Only one car left in my garage now with a manual transmission. We have an '09 Jeep Wrangler, and the dealer changes the oil and filter for not much more than it would cost me to do it myself, and I don't worry about disposing of the old oil. The only problem is that they don't have any lot boys who can drive a stick. I think it is partly a generational problem. When I was first learning to drive that's about all we had. If you wanted a performance car, and that would be me, a stick was always faster then the automatics of the day. As automatics improved and the demand increased more and more people just bought automatics. Now you have a couple of generations of drivers with little or no experience with a manual transmission. Manual transmission owners do need to be careful about who they let drive a stick shift because many people find just driving a real challenge without worry about a clutch.

Another thought might be to look at the stock 2bbl. setup on the '50 Oldsmobile. I know it's supposed to be an Oldsmobile engine, but the Olds and Cadillac look very close and a lot of detail will he hidden by the air cleaner. Then use the 3-2's on the Olds.

This is really nice. What engine did you use ? Valve covers look like Pontiacs. If I could afford a 1:1 Olds this is how I'd want it to look.
