I have  GM auto with 5 speed automatic. Also a paddle shifter on column..
Wonder why they bother to add that.

My F-150 has a six speed auto and it has a 'manual' option to shift one gear at a time. 

I did use it up the UP when we were 'off roading' about as much as I want to take that truck.  All the fire lanes are loose, loose sand and it drives the computer nuts trying to figure out 'where' to shift.  I can just put it in manual and hold it in 2nd and it does real good.

The latest trucks have a 10 speed auto.  I don't know if they come with the 'manual' option.

Ford doesn't even sell a manual shift of any combination in the F-150 now.  Not sure on the Super Duty.

Thats too bad.  I prefer a standard anyday.

I want the full blown tour from the basement to the attic. Probably not available.

Go up to that area late one night and ask around and find the best 'scrapper' in the area.  They guys that have been working in there the last 20 years hauling out anything not fastened down (and quite a bit that is fastened down). 

That person can probably give you an excellent tour literally from the basement (tunnels included) all the way to the attics. 

The only catch I see is your tour guide has probably never been there in the daylight so you'll have to go at night ;) ;) ;)

Apparently there are quite a few people around who have been 'protecting' various artifacts from the depot...
