Maybe you're better off for seeing automatic transmissions in a far more favorable light, maybe you're not.

You're correct I've never driven those older automatics, I believe what you say about them. I assumed you meant the stigma of autos in general vs manuals, not older autos vs newer. I generally don't view automatics in a favorable light(did you mean compared to your view? We're probably pretty close!), I will always rather drive a standard. There are exceptions; I drove an older BMW 530 auto, and actually liked it. I'd still prefer the manual version though.
