Saw this in the Gizmodo comments section, but I think it applies just as much to us and our car choices.

  • Manual vs Auto - inconvenience wins!
  • Number of doors - 2 doors best for inconvenience and cost
  • Big engines - more expensive to buy and uses more gas
  • “Quirky” cars - inconvenience is cool!
  • Vintage cars - enough said

As driver of a 2-door manual German car with a big engine and no spare tire, I identify with this.
