Haha, I used to be one. Always thought I will never get an auto. Getting old and lazy I guess. These days I am always on the run, eating drinking and talking on the phone while driving, so manual tranny is a no-go anymore. New autos are a lot better than the ones from the ole days too, some cars actually have better MPG and 0-60 times with an auto.
All my toys are still manual though - motorcycles and ATVs.
I will start my kids on manuals too.
