    Eh. It was a 84 300ZX Turbo but he never took care of the car. I liked the car though.

    Remote start is for "drivers" with automatic transmissions. I use the term "driver" loosely, since anyone can drive a go-cart.

    I have had a remote start on every manual transmission car I have ever owned. It is just a habit to leave the vehicle in neutral every time I get out. Can't live without it!!

    I was staying in some small town motel for work once. About 6am some dude's autostart drives his F150 thru his room's wall. :rofl:

    Okay so it didn't actually go thru the wall but it jumped the 6" curb and hit the wall, knocking the air conditioner out and wrecking a bunch of the brickwork outside and drywall and trim inside.
