Didn't it mean it like that, was a genuine question.

Though I will also accept that you think I'm that witty.

Oh I thought you were implying I was the daughter or the grandmother.

I’m a bit sensitive today.

I had them all over well chest arms back and legs anyway. Almost back to a point I can wear a t-shirt and shorts and you can’t see any.

Yeah i reckon Ed and Paps are kidding themselves at turning their noses up at that.
There's a difference between something not being exactly to liking and turning ones nose up at it.

I prefer a VK Commodore to a VL but if someone offered me a Turbo I'm taking it and running. Or driving. That would make more sense.

So you had a bit of everything? Didn't go the full Dane Beams?

Dane Swan's tattoos actually look like something an enthusiast would get, but Beams... Dice. Spider web elbow. Flames. Southern Cross. It's like boss level bogan bingo.

Ferrari is making one FFS. We are truly in the end times.
And people thought society was doomed when Holden was selling 100k commodores a decade back.

Now even the most prestigious brands in the world are looking to tap in to that soccer mum market.

They're just giving the people what they want. Ferrari don't even sell manual cars anymore.

Hey my V8 punches out about that!

It's also 15 years older and 50 cubes smaller though.

Brock's VKs were putting out close to 200kw with the same engine.

'nobody wants manual anymore'

Every car review I've watched recently

'the proper manual gearbox is fantastic in this car (HSV) and offers a true driving experience'

But edgie, most people don't want a true driving experience!

Well mate, I reckon those who are buying a Ferrari do, and if they are just casual motorists, then there is officially too much money in the world.

Ha - I'd just finished my evening cuppa when that very product came up on the news as being recalled due to ethylene oxide contamination. Luckily my pack is outside the use-by date range mentioned in the article, which is just as well as I'm 2/3 of the way through the pack.

Depends on your definition of manual. You still select each gear just not in the traditional way. Their core purpose is building sports cars and all the best racing categories use this technology, so that makes sense to me.

What doesn’t make sense is four doors and a boot that’s big enough for a pram and the weekly shop. That’s about as far away from who they are as they can get. It’s their Southern Power moment.

Lambo made a 4x4 and it didn't diminish their rep.
