My truck is a manual with an aftermarket Hurst Pro Comp shifter. And I love it. V8, RWD, manual with hurst shifter. It don't get any better. I want to have this truck prefferably for the rest of my life. The interior is mint, body is mint. Never winter driven since I store it for the winter. It ain't just the outright speed of a vehicle. It's about assaulting your senses and how it makes your feel while your doing it. It's about storing up memories and sensations. Automatics don't do that for me.
