    I'm talking about the delivery vans....is the majority still manual or are they switch over to more automatics?

    And, if you're really special, you'll get one of the new ones with air and a banging sound system.

    The percentage is directly proportional to the average age. Same goes for the skill level of the drivers it seems.

    They are called package cars not vans. The manuals are not switched over to automatics they are replace with automatics when there useful life spans is over.

    Depends on the area, there aren't very many autos down here and they're reserved for the Circle of Honor guys it seems.

    It is usually the opposite and the newer cars go to the newer drivers who cry and whine. The same thing happened when UPS started getting trucks with power steering and the whiners felt too special to man up and drive the old POS trucks.

    If you can, request one with the escalator stair step up. May as well go all out.

    Can you install some hydraulics? A lower rider package car would be perfect for some neighborhoods.

    If air ride tech comes to PC's, I'm a sure kneeling feature like transit buses have could be applied.
