    I was just wondering what car you learned how to drive a manual trans. My friend says I suck at driving a manual but I was learning on a thunderbird SC (RWD, 300hp,342Tq) He learned on a civic <_< . I eventually got the hang of it after about a week (kinda still jerky) then sold the car to buy my sol. I just think it would of been a lot easier to learn on a small car the was FWD and less hp. Everytime I had to get on the gas i would spin tire then go a little sideways :eek: . not the funnest thing to do when your learning.

    I learned on my 1991 Geo Metro, my mom dropped it off at my work one day and said drive it home or walk. I drove it home, which was the first time I drove a manual on the streets.

    I continued learning on my 1992 Ford Escort GT, and I'm still continuing on my 2000 Civic Si. :)

    Now I refuse to drive an automatic. I do have a few exceptions of cars though that I would drive as automatics. :)

    first drove it on a saturn...You guys won't beleive me but i never had a teacher and i drove it "perfect" the first time. It had to be the smoothest I've ever driven stick, shiftin at 3200 each time (shift indicator), and slowly releasing the clutch pedal while depressing the trhottle a little bit.

    Completly different story with my 82 F-100, i couldnt drive that thing for shit, i was revvin that fucker to 4000 and slowly releasing the clutch before i could get it to move (this was 3 years later BTW)

    worked at a detail shop in denver for years one day the boss and I went to pick up a toyota truck at len lyall chevy and he wanted a few beers so after the bar he puts me in the driver seat and is real nice until the first hill....he makes me hold it through a red w/out using the brakes,bumped the car behind me super soft [he didnt get out] once and learned more about engagement than I would have imagined was possible in two minutes......the rest of the drive was an absolute breeze and it convinced me someday that is how I will teach mine....no traffic of course.
