Thursday Twister: Unlikely Manual

Welcome to another edition of DT’s Thursday Twister, the game that has more twists and turns than a Thomas English muffin. On a previous Twister we covered cars that were only available in manual gearbox, but PhiLOL suggested that we cover cars you thought were automatic only, but did have a rare manual version. 

My entry into the world of unlikely manual vehicles is the 2000-2002 Lincoln LS that was available with the Jaguar AJ V6 mated to a Getrag 221 5-speed manual gearbox (one was featured on DT in Sept of 2013).

Standard contest rules are as follows: 

1. Only one car per comment (be sure to hit the refresh button on your
browser before you post, in case someone else has posted since you loaded
the page).  Do not nest the replies, just reply to the main post — if
you reply to someone else’s comment it should be in reference to his
comment and not another submission.

2. The contest never ends.

3. One submission per make/model.

4. Each car must be a production model.

5. No anonymous submissions — pick a name with the Name/URL dropdown.
