How to Drive a Stick Shift
Can you drive a stick shift? It is a question people don’t ask as often as they used to, but it is still something you might hear one of these days. You can turn away sheepishly and pretend that you didn’t understand the question. Or you can learn how to drive a stick shift and become the envy of your friends and family.
