YES! and I miss it :frowning: meh… at least I still have to shift my bike. They haven’t taken that away from me yet!

I’ve never owned anything else. If/when I can no longer drive a stick - or they have completely disappeared, as is now slowly occurring – I will no longer care to drive at all.

Three cars and two motorcycles between my wife and I and not an automatic in sight.

(And a whole 5.15 liters of displacement between them all)

I could if I had to, but my knee would hurt.

All of these responses tell me is that you’re all old.

Yes, and I highly suggest it, as there is NO better auto theft deterrent! I swore I’d never own a car that wasn’t stick, but that changed when the wife and I started multiplying and our range of options disappeared. I do miss driving stick, greatly. Flappy paddles doesn’t count btw.

The Witch's Castle – Portland, Oregon - Atlas Obscura

Are you saying that building (or what’s left of it) would want to drive one of the sticks that surround it?

ALL OF THESE RESPONSES…

Nah I’m almost old myself, I didn’t own my first automatic until a couple years ago.

Are you familiar with this particular building?

No, but now I want to go there.

I wish electric vehicles would add a stick shifter, so I can feel in control. :wink:

Only thing to drive. Taught my daughter too.

I’m not old, but I was told I can’t be a racecar driver if I can’t drive a stick shift. It then translated to me being a better rider than at least half the boys :relieved: team GSXR :motorcycle:

All my kids are learning to drive stick on both an old VW (easy) and a '65 F-100 (harder).
