The most recent addition to the fleet is a 2003 F-150 which lives at our weekend home in the country. I was originally looking at slushbox pickups, but the Mrs. asked "why not stick?" I didn't have a good answer. I was actually relieved to add manual transmission to the search criteria because it narrowed the field of viable candidates in a 75 mile radius from several thousand, to about 10. Made shopping sooooo much easier...and stupid carjackers can't jack it.
