Auto Argument Zone

Last week, we sold our Big Truck to a friend, one of my parents' neighbors, a landscaper in urgent need of some four-wheel drive. Today, we bought a 2007 Ford Focus...manual transmission. Neither Noah nor I were ever taught how to drive stick.

I'm not ready to talk about it.

Sounds like some interesting blog video material may be generated.

Best of luck. I have repressed the memories of trying to learn how to drive stick.

I could probably help you out. I not only learned on a stick, I learned on a stick with manual CLUTCH. Boo-yah! ;)

Oh. My dear heaven.

umm well look at the bright side - you aren't going to learn how to drive stick on a steep hill in downtown seattle with some jerk about two inches away from your bumper while you're on the verge of tears & your former ex is yelling instructions at you....

Slamdunk—You might be right.

Danielle—The scariest part is having to think while also driving.

Costume Diva—If I can get over my fear of humiliation, maybe.

L3—Yet another reason why you deserve oodles of praise.

Lish—Heaven was called upon several times.

stephanie—I wouldn't even try under those circumstances.

I can say without question that I am the worst driver of manual-transmission cars that exists.

I wish you all the luck in the world. May we not be related at any point on our family trees.
