      I have bought/titled over 150 cars not including flips for other people. My wife hates that, calls it Car ADHD. If the car was strictly for me, or my enjoyment, it was always manual. If I was going to share with the wife who can't drive a stick, or it was a really good deal, or something along those lines I would buy an auto. The only car I bought that was not manual and strictly or me: 09 F150. Not available in a manual with sucked, I only had it 6 months. I replaced it with a 4.0 ranger with a stick, (for sale).

      If I include cars I bought and never titled in my own name.. as in I buy a car and build it for a purchaser, I think I might be 300+ ?

      I have seen that done with the SRT... I did a auto to manual swap in a few VWs, I think it could be done fairly easily in an Aveo. But you would need enough parts to have to buy a donor car. And my refusal to do some of the "hacks" that people do to make auto to manual swaps work with less effort (like leave the car thinking it is in neutral and put the neutral safety switch on the clutch pedal, instead of wiring up the manual harness).

      OK, you have to post a lounge thread about this! Even if you have a build thread somewhere else, post a pic and a summary with link.

      I thought 25-30 was excessive.

      I have an auto, but previously had a 5 speed blue aveo. Three weeks ago my son hit a deer. I bought the first car I saw for the same money. It happened to be a silver 2006 Aveo with auto

      Welcome to the forum, seichin7! I'm hearing lots of stories lately of wildlife collisions. It's that time of year.

      3.6% bought manuals this year in Canada

      A timely article on a Canadian news site today:

      The percentage of cars that offer a manual transmission in Canada has fallen to just 9 per cent, down from 35 per cent in 1980, according to IHS Automotive. You can’t call a stick shift “standard” any more, when an automatic is usually the only option. Just 3.6 per cent of new car buyers in Canada so far this year opted to shift their own gears.
      The shift from manual: Why the demise of stick shift is accelerating - The Globe and Mail

      Not surprisingly, more entry level cars have a manual trans than the national average though. (As well as sporty cars and luxury sports cars.)

      And the Canadian numbers are probably similar to the U.S. ones. Maybe a bit more manual use here because we tend to buy more subcompacts than Americans.

      I suspect your Caravan had the 3.0L V6; because the 3.0L at the time was the mitsubishi 6G72 V6 (in 12 Valve SOHC form, with a Chrysler Intake and Electronics) and the 3000GT has (You Guessed it!) the 6G72 V6 in both SOHC and DOHC form! I bet you had to use the Chrysler Engine Harness
