Well, that goes without saying. Obviously if it were on a trailer, it
would be mounted forward. Aerodynamically it makes more sense.

If I learn how to drive a manual transmission vehicle within the next
year then I needn't worry too much about that. Of course, driving an
automatic pickup and nothing else doesn't allow me much time or
opportunity to learn and practice. I really would like to learn as it
would enhance the spectrum of cars I could purchase. Then again I have
mixed feelings about it as I drive in the city a lot. A LOT a lot. Like,
most of the time, except for 800+ mile road trips. And frankly, the De
would be a lot of fun around the city. I think unless I move out of the
city (unlikely - I'm a city boy born, bred, & buttered), I'll get an
automatic. There are plenty out there.
