The fact that they can't beat my car up because it is one of those "standards" is a benefit for me...
By the time any of my children (real or hypothetical) can drive my car I'm sure I'll be happy to let them have at it
My wife - I trust her to drive it. It's only about 1 time every two weeks. She babies the car more than I do b/c she likes getting good MPGs.
I actually would like to teach my kids how to drive standard if they still exist in 15 years.
