Very true.

A couple of years ago when I was looking for a sports car, it simply amazed me that the Miata was even available with an automatic.
After talking with 3 or 4 people who were driving a Miata, I came to the conclusion that there are a bunch of people who want to appear sporty without going to the effort of driving a standard or taking a performance driving class to learn how to actually make use of the capability a good handling car offers.

In my mind I equate it to the weekend Harley crowd who like to feel like bikers without any of the hassle that goes along with riding in the cold or rain.
