For any of you 'gearheads' this is just a reincarnation of the old school ratchet shifter. I had a 'cuda when I was in HS, a loooong time ago, that had this type and a pistol grip shifting knob. It was cool then, not really sure what I think about it now...
It may look the same but it's not. Apparently after selecting your gear, the shifter *returns to the center position*. If you're in park, the shifter is in the center, if you're in drive, the shifter is in the center position. Poor UI if you ask me.
That's delicious irony.
Most places I've been to in the US have no tax on unprepared food (ie grocery stores), and always have taxes on books.
Also, in some states (like PA), there is no tax on clothes since they are necessities.
So 1 for 3 isn't that bad... in baseball.
