The manual transmission is getting harder and harder to find… the latest stats show that only ten percent of cars now sold in U.S. have manual transmissions. Even though the current generation of automatics and, even more so, the new crop of dual-clutch gearboxes are on par with or even surpassing manual transmissions in performance and economy, some of us still prefer to row our own gears.

Well, Car and Driver feel the same way and they’ve decided to do something about it. They have started the “Save the Manuals” crusade. Check out this video they put together, then tell us what you think about the great manual vs. automatic debate!
