When I learned to drive a car with manual transmission, it wasn’t a big deal. Most cars on the road in the mid-1950s were outfitted with clutches and gears that had to be manually shifted.

Stay away from automatic transmissions, Dad advised for several years, on the assumption if one went bad it would cost way more than a manual to fix or replace.

Besides, when I was young and driving for good, having “four on the floor” was the dream of every teenaged boy.
