Long Live The Manual: 1996 Subaru Outback

Reports of the death of the manual gearbox are a frequent occurrence in the mainstream automotive press, as is death of the internal combustion engine. But I feel that these reports are exaggerated, or at least over-hyped for the savvy used car buyer in the audience…which is all of you guys and gals. I expect that the supply of used manual gearbox cars will continue to delight those in the know for years, even as auto manufacturers tool up to produce elecronic powered self hovering gizmos in the coming decades. Find this 1996 Subaru Outback offered for $3,000 in Santa Rosa, CA via craigslist.
