Please Help Save the Manuals


We all know a true Fuelfed car has three pedals and harness bar. But in order to defend the stick shift way of life from the onslaught of apathetic automatics, Car & Driver has initiated a new awareness campaign under the “Save the Manuals” banner. The plan is more of an awareness campaign, complete with PSA videos, stickers and buttons. Watch out slush boxes, this is a no-holds barred assault.

Arguments about why the age of the manual transmission is coming to a close – more efficient automatics, the rise of the double-clutch cog box, etc – but we still love rowing our own gears. Car and Driver has brought up an interesting point by saying that manuals can actually help cut down on distracted driving. How? Try to text while driving something with a third pedal.
