Yup, she has always had a standard. She is way into cars, mostly from her dad.

First car - Mini S
Second - '03 Accord V6 (Greddy cat back, wheels, suspension work)
Now - '05 STi (too many mods to list)

Nope...she is a keeper.

Cooks, cleans, into cars, and wants to go to law school.

I couldn't have asked for more if I had been given the chance.

none of the exs have driven a stick.

I tried teaching one for that whole just incase and she started to learn really well from the start and got scared and was never able to finish. Just glad I never hurt myself skating.

My Fiancee does not trust automatics and refuses to drive them. We have never owned anything else then stick shift cars.

She gave a sales guy the burn of his life when we test drove an RX-8 with the 6-speed auto. I shifted with the paddles on the wheel, of course and he offered to “put it automatic mode, if mam wants to drive it”. She told him that “autos, paddle and what not” was for “little boys to play with” and said that she would drive an RX-8 the day he had one with a proper stick on the lot.

My girl loves the 5-speed. I bought her a super clean auto miata. I have had to buy bolt ons and rims to make her happy. And she still wants a turbo.

She claims she is going to steal my 5-speed when I get the turbo on! Lol
She says the red one is hers, and so is the turbo car. Lol
I told her to finish her degree and buy her own. LOL

saturn dealerships will teach them how to drive a stick if you look like a customer.
My G/F can parallel park and back into places like a mother ******. I think she is better than I am at parking.

My wife knows how to drive a stick; autoxes with me occasionally (she'll atleast go out and watch); can identify cars/models; drives a Honda Pilot and is quick to romp on it if she thinks someone is getting a little frisky at a light.

i taught mine how to drive stick last year so she could take a car from her parents that they couldn't drive...she actually learned faster than I did. An NA miata is an easy car to learn to drive in. On the other hand she HATES cars and my hobby, but tolerates it.

Mine always has! Why would you want one that didn't?

Her first car was a real Mini....... with a really long one!

She has problems bleeding clutches cause it is not hard when she finishes going down and up!

She seems to sleep a lot at Dyno days!
