Awesome article - not many people talk about this. My whole family drives manual. It's always a good laugh when the older members try pressing down on the break in an automatic forgetting they don't have to shift.

My mum taught me one rule - drive it like you stole it - it takes the edge off of shifting too gently and stalling out.

My favorite thing to do is see how fast I can take a corner in 3rd. That and the track.

Great article. Brought back memories.

Great article Megan, I can so relate since I had to teach 2 teenage boys how to drive sticks, a "must" in my house. 1 can do it with his eyes closed, the other is still learning how.  But girl if you can master a Muncie 4-SPD in an early Camaro you can master any car.

Man I love that car!
