My first two vehicles were both sticks. 88 F-150 and an 89 Ranger. I love driving manual transmissions. They suck real bad in traffic. I had to drive our Firehawk (6 speed manual) home from South Dakota to MI last Memorial Day weekend through Chicago...stuck in rush hour. Let'* just say my left leg felt like jello after that 4 hour stop and go nightmare.

A manual transmission also gives you more control over the vehicle in wintery driving conditions.

I fisrt learned how to drive a stickshift by that video game that Atari had...no, not "Pole Position", but that other game...the one that actually used a clutch and gearshift. Then I got out in the real world and practiced with my dad'* old "Uncle Jessie Special"...79 Ford Pickup with a three-speed. I love driving manual shifts, and my new Maxx is a good compromise since it has tap-shift...but it aint the same.

I was 14 and an a guy I knew took me to my church parking lot and taught me. Years later when I got a car with manual transmission I had some problems with taking off so my husband took me to a parking lot and taught me how to balance clutch and gas pedal just right. LOL

The pickup I use to tow my camper is a manual transmission.

I just taught my 16 year old son to drive stick, and my wife has always owned cars with stick. You have to at least try it.
