  • Yes - I taught myself at age 13 by driving my cousin's car in the college parking lot near his house.

    I have driven/operated the following vehicles:

    - Cars & trucks
    - Bus (old schoolbus owned by church)
    - Big-Rig (twin stick, 20 forward gears and 4 reverse gears)
    - Motorcycles & Quads
    - Snowmobiles
    - Tractors & Skid steers
    - Forklifts & Sissorlifts
    - Boats & Watercraft
    - Plane (in the air - not take-off or landing)

    So, yeah - there's not a whole lot of drivable equipment that I haven't driven.

    • The driving teacher told me that I am a very good driver. That I am great at knowing what is in front of the car, to the sides of the car and behind the car at all times. He said I have very good control of a car to and knowing where my car is on the road and what other road users are about to do.

  • Yea fuck automatics, boring af

    I first drive a standard in my brother's G37s and then i learned in my subaru and im so glad i did

    Manual is so much better
    I feel in control
    Its fun
    And i feel like a badass shifting through the gears

    I am never buying an automatic car NEVER

  • I learned in my early 20s by test driving stick shifts at the dealership when I was into buying a new car. Salespeople didn't like me grinding the clutch or popping it in order not to stall or roll back on hills into the car behind me.
