Default I'm Happy

One of my friends bought a 91 Eagle Talon 5 speed manual the other day. Today he came over and tought me how to drive it. I thought it was going to be really difficult to drive but i got the hang of it really quick. I stalled it the first two times i took off, but after that never stalled it but taking off was pretty rough. But after a little practice i got pretty good. I'm excited, i finally know how to drive a manual transmission. It was a lot eaiser then i thought it was going to be.
Just thought i would share the good news.

When I bought my New 93 Ranger (had a 5 speed manual) the salesman did a double take when I told him I had never drove a manual before - did have my dad drive it off the lot I was worried about hitting something, but by the end of the day I was driving it everywhere.

ooo, now you can go to car lots and watch the salesman flounder when you ask him about having anything with a manual transmission
