One girl was excited to get to learn to drive a "boy" car. She said automatics were "girl" cars and sticks were "boy cars".

Kinda like in HS, you could own one but you better be able to drive a stick. ;D

 Evening all.

Old Man Winter showed back up and decided to grace us with 6” of new white stuff. Interstate is a mess, but that’s normal. ::)

I learned stick in a 1994 Ford Ranger at 14 or 15, then went to a 2005 Subaru Outback. These days I’m pretty well relegated to work trucks, mostly 6, 10 and 18 speeds. I also have a bit of time in a twin stick Kenworth 8)

I learned to drive a stick in my dad's 1970 Dodge 1 ton pickup with a crew cab and duel rear wheels.

First car was a Karmann Ghia, floor shift. Second car was a Studebaker Lark, 4 on the column.

I taught my wife to drive on a floor shift Datsun pick-up. She'd only driven automatics up until then.

Well, I got to work and my sub was already there, seems the supervisor had thought I wanted to take today off in exchange for working last Saturday. So I thought-that's a great idea! So here I am at home, on a sunny, mid 40's Friday.

When I was in the Army, as a motor pool mechanic, they had me teach some of the drivers how to drive a stick. There was a big gravel parking lot out behind motor pool row, took them out there in an M-151 Jeep. Some of them had grown up in the city, and never even learned to drive before Uncle Sam wanted them to. One girl was excited to get to learn to drive a "boy" car. She said automatics were "girl" cars and sticks were "boy cars".

I took my Drivers test in 1956 in my Dad's van. He did not own a car at that time. It had a 4-speed floor shift but you only used the top three gears. No directionals so you had to hand signal.

Come on Del
I'll bet your pasture didn't have 3 ft diameter bunkers planted around it.  Try an evade all those critters in your attempt to raise,lower and tilt the plow at the same time.  Reminds me of the Kids "one legged man in a butt kicking contest".  I did say I survived, as well as the truck and a large portion of the light bases.

We learned to drive a stick before we were allowed to touch a slush box.   ::)   By 16 if you couldn't drive a stick shift you were required to squat when you peed.  LOL that will get you in trouble for saying it today.  ::)

Completed a little "smithing" for the LGS yesterday on a Remington 7400.
The gun had been stored, 14 years in a closet.
It needed a detail cleaning, and the stock finish at the butt plate was munged up from oil draining down.
Finish that and the guy wanted to buy and have a scope mounted. I did so and bore sighted it.

I get little projects like that from time to time, adds "alms" to my Gun a holic fund.

45 this morning, Haircut for a photo, because I have to renew my CCW permit, and they require a current mug shot.
