My first learning experience was a 60s model Ford pickup with 3 in the tree.

My next learning experience was a RHD Iswara Proton with a stick in Malaysia.

Then I learned to drive a Disco 1 with manual in ice and snow up in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Funny thing, I didn't have anyone to learn from. No one showed me how. I had the desire and ambition to learn on my own.

Haha! Ditto. I learned on an '84 944 test drive off a dealer's floor in Berkeley, CA while trying to remember what I leaned while watching Days of Thunder! Needless to say, I got it back in one piece, but didn't buy the car ;-)

I only buy the automatics on the vehicles where it is significantly more expensive to find a manual in the same condition (used diesel pickups). Although you post this on a car forum, so any millennial here will know how to drive stick.
Sportwagen tdi with pano and 6-spd isn't common. I'm sure it is now though lol

Dad tried to teach me in the late 80s on his bronco 2. Taught myself how to drive a stick on my 90.

I taught my exwife on my VW Rabbit diesel on a trip to NYC. By the end of the day she was jockeying for position with the cabbies. That was a trip to remember!

Anyway, my D90 is the first auto I've ever owned. I still have this urge to get a birth year Porsche 930, "the widow maker."
Ha, how funny. I was born in '83 too and I remember playing Oregon Trail on the old Apple IIe in the classroom.

I learned to drive a stick in my '82 Toyota Pickup 4x4, my first car. A friend took me out on the country backroads to teach me, and my friend was a girl. How many 16 y/o girls do you know who can drive a stick? Most the vehicles I've had since then were sticks, including all of them within the last 12 years.
