My preference is always standard, but some of my vehicles have been, by necessity, automatic.
For me, automatic.
For Eddie Murphy, I believe she's called Shalimar.
I second that Miata MX-5 owner.Today's technology has changed all that - but nothing compares to the feel of a manual stick shift in a sports car (... well almost nothing).
The poll is not complete for people such as me.
I own a 1949 Meteor with a three speed standard tranny known as "three-on-the-tree".
I have a 1970 Monte Carlo with an automatic.
I have a 2001 Windstar with an automatic.
I have a 2001 Suzuki 4 x 4 with an automatic selective range.
I have a 2003 Nissan Xttera with a five speed standard.
I have a 2005 Ford V-10 Motor Home with an automatic.
How should I answer the poll?
Blah, it's still automatic!! Just instead of automatically shift gears it's automatically adjusting the one variable gear.You missed a few options for your poll. My car has a "Continuously Variable Transmission" and does not have gears in the traditional sense.
Other Hybrids and electrics use similar approaches.
