I know a couple about to turn 40, just on the line, lol. They've had a couple manuals, and they always have a carafe of liquid with them.

I'm about to turn 47, and more than half my vehicles have been manual, but I don't make a habit out of giant drink containers. I'd have to stop every 10 miles to piss. But with the washout floor plug removed . . . :unsure:
Hahaha that’s disgusting. I hate manuals, I gave up on them 15 years ago when I was 20. They’re fine in a sports car but to drive everyday? No thanks.

Both my kids (30’s & 40’s) can. But.....that was their only choice if they wanted to practice with pops!
My dad never taught me, we didn’t have manuals as kids. My sister taught me when I was 16 and my first car was a manual, drove it for a few years and said f this and went to to autos lol. I occasionally drive my wife’s manual Cruze but that’s about it nowadays.

No problem clearing any size cups - those of us getting the manual just need to get the right type of shifter lever

Ok, now I understand why over the road truckers shift levers are eye level! Need the room for the 64oz coffee mugs.

thanks for the picture!

Looks like I will be shifting like this when I have over sized cups of water (for the health conscious) in my cup holders
Say what you want, but that guy could finesse a stick in his sleep.

On the topic of manuals and millennials, I asked a millennial to move my car once. Conversation went like this:

Me: "Can you drive a standard?"
Him: "Of course."
Me: "Cool, here's the keys."
Four minutes later he comes back inside.
Him: "I thought you said it was a standard."
Me: "Me, it is."
Him: "No, it's a stick shift."
Everyone in the room that wasn't a millennial:

Road trips just got more interesting. All you need is a funnel and a tube, and you can drive until you run out of gas! ?

To be fair manuals and mellinials dont seem to mix according to the internetz
My millennial sister, her husband, and at least a quarter of their friends drive manuals. For all the same reasons they listen to vinyl and wear vintage clothes; more 'authentic', unique, etc. And it's the easiest way to avoid having freeloader friends ask to borrow your car/truck all the time.

Just remember to squirt the washers once or twice just to eliminate any questions from the car behind you!:cool:

A carafe? Is this allowed to be spoken in the Garden State, @EvlNvrDys ?

I'm sure he does...

This is the kind of testing I need done for the 7MT
So, Marketing Nation has someone who believes they are an animated fairy doing the trail testing?


I missed quoting it, but I can see adding a Driver stick or WRC-style stick for comfort.
