I would prefer to drive a stick shift. Actually I was just talking about how sweet it would be if my Bonne was a standard! I learned on an old Ford 150, but I soon graduated to the F-body.

I learned to drive on a stick, but it had been about 15 years since I had driven one.........That is up until last week, and I had to drive a girlfriends car home because she had a bit too much to drink, and let'* just say, I need A LOT more practice. I was surprised that she didn't have whiplash after that
