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+ ?
