manual or automatic trans

I've got a 47 Chevy pickup with an injected 414 (stroked and bored 348) Big Block with lots of horse power. I cant decide whether to put in an automatic or manual trans. The only reason I can't decide is i'm 16 and have never driven manual but once and did okay. Just thought i could get some thoughts on what to do.

It's purely a personal choice. There are pro's & con's for both choices.

I'm interested in where you found an injection system for a 348. Are you using a throttle body that bolts to a 4 barrel manifold?
