    I pulled out the VW "Automatic Stick Shift" from my '74 VW Super Beetle and replace it with a 4 speed stick. Clutch/brake pedal bolted in place of the old brake pedal and the tube for the clutch cable was already in the center of the floor pan.

    I prefer a manual trans. Not all cars were available with them. I bought an '87 Audi 5000CS Turbo quattro new which only came in a 5 speed stick that year. Amazing that a flagship luxury sedan only came with a stick. It was fine with me. That car had 286,000 miles when I donated it to a charity motors place.

    I replaced the clutch once on it.(Bad throwout bearing) but since I was in there, I replaced everything. What a bear of a job. Two floor jacks needed to get that transmission out & back in.....

    Quoted from G-P-E:

    Drove manuals for years and loved them.
    Currently driving car with a German piece-of-shit 9-speed sloppomatic.
