck, actual super villains will be so paralyzed with choice that they forget to do their job.

      It's arguable that they didn't work on the original either.

      Specialist dealers are the way to go. They know the typical problems, they often DO fix cars, they might honor a warranty and many of their trade-ins are from customers and not guaranteed to be from...

      I've seen a few GTV6s and Milanos on the road in the last couple weeks. Great sounding cars, I'm on the search for one myself.

      You aren't even telling me those are comparable. Geez.. Modified RHD examples just are not the same as an original-condition example you can register and drive in any state tomorrow.

      NADA is remarkably useless for special interest cars, which makes perfect sense because dealers don't really bother with special interest cars. They sell...

      It's possible to enjoy a vintage super car, but tires have to be considered a perishable item and not just a consumable one.
