    I've been driving manual a lot lately(using my parents 'spare' car while mine's... Being a GM) and it made me curious how many of you guys drive what.
    I'm sure it's gonna be like a 5:1 ratio of auto to manny but yeah.
    ^ probably sarcasm.

    I drove manual for a long time. Now I sit in 2-3 hrs of stop and go traffic everyday, so I have an auto.

    I have both autos now, however my previous car was a manual.

    Exclusively drove manual since I first owned a car, but the last two cars I got rid of had slipping clutches, so I went with an automatic this time. I don't think I'd buy a standard as a daily driver again, if I can help it.

    I drive a manual. If I wanted to drive a go-kart I'd go to the indoor track.

    I drove manual in my last two cars (Subaru Outback and Toyota Camry) even in NYC. However, after the Camry died, I haven't needed a car. Were I to replace it, I'd probably go automatic since I'll be in a major metro area for the foreseeable future.

    I've always wanted to learn stick but my parents always had automatics since my mom can't drive manual, so I never really had the opportunity to learn it.
