All 3 of my cars have manual transmissions. I've never owned a car with an automatic.

I know how, just have zero interest in it. Give me an auto any day - press down and go.

Yes, and I've had reason to be grateful that my parents pushed me to learn both standard and automatic.

I used to drive one all the time, it has been a while but I'm sure I could again.

There is, however, a large gap between theory and practice. :-P

You're telling me. I got a half hour lesson from my Dad and then I was sent on a 400mi road trip. Took me a 1/2 hour to leave the first gas station I filled up at (parking break lol).

I'm actually WAY more comfortable with stick shifts than automatics to the point I'd rather let someone else drive than drive an automatic! What do you do with your left feet people?!?!?!?!

:P

First car a 1964 Beetle with 4 on the floor. Varoom! NOT! Two mustangs and a Saturn SC2. All stick. I wanted a Subaru STI 6 speed but she picked the Outback. oh well.

I prefer a manual.

Have you ever driven a 3 on a tree?

Yeah, my first car was a 1974 Chevy nova with a three on the tree. Good time :-)

That's what I learned to drive in. My Dad had a 82 Datsun pickup with a 5 speed and a 4 cylinder Diesel engine. Got 40 mpg back when diesel was 30-40 cents a gallon.

Sad now that they are getting hard to find. Even heavy duty pickups and even semi trucks have automatics now.

No, and it's too late to learn now. I no longer drive since I became legally blind six years ago.

Yep, and I've made sure my wife and all four kids know as well. Two of our four adult kids prefer -- and still drive -- manual transmission.

Me too. They are so much more fun than automatics.

Haha sorry if this is too much but that sounds dirty ;)

But I'm totally with you. Love driving a stick! Much more control

It does a bit, but I didn't mean it like that. I was waiting for one of my clever SOH friends to call me out on that. ;)

That is what I drive now.
