Every daily driver since 1988, for both the wife and I, have been 5-speeds. Soon-to-be hotrod Nova is an automatic. Go figure that one!

WR is kinda far... my friend tom from california (who got me into muscle) is coming next weekend, so i'm rushing to get my nova back into one piece so we can at least run around and get pulled over just like the good ol' california days :D:D:D

yeah i thought i needed two cams for about 10 minutes, until i realized timing chains only had one cam gear rofl. then i figured out that all the pushrods go to one cam and that 16 lifters ride on the cam and.. well, you get the idea. i didn't know anything about engines at the time haha! did i tell you i got pulled over literally right after getting my permit for doing a burnout in front of a cop??? I WIN!!! :D:D:D

LOL....the first speeding ticket I ever got (1 of only 2) was in my Nova, I had only had it about a month at the time. (this was before I matured and came to the realization that speeds like that only belong on a track)

It was at night and I was doubling the speed limit (some guy in a 5.0 mustang was trying to catch me but he was so far behind me it really couldn't be called a race;) ) when I saw the police go flying by in the other direction and then spin around on the highway to come after me.

Well luckly for me I pulled right over and waited for them to catch up. The cop liked the car , we chatted about it for a while, and the fact I didnt make him chase me so he knocked it down a ton and I got a hugh break on my fine and I didn't loose my licience on the spot. Oh well its all fun and games when your young and dumb...but later after you get more mature you realize just how lucky you were not to have died on those highways back then doing stupid things. :)

yeah i drove pretty stupid once i got behind the wheel but i backed off a ton after that first pull-over. for the remainder of my time in california, i would get pulled over minimum once a week. my worst night was three times in the 2 miles going home from work!

in the valley, being young, shaved head, male, in a loud, rowdy car at 2am is not the best situation. i would get off from work around that time and got pulled over often. this was because there was a huge street racing problem in my area, and i guess i looked like trouble.

i got pulled over right as i left work, pulled over after making the first left into the college campus, then as i made the right turn onto my street, i got pulled over in front of my apartment. fscking nuts!!! the third time i just talked to the officer and i was like, look officer, i'm not trying to cause trouble, i just got off work (pointed to uniform) and i just want to go home, i live right there (pointed across street). he still wrote me up a warning for dim license plate light (hey, i got a non reflective original black plate!) and another warning for excessive exhaust noise.

ridiculous, but i miss it :) i'm suprised i never got to know any by name :eek::eek::eek:

My first car was a manual. I was thrown the keys, and told to go to Kansas City. That was an experience, but I had time to learn on I-35 and I-70. By the weekend I was a pro. Haven't had one since. Company truck was a stick, but little ranger my LONG legs, my knee just didn't like it.

I was looking for a 6spd Camaro/Firebird a while back, but decided on the Nova instead. It's got a PG.

Looks like you made it over as well Dan, welcome to the new site. Lol. Gotta love the sticks, nothing like rowin the gears in a V8 powered machine, or anymachine for that matter, shiftin can make any car feel like a hot rod, even the 1987 turbo sprint i learned to shift in!!! Now that was a fun car....haha

My first car was a 62 chevy biscayne three on the tree. I think everyone should learn to drive a stick first. I taught my 2 sons on a 5 speed camaro.
