I live in Indiana -- it has the same reputation, and (in parts) it is totally undeserved. And I actually live in our biggest city, but the country is never more than 10 minutes away. On the other hand, things are usually a bit quiet here in the evenings . . .

I agree; manual transmissions do have certain advantages even if you have lots of torque, but I still lament the passage of the peakier engines of yore, which did help justify the manual transmission. :-)
