Well motorcycles.....but then a 1975 Datsun B210. Don't laugh. RWD, 90 hp and bicycle tires make for a primo snow drifter and never getting stuck.

W58 Toyota Supra 5-speed when I put it into a sedan to replace the A340E automatic that came in it from the factory. I learned to drive stick after I converted that car to stick.

1960 Willys jeep pickup, 3 speed on the floor. One of my favorite pointers came from an African American laborer who worked for the family business and taught me how to shift: Mash the clutch in. Loved driving it in the mud.
