WSJ reports sales of manual transmission cars up 10% last year, although they're still only 9.3% of total automotive sales. (as recently as the 50's the figure was 50%) The trend is expected to continue, and the carmakers forcast 12% by 2005.

Biggest increase was in Subarus. (Have you seen all the WRX ads on tv? I just might have to get one! Yellow?)

Well they're in luck! Drivers instructors are offering classes in driving with manual transmissions and in their case the cost will be tax deductable.
