Default Where are the 5 Speeds?

How come I can't find any used 5-speed manual PTs?
I live in Central Texas and for 300 miles I can only find a couple of 5-speed manuals. I'm guessing it's because most of the used PT's I'm seeing are fleet vehicles and most of those would be automatics.

I have two 5 spd GT, one 03 one 06 Ragtop.

You just have to take your time and look on auto trader and craigslist, there out their, especially the base 5 spds, the GT 5 spds are much harder to find but when you do find one, dont let on you want the 5 spd since you can use that as a big negative in negotiating because people want autos

Thanks - the base 5 speed is what I'm looking for. I want something I can pull apart and put back together.

Just be sure the axle laying alongside doesn't belong to it!

Funny how chrome bumper is in fairly good shape, but large areas of paint have become rust..
