Teens learn to drive stick on classic cars

Post by Standardshifter »

Great video and story on Hagerty Insurance's Driving Experience. Teens get to drive classic cars with manuals.

"Maybe they’re a little bit jerky trying to learn how to drive a car with a standard transmission. By the end of the classroom, they are pros"

Now if we could just get more teens to take this course. Nice to see one of them driving the 3 speed on the column in the old 1950 Ford.
