I learned on my dad's f-150. Straight 6, Mazda tranny. It had been so long that when I bought my Mustang I had my doubts about buying because I sucked so bad at driving it lol

I learned on a 98 mustang then I learned to drive a racing transmission on a 850hp dirt late model. Everything I have owned has been a manual.

I had a 250cc 4 wheeler when I was 14. Took someone a few days and a lot of practice to get shifting gears on that right, but when I was 17 and got my first car, a 5 speed Dodge Colt turbo, it was a simple transition from ATV to car.

+1 I loved that car! I eventually blew the engine racing and then wasted multitudes of money on a backyard mechanic who couldn't figure out how to put the new engine in. Ended up scraping the whole thing.

I honestly just taught myself a few days ago. I bought a 97 gt and had only driven my dads 06 gt with a stage 2 clutch and struggled with it ( I was popping the clutch) that was about a year and a half ago and I had time to think about what I was doing wrong and these past few days I've only stalled 3 times and today I was smooth and am perfecting my technique. Just take it slow and don't rush it and the pieces should fall together
