My car and work truck are automatics. But I still like shifting gears. I drive my 72 chevy C10 stepside truck every chance I get. But of course no city driving at all. It is all country or small town cruising with that stick shift. I even changed out the three speed saginaw trans with a four speed m21 wide ratio Muncy trans out of a sixtys era vehicle. I don't think I will ever get tired of shifting this trans.
