Manual. You don't get the full experience of a muscle car, no, THE muscle car, if you have an automatic. I never bore myself driving because there's always something to Do

I've never had an automatic. Everything I own is manual besides my sled. I personally think it makes you a better driver attention wise. Keeps me focused.

I will when the track opens back up. I doubt my v6 with higher gearing will work out too well lol, but we'll see. I know I won't come near you, being a 6.

I can't wait for the warm weather ONLY for that reason.

Lol my truck was faster than any other truck on the market when I got it. Far faster. Since I never used it as a full on truck truck didn't matter than the ford could tow 1000lbs more.

Just saying.

Currently the stang is an auto and I love it. But my next will defiantly be a manual.

Different for me.. I have yet to lose to any other 2000 v6 that's auto. All my friends have raced me and I haven't lost to an automatic stang.. I always beat them off the line and my friend Stephen has a CAI in his auto with a tune and I still beat him bone stock in my manual^.^
