How many of you have auto, how many have manual?

Ive seen a million population polls, and ive seen a million "which do you like better" but im curious how many people have each... percentage wise... so here's my poll...

::edit i know SMG is technically manual... but you can still put it in drive, and it doesnt have a clutch pedal...

i prefer stick, but my "significant other" does not. and doesnt want to learn. Besides ive been riding crotch rockets for the last ten years, so i got a car to be lazy anyways. and cars as fun as they are will never accelerate like a 1000cc sportbike.

This might have been a good poll for the poll forums. It's come up a few times before. At any rate, I like to row my own gears.

Auto here, wish I had manual..... I guess if I had a manual in the mornings when I'm sitting in traffic (going up hill which I do everyday) I'd be thinking... wish I had an automatic...

Grass is always greener on the other side...

ok.... here is a twist on the pole.

For those of you who answer manual, how many of your choose it to also prevent your significant other/spouse from driving the car?

I know I did....

Dude SMG should be in it's own category. It's not an auto tranny, it's a true manny tranny with a computer controlled clutch...

my first post explained my logic in putting the SMG with the autos... you CAN put the car in drive and not shift at all... you also DONT have a clutch pedal... so i know TECHNICALLY its a manual tranny... you dont have to know how to drive a manual to know how do drive it... you cant mis shift and you cant stall it...
