LOL I cant believe thier are younger guys who never drove a stick. Everything in life is automatic these days... And both of ya aint allowed near my 6 speed Ram 3500. But i'll let ya pratice in my Ford 150 4x4... if it ever runs again.

You haven't driven stick until you've been at the wheel of a 1970s Kenworth cab-over semi

I can drive stick, but I tend to screw up downshifting.

Well, like Toasty said, I'm embarrassed to say that I do not know how to drive a stick. However, I can master the 1-2 shift, that'* it. I can't do the clutch take-off. I kept bogging the motor, letting it out too fast, or letting it out too fast and giving too much gas I'm going to try to learn soon. There'* a certain car that I dream of having and it has to be a stick.
