Great post NUROADSIR, you are teaching your girls a very under-appreciated skill by kids standards today. My dad insisted that all his children would have a "stick" car as their first. We had a huge hill down the steet from our house and he made us start and stop over and over in the middle of the hill. So many young-adults today don't know how to drive a stick. I also believe that everyone should have to take their driving test in a "stick" car. We'd have much better drivers on the road if we did.
