    If you've never driven manual, Asheville is gonna teach you where the catch point on the clutch is pretty quickly.

    Three of my nephews learned to drive in a VW Bus. They weren't allowed to drive by themselves until they could stop on Hayward's Hill and re-start without rolling back. Good skill to have.

    Come on matty! You can do this!

    I remember teaching son and and daughter of weezie how to drive a stick. Much hilarity and shaming abuse was piled upon their delicate souls.

    Shall I head down your way?

    I learned to drive a clutch in the mountains of NC... Both the clutch and I survived.

    Barely.

    If so, I can’t imagine why.



    Sortarelated, Camper van Beethoven has one of my favorite lines — “take the hands off the clock, we’re gonna be here . . . a while”

    Yes, because sometimes that clock tellsyou how much time is left in the game. That's why you have to watch until the end.

    Yep, the stick shift is not for me. Can't wait to get the title in the mail in a few weeks so I can get rid of it

    It wasn't for me either but I was in a country with few to no auto trans cars. So, I had to get used to it...

    I'm currently driving a manual. Well, not currently.
    Currently, I'm typing on a keyboard while sitting at my desk.
    But I drove to work in a manual transmission automobile.

    It has been 10 years or so since I gave up my manual tranmission. I don't reach for the clutch very often now but I do still miss it.
