I don't drive manuals because it's fun or nostalgic. I drive them because I want control of the vehicle. I want control over lockup all the time. Most people don't seem to care, but some of us do.
I care man, im with ya. I care. Its okay, I care. Never forget were in this together.

But seriously manual transmission is linked to the way our brains prefer to operate. In control. Its acquiescence that leads to autos and all the evils of man.

That makes sense to me - both my GF and I are control freaks - and we have both only ever driven manuals. Now where is that crank - I want to start up this car myself. :)

Does anyone know if the Ranger will get the 7 speed manual?

Thats the other thing not having to rely on the starter or worry about a low battery, just park on a hill or get out your leg muscles. I had a few times where i sumberged my jeep enough that the battery went underwater and killed it. Let it dry for an hour and a atv dragged me around till it started in 3rd gear.
