My first car was an automatic, but my second and third were standard shifts.
As a matter of fact, YES! I was glad about it too. None of my friends could drive my car cuz they couldn't do stick.
I have a 1998 F-150 pick-up with a five speed on the floor. A lot of younger drivers today probably wouldn't what the clutch is for.
Manual would seem even more important on a truck.
You're right, lot's of people would not be able to drive your truck.
I learned to drive with an automatic shift, but I can drive a car with a stick shift.
For me it is true. It's what my dad taught me on.
The first car I drove (and used for my license test) was a 1961 Thunderbird automatic, but most of the cars I've owned over the years have had standard transmissions.
No my first was an automatic it was Ford F150 truck. Then I had an automatic jeep that sadly went to the pasture last year with no hopes of returning.
My dad taught me to drive in his '60 Falcon with a "3 on the tree" shifter. Then when I got my first driver license and bought my first car it was a '54 Ford with "3 on the tree" (I paid $85 for it when I bought it in 1962).
I have never driven a car.
Actually no. I may be older than dirt but they did have automatics back. One of my first trucks did have a "three on the tree" shifter. Do yo know what that is? They don't even make them anymore.
Yes. I learned on a three on the tree. The first car I owned was a three on the tree.
