Question Whyyyyyyy

Does my Car have to be an Auto.. I want it to be a 5 speed sooo bad.. I can tell it would be soooo much more fun to drive.. Cant sell it either to get a 5 speed cobalt/g5.. Just cannot let go of the car even if its been rolled off a freaking cliff!

Any suggestions? lol Wish I had a wrecked 5 speed car.. I know just what I would do.. plus having a parts car is amazing! I would give 1500 for one that's been rolled over 50 times as long as its drivetrain was good!

yep.. but I got the car brand new for 12500 on the road because Pontiac had shut down.. and it was the only one I could find new a year after they had quit producing them.. so the auto wasn't a big deal when the car was so cheap... someday cobalt's will be like cavilers and ill be able to get a wrecked one dirt cheap for parts! and by then ill be rich enough for a full out build! look up a g5 with 20k miles on it.. if you find one it will be like 12 or 13 thousand bucks ... couldn't pass the deal up

You know, when it comes to car shopping you usually have to kiss a lot, and I mean A LOT of frogs.
If you are disappointed that the car isn't a manual, tough. You should have made a list of non-negotiable features of the car you were going to buy and if any vehicles you checked out didn't fit the bill, don't buy it.
You CAN do a transmission swap, but that major surgery and I wouldn't even THINK about doing something like that to a brand new car.

Turbo. Do it. :3
