re: Simple animation showing how a clutch works
I drove manual cars until I moved to an area with massive traffic where automatic is easier. But I just rebuilt my BMW, so I'll cruise this summer on the Pacific coast.

re: Simple animation showing how a clutch works
Where can a grown man go nowadays to learn how to drive a standard without judgement?

Do you have access to a standard? If so, a school parking lot in the summer. That's where I learned. But I was also 15 at the time.

Any male over the age of 15 should already know all this.

re: Simple animation showing how a clutch works
the new manuals have a brake hold feature (at least the ones i've driven) so it takes the fun out of driving on hills

re: Simple animation showing how a clutch works
I haven't driven a new manual. My third car is a 30 year old BMW I rebuilt myself. I'll have to try a new manual one of these days.

I love it. I am one of the few people in my generation that knows how to drive stick. Hell, probably one of the very few that enjoys driving manual as well.

My dad calls stick shift cars "Anti theft for millenials"

Third vehicle is a five speed sequential with an anti stall installed.

With a rear locker, it will humble anyone not familiar with it

The first time I pulled into traffic and stalled it, I nearly pissed myself

If it is anything like my phone, it was skipping the disengagement point the first 100 times it ran

The car we had for drivers ed was a three on the tree. There was a steep hill that the instructor would take us to and he would put a traffic cone behind the rear bumper. You had to heel and toe it 3X without knocking the cone over before you could pass his class. Those poor cars took a beating.
