New member from SC!

Postby cwat89 » Sat Feb 01, 2014 11:31 pm

Hello everyone! Came across this forum while searching for manual transmission enthusiasts like myself. I have a 99 SS camaro 6 speed and a 88 s10 (beater truck.. which I call my race truck) :) which is a 5 speed. Been driving a manual daily for about 4 years now and wouldn't have it any other way!

I like that sticker a lot too, considered getting that for my S-10's back window, but instead went with this: (lower right)
