Look, there's no shame in not knowing everything about cars. I sure don't, and claiming to know everything only proves that you don't. Still, as a discerning owner, enthusiast, or even basic user of automobiles, there are certain things you should absolutely know how to do. No excuses.
Very few things are more satisfying than nailing the perfect shift in a classic H-pattern gearbox, especially when you know that if you do it wrong, bad things can happen. Ouch, that’s a serious money shift! That’s why you never let your friends drive your race car. Unfortunately, the art of using all four limbs to drive a car is becoming a thing of the past. Thanks to ever-increasing terrible traffic, the invention of lifeless, gearless, CVT transmissions, flappy paddle gearboxes being arguably faster than traditional stick shifts, the rise of electric cars with only forward and backward settings, and lazy drivers optioning for automatic gearboxes, you’d think the death of the classic manual transmission is all but assured.
