dvdneal brought to mind something recently - folks don't drive stick shifts anymore. Heck, they pretty much don't even make 'em anymore. I doubt they even deal with teaching it in drivers ed these days.
I learned to drive a stick with my father's Volvo and had many a "bucking bronco" experience in the school parking lot popping clutches. They also had stick shift vehicles when I took drivers ed - (AMC/Renault Le Cars!) . Nobody liked driving those (I can only surmise the young lady depicted in the ad is trying to dive out of the vehicle head first).
For me, the "fun" in driving a stick shift pretty much vanished years ago. It was fun for a time when I had a stick shift Jeep CJ-5 and Mazda RX-7 but after the first few thousand miles the charms of double clutching into high speed turns or downshifting while descending steeper grades wore off and quickly became replaced by the ho-hum factor. These days I would frankly rather drive an automatic than a stick.
When was the last time you drove a stick shift car? (wait for the poll)
