Firstly, it probably tells you that my phone makes rather crappy indoor pictures.
And secondly, it might confirm what you might have guessed from a few blogs ago.
I’ve crossed over to the dark side.
That is; I’ve stopped driving automatic.
And that brings my car-owning record to three in six months. Blikje 2.0 was a rather short lived adventure, which has made me a bit reluctant to name and pimp this new acquisition. But I guess I’ll do it anyway as soon as I get over the shock.
Meanwhile I’m learning to stick shift and I’m getting better and better at it. And I must say it does feel a bit cooler than driving automatic. I feel strangely grown up and streetwise when I stomp down on that clutch pedal and shift into a higher gear. (declutching too fast and having the motor conk out.. not so impressive, but I’m working on it).
Anyway, my new Renault Clio (I) can do 160km/h which is more than any of my Suzuki’s ever managed and it even has a wiper for the rear window! (wow). So all in all I’m pretty pleased and just hope I can be done with the car breaking down-streak for a while.
