Depends on the car I guess, can't imagine driving Marvin with a floor shifter, it would be too low, and I like the center console shifter in Wile-E...
Bigger cars or those with more upright seating are better suited for column shifters, smaller cars with a lower, sportier driving position are better suited to the center console shifter I guess.
However... I miiiight at some point try rigging a button or paddle shifter on Wile-E when I discover more about how the electrics work, since it's an electronic auto in him.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
