    I actually had a valet refuse to let my YJ into his parking lot, he claimed he couldn't do "manual."

    But I also suspected he didn't want it seen next to the beemers and Audis.

    I’m a member of an antique engine club and When I was 14 (two years ago) one of the older gentleman handed me the keys to his ‘56 power wagon and said if I can drive it I can have it. Worst mistake he ever made. :rofl:Before he finished his sentence I was driving off. When I came back he looked at me in aww and asked where I learned to drive manual so young. Then I told him that I grew up building Suzuki samurais with my dad. I ended up giving the keys back because I felt bad:lol:

    I bought a commuter car from Carvana back in January. I wanted a manual trans, bought one and when the youngster arrived with the car and tilted the flatbed delivery truck but he couldn't get it off the truck! I waited 5 minutes and watched him struggle trying to get it off the truck. I walked up and he rolled the window down and said he could not get it into rev, at that point I explained to him that gravity was his friend. I told him to step on the brake and turn the key to release the steering wheel and slowly let off the brake until the car began rolling off the truck I was laughing inside. We closed the deal and I still get a chuckle from all the snowflakes that can't drive s standard trans car.

    I recently bought a Dodge Ram 2500 with a 360 magnum and a 5s manual. When I took it for a test drive the older gentleman looked like his eyes were going to fall out of his head when I was speed shifting to get on the freeway. When I paid him he asked how did you learn to do that ? I kindly said I drive a Willy’s.

    I'm an old guy, I can basically drive anything on the planet. Well, as long as my clutch knee holds out. :coffee:
