Just curious how many of us are rowing out there - and how many can actually enjoy a coffee while taking a turn.

Happy Holidays, everyone.

Track Monkey = Manual. If it were a straight-liner, no doubt an auto.

I am all about the Automatic. Don't want to be in traffic off and on the clutch and never worry about missing a shift

Auto. I had a 93 Mustang LX 5.0 manual for 20 years. Decided no more manual. A pain in the ass in stop and go traffic (all city driving). I was a lot younger though. My how time flies. :(
Just turned 71, somehow my wife convinced me to go automatic, and she's usually right! But my son has a six speed and let's me drive it when I want so I got the best of both worlds.

My dad has been telling me for years that eventually I won't want a manual anymore. It hasn't happened yet, and I haven't owned an automatic transmission vehicle since 1993...

Auto....I traded in a manual for an automatic since I was driving around with a broken knee. My knee finally got replaced this month and I am not allowed to drive a manual for 6 weeks from the date of surgery. I guess I'd have 2 weeks to go. Doesn't matter now that I have an automatic. I sometimes miss my manual though. Think it would be really nice to drive a 6 speed manual Mustang.

Mine is a manual, and traffic does not bother me with it. I drove big rigs in traffic and just know how to select the right gear to just idle along. I love being in control of the car completely. 1988 Thunderbird Turbo Coupe is a 5 speed. Of course my 1999 F150 and 2014 Escape are automatic. Mama Can drive a manual, but says she don't want to mess with it! lol

I am 64 and still like manuals so my daily driver Mustang is a manual. My weekend toy is a 68 Barracuda with a manual.

I do have a beater pickup with an auto and my wife's car is an auto. I will admit if I am going into the city I will take the truck or my wife's car but it's mainly because I don't want the Mustang to take a beating from all the pot holes and door dings.

Manual. Only auto I've had was the Mkiii Supra turbo. It was extreamly good but I so longed for the manual. I'll control that part of the car thanks not some computer that thinks it knows what your doing or about to do.

To be fair, some of us check threads like this one a few times a day.

Manual all the way, one of the few coupes left in RWD and deserves a manual!
For us in the States, in this segment/at this price point, there's really only Mustang, Camaro and Dodge Challenger. To me, and clearly all of us, the Mustang is a clear winner.

First manual I've ever owned. I love the control I get with it. Though there are times I wish I could just not worry about it (stop and go traffic in LA...) and I've driven a rental Ecoboost a few times with the auto and it's definitely still a pretty fun car. Don't regret the decision at all though.
