    Eh. All I've driven is automatic. I figure, when the time is right (aka - when it's time to buy that mid-life-crisis-solving, penis-compensating sports car with a V8) then I'll learn to drive stick.

    Can't drive a manual?!? GAH! Man, it is shame that schools no longer have driver's education. Even without it in my highschool, my Mom taught me how to drive an automatic. I learned how to drive a stick with Gran Turismo AND my Mom. I'm pretty good with timing, but still have an issue with braking on an incline. Standards are not hard, they just require timing and patience. My next car will likely be a standard and if I have a choice, a RED Honda S2000.

    Ops_was_a_truck: HAHA! Never had a V8. my previous car was a 1996 Chevy Beretta with the V6 motor . the transmission started slipping Monday night as i drove home...Decided to get rid of the car before the transmission took a crap!

    Well, they DO! Real men drive sticks on the big rigs, as do real women. Only problem is they have problems with hemorroids from sitting all the time. It's a real shitty problem to have.

    My Tundra had a V8, but it had a four speed automatic. Okay, but not the best match. The five speed that later came out REALLY helped the engine out. Vroom, VROOM! My Ridgeline has a five speed, V6 engine. Okay, but not a true speed demon like the Tundra. Ah, V8 engines. NOTHING beats the sound of a V8 engine with the right exhaust and setup, or a V-Twin engine on a Harley Davidson.

    So, manual = hemmorhoids. Got it. I will take that as a clue and drive automatic 'till the day I die. :D 

    Honestly, 3 people have tried to teach me how to drive Automatic. I've "learned" on the following cars:

    --1987 Porsche 911
    --1972 Pontiac Firebird
    --1999 Toyota 4-Runner

    ...and I've never really picked it up. The way I figure, the "drive" slot makes the car drive, and the gas pedal makes it go faster. Good enough for me.

    NO, MANUAL doesn't mean hemmorhoids. Long times sitting down driving does. A manual transmission and the right engine are a beautiful thing to a car guy. It's like a hot sexy woman (even though I'm a virgin, I'm borrowing a friend's metaphor). A car and a woman have their own gears when making love, or racing. Find the right speed and gear, and you'll both feel like you're going 105!
