Younger generation w/standard shifts

Post by Stelcom66 »

My 2007 truck passed emissions today. I asked the kid doing the test (not seriously) if he could drive a stick - was impressed that he answered he drives one every day. I said 'Cool - you're among the very few who do every day'. Good to see someone that's the age of my kids or younger have an interest in standard transmissions.

Car people - the ones actually interested in cars, not looking cool - will almost always have at least a passing awareness of how to drive a manual if they've been in the culture for a while
