The older I get the less I understand the manual transmission fetish. I drove manual vehicles strictly for years. I even did a few manual swaps on automatic vehicles when I was younger (80's Supra and an old S-10). Looking back it was not at all worth the time or effort. I finally switched to automatics in 2020 and I will never go back, should have done it years ago. No point to this post other than suggestive "old man wisdom"
