My DD is a stick shift and I don't mind it till I get into traffic and I get tired of holding the clutch in or I have to stop on a hill and some ding dong is on my butt. My 79' has a C6 and I'm happy with the automatic, even nicer when I'm off road, just put it in 1st gear and away I go. Friends have manuals in their vehicles and hate all the shifting they have to do when we're out wheelin' around. I'll sacrifice the MPG for less dancing with 3 pedals.
