Default For those whop can drive a stickshift.......

what did you learn to drive it on........

Personally I "learned" to drive a stick shift on a 66 Frod Econoline van with a 200 6 cyl and three on'da tree!! The first thing I ever DROVE though was my uncle's 67 corvette convertible 427/m22 car. Always loved the whine of an m22 rock crusher trans since those days!!

Lets here it from all the car/trucks nuts!!

At the age of 15...a 1954 Pontiac 6 cylinder, 3 speed on the column. Was 3 miles from the house, looked over to my Mother using the gas and clutch, and asked her if that was hard to do. Driving/gas/shifting all at the same time. She pulled over to the side of the road and said....you drive us home. Took my drivers license test in that car.
