Jaguar made a few manual versions of their cars, more so no, with the smaller ones (as you suggested). Mercedes manuals of old were rubbish, the shift was clonky and the throw was excessive. BMW on the other hand, make amazing manuals, and have always done so in my opinion!

In the UK most buses these days are automatic, but older mini-buses were manual, mainly the Mercs that you suggest, and some older Ford Transit style buses too! Alot of old buses of all sizes were semi-automatic.
