My first car I bought was a '95 GT auto. After a year I did a T-5 tranny swap to manual....and learned how to drive it home from the shop in stop in go traffic. I taught my wife how to drive manual on my modded out 89 GT and she somehow broke the clutch collar. I've tried to get her to drive the Shelby but she's reluctant to say the least. I'm not pushing the issue.
