I did once, and after taking a gravel corner at 50K in Darcy's red Ford ranger, Darcy thought he'd drive and then we bought automatics!

I have tried learning a few times on DH's old cars. He got a brand new car a few months ago and now he won't even let me try to learn on it anymore because it's his baby. I think he wishes that I don't learn how to drive a 5 speed though because otherwise I'd be driving his car around and not mine. Crazy guy

Absolutely! My dad bought me a vehicle with a standard transmission for my 16th birthday. I had to use my sister's car for my driver's test because I didn't know how to drive stick yet, but I learned quickly so I could drive my new car I used to race cars for my dad too (he owned Firestone stores and sponsored races), and those were always standard.

Yup - I can drive a standard. I had to learn when we bought our jeep a while back. I loved it once I got the hang of it. I am out of practice now that we no longer have that vehicle, but I am sure I could manage just fine if I needed to.

Yup, and I love it! We'll probably get a more "family" car in the summer, but for now I'm still loving my 2 door standard!

Nope, I tried once...made it from 1st to second fine, skipped 3rd somehow, went straight into 5th, stalled it at the bottom of a hill and that was it for me. Never tried again

Yes, all I ever owned was manual until Kirk and I bought new... I prefer manual transmissions.

Yep. Sticks are soooooo much more fun to drive than automatics.
