Hello all,

Just thought i would say hi. I'm a bit of a fake at the moment because i haven't actually purchased my Honda yet. I'm selling my car at the moment & hoping to pick up a 1.6 SR VTEC or a 1.8 VTI-S or VTI.
Then i can officially be part of the forum, instead of having my current imposter status.

Cheers ppl,

I'm currently driving a 1994 renault clio baccara. quite a nice car (if your a girl!!) I originally got it for the missus so she could learn to drive on an auto. Its on eBay at the moment.
Fingers crossed, i should have my Honda by next week.

Great, looking forward to the photos :)

Why on earth would you want her to learn on an auto? Surely that limits her terribly in the future?

Well, sort of. If we were staying in the u.k long term. We are going to immigrate back to oz in about 18month's. Most cars out there are auto's. If you hold an automatic licence for 12months in Australia. After that period you can drive both. Thats the plan anyway. She will never get her licence anyway. So i want something i'm not embarrased to drive. A 94 clio baccara (auto) isn't really an expression of my male identity. My image at work has seriously diminished after buying that car.

No way, even if you have never driven a manual before? That's crazy!

Agreed, Renaults are hardly the epitome of masculinity are they!

I know mate, its a bit ridiculous. My first experience with a manual was driving a truck. I had just got a job delivering alcohol to clubs & pubs around Sydney.
I turned up to work. They loaded the truck, gave me a delivery list & told me to crack on. Out of embarassment I didn't mention the fact I had never driven a manual. I managed to roll off the drive, after which i spent half of the day bunny hopping down the streets of Sydney. Alas, at the end of the day I had taught myself how to drive a manual.
Unfortunately, most of the alcohol on the back of the truck didn't make it through my lesson. I certainly didn't get to deliver many whole bottles of alcohol that day.

Seriously that is one of the dumbest rules I have ever heard. I assume there are many accidents on Australia's roads!
