    Good story. Unlike you, I have never had an automatic. The first stick I drove was a Ford 8N tractor in 1965 at the age of 12. Drove my dad's 289 4-spd Mustang a year later.

    Congratulations on the car, especially on the all cash purchase!

    It's good to see people still wanting to learn how to drive manual. I was kind of hoping your video was of your reaction to receiving the car. I don't think we have enough of those videos.

    That's a good goal - definitely a lot smarter financially than buying a car.

    Congrats on the GT350.
