For those who have learned how to drive a stick shift, how long did it take for you to get used to it? I'm going to have to learn now since our car is a stick but I can barely understand mechanics!
Any advice? Ha, I'll probably stall the darn thing a million times before I get good at it. At hubby's an expert at driving it... not explaining it though.
I might as well ask this too, anybody got a funny story or two when they first started driving a stick shift car?
I miss mine sometimes. It would go anywhere, and it always started. I bought it brand new in 1990 and sold it in 2003. It was rusting away, unfortunately.
I have a 6-speed Mini Cooper now and to say I love my car is an understatement. I never want any other kind of car. Ever. It is the funnest and best car in the world!
