    I would like to go on record to say I have never lost a 10mm anything.

    I did lose a 4lb sledgehammer once, tucked away back by the transmission on a Greyhound bus......

    I wouldnt doubt if everyone starts going that way. Heck, when is the last time you seen a standard transmission in a passenger truck.....or a long bed for that matter...lol I'm not against the autos. I hated them something fierce when they first came out.....they sucked! I haven't driven a brand new one. I've driven some that where around 5ish years old and they weren't bad at all. Honestly,
    If they were decent and I was even to buy a brand new truck, I would prolly spec it with an auto. However, I don't see that happening though.

    I just went on Mack's builder site. Eaton manuals are available with the Anthem but not the Granite. Only the MP7 or MP8 are available in them. No Cummins option.

    SPD has a few newer Volvos with a standard 13 speed in them.

    so I’m not sure how true the whole “automatic only” thing is.

    I will say most Volvo drivers are of the “I can’t drive stick” persuasion so maybe their just delivering what their customers want

    Hard to drive a stick when you can't be bothered to take your foot off of the dashboard.

    Those .30 Carbines may be worth a few bucks if they’re numbers matching. The IH Garand certainly would be.
