treehouse wrote:Hi everyone,

Im new to driving stick and found this forum WOW has it been helpful. My name is Andrew I live in Michigan. Learning how to drive a stick in a michigan winter has been a challenging but i feel like its the best time to learn because of all the different driving conditions ive had my car for about a week now (2011 Scion Tc) pics as soon as i get it washed this weekend and we get a sunny day. :D

Welcome to the forum. I'm glad to see that you found this site to be helpful, for I did too! Winter in Michigan can really be troublesome; I can remember visiting relatives one time in Detroit during the winter when I was a kid, and it was really messed up there.
hahaha

detroit is on the wrong side of the state for "most snow" ... over in holland, by lake MI...now THATs the worst...they get lake effect snow...:(

Yes, there are worse places to drive in Michigan than Detroit. Try driving a camry in 8 inches of snow all the way to Petosky haha that was an interesting trip.

Update: pics in about hour. 8)

And the proper way to describe the location of that Ikea is "the one down the street from White Castle," for the record.

You need to upload the pics into photobucket or another image hosting site, take the url of the image, click the "Img" button above the text box that you write in here, and put the url in between that.

Also, welcome!

Just for future reference, you could have put all of those in one post. Just hit enter to go to the next line and repeat the image process. Nice car! I love the tC in that new concrete gray.
