I just want to let it be known that I learned how to drive a stick while I was still in high school.
I actually prefer driving a standard transmission car.
Everyone should learn . . . though, I don't think they even make them anymore, do they?
You can still get them. They're mostly reserved to sports cars now though. I test-drove a station wagon with a stick a few years ago when there were still station wagons. ;)
Ah, station wagons. I recall spending two weeks one summer in a station wagon on a family vacation. Good times.
