Guys old car drive trains 30% to 60% loss stick or auto very little difference. The stick is usually faster because of more gears like 5 speed vs 4 for an auto.

Now the moder drive train like the Vette or the porshe 8% to 10% loss that is why a newer car will blow any old car away with same size engines.
