Apparently, the manufacturers think they know best what the public wants. If they are resurrecting a vintage automobile from the 70's, don't you think you should also concentrate on manual transmissions which most people from that era were driving?

Doesn't look like many Automatics are selling like hot cakes.
Ha! I heard Austin is FINALLY get a manual, after all the automatics. A base Classica. Fiat seems to think the 124 is a Buick Lacrosse. They must have the bean-counting accounts determining the 124 configurations. Pretty ridiculous for a small two-seater, retro sports car. I wouldn't say the automatics are "flying off the lot," at least at Austin.

Since you can't order what you want, at this time, apparently, I've resigned myself to a long wait. Oh well, at least the price should be attractive by the time what I want finally shows up.
