exactly. I owned one automatic 2nd gen. Frankly it was boring to drive and after a few years, swapped to a stick. Every other Muscle car since then is a manual. My daily drivers are automatics for convenience. Even my 2001 Camaro SS Was a stick and I commuted in That. My wife thought I was crazy. I love the new corvettes but with no manual trans, I’d never buy one. Now, that’s just me- I love shifting gears in a performance car. Others (obviously) have different opinions. As to autos in a 70 z28, they tend to sell for a little less ($5k) and take longer to sell but they all get bought.
