I’m in Georgia for the week to attend the WordPress Community Summit and I have a rental car for the week in order to get around. It’s one of the newer Ford Fusions:
From a design standpoint, I like it, especially the interior. However the seats are rather hard and the automatic transmission is rather slow to shift. That said I keep trying to hit the clutch pedal and I’m not used to an automatic transmission so for all I know this is how all automatic transmissions are like.
After two months of driving a beater in order to get good at driving stick and better at driving in general, I’ve moved on to a significantly better car — a 2001 Ford Mustang GT. I picked it up last Saturday night and it has a 260 horsepower V8 with a 5 speed stick shift. It is amazingly fun to drive and is really quick (at least to me, heh).
More pictures can be found over in the thread I made on some forums I run.
Here’s some video I made using my GoPro. It looks like I’m going slower than I actually am due to the wide angle lens and because I have it mounted on the top of my windshield.
