especially young people don't know how to drive stick shift.
Where I live, you can't use automatic car in driving school. If you want your drivers license you have to learn and drive stick shift from start to end.
Since then, I've always had at least one muscle car in my garage, not only in the past, but currently. So, not only can I still drive one, I can still crack off a mean power-shift or two, so I haven't slowed down that much, there.
then your the odd one out :D.
I drove stick shift in in a car when i was 10 or something.
And in tractors :), now in tractors we have something similar to "flappy paddles" in cars, just button pushing, or automatic.. Tho I still prefer being in the ½ automatic mode.
cars ... I did try a chevy silverado , fj cruiser , ford mustang 2003 , suzuki , some small cars ... I love driving when theres a challenge instead of when everything is auto ... Wanna drive a motorbike thou 😍
til I was in college but once I learned, I wish everyone at least had to learn that way...forced to pay more attention to what ya are doing that way. Too much multitasking anymore while driving, and I know I can be just as guilty as the next person at that!
I learned because I was put in a "sink or swim" situation, so to speak. When I was a teenager and looking to buy my first used car, my father took me to the garage of a mechanic not far from our home. This mechanic had a small, used compact car for sale. My father went into the...
My first car, how much I miss it, the 1986 Subaru XT. I clutch my heart and hold my breath every time I see a Honda knockoff from the same era, waiting until the last minute to admit the H on the hood is there.
I had a handful of tapes in that car, lined up in the center...
I much prefer to drive a stick shift. Because of the way I drive, I can get much better mileage with a stick. I have a 95 Ranger with the 4 cylinder engine and 5 speed transmission, and get over 35 miles per gallon highway, and about 29 in the city.
and only own one as well hard to find manual transmission rentals in the US but other countries it's not an issue really. I just like to have full control of the car that a clutch and manual transmission allows esp off road and in snow and heavy rain :)Audi BMW Subaru(2) Nissan...
are not that common and just one of the options but I can't really think of a scenario where I'd enjoy driving one. It takes the fun out of driving and I don't see why anyone who likes driving even a bit should ever consider driving on Auto.
if you can not drive a stick shift, you can not drive.
So, one day he drove home with a shiny black 1965 Mustang for all of us to learn to drive. Classic H pattern on the floor.
But, every time we were suppose to practice my father had the car. We all laugh about it today and...
EP used to have this section called "goals". And in this section you could add experiences that you aspired to achieve someday. Mine included "I give good brain" and "I can drive a stick shift" and "I rode on a motorcycle" and a bunch of other ones. Then one day the goals...
I can drive a manual car. must admit manual cars and autos both have their advantages and disadvantages. some moments i wish i had an automatic but majority of the time i love my manual car, so much more fun to drive but really is a pain when crawling in rush hour traffic
1997 BMW 328i M3 Clone. I love how fast it is and would like to upgrade the engine when I have the finances to do so.
Learning to drive a stick was extremely intimidating at first. My older brother promises that I did very well and now he tells me that I drive as he expected I...
shift. All the cars I've owned have been stick. Looking to buy a new one now, and it'll be stick. I hate driving automatics, it feels so awkward and my left foot gets confused. How some people never learn I just don't understand.
