I started learning in high school on friends' 1980-somethings back in the late 90's. I really didn't get it until I bought a new WRX in 2004 to use as a daily though. Since then, I've had a number of manuals, daily driving them for years, and still have a manual that is not daily driven. I also greatly prefer a manual over an automatic.

An old tractor when I was 8. Not sure if it's entirely sure. I've only driven a manual once after that, but it wasn't too difficult, so I guess it isn't all that different. Soon I shall have a manual again. Soon....

1990s F350 dually. I was on a fence building crew, and the boss said take the F350 down to the tractor shop and get new bars and chains for the stihl saws. I had driven tractors quite a bit, so the F350 diesel wasn't that bad. It was difficult to stall the 7.3L powerstroke, so it kind of ruined me going forward.

An ex girlfriend of mine actually taught me on a Hyundai Accent in my early 20's lol.

Haven't looked back since, every car has been manual except for the E60 M5 I had before, being SMG.

It wasn't until I was 21. It was a Nissan Versa that I had to learn to drive on the way to work in heavy traffic. You learn quick after being honked at for stalling the first couple times.

Learned at 10 in my grandfather's S10, shifting from the passenger side. Kept screwing up first and third so that was sidelined for a while, then I learned in a muscle car with a cammed 350. Clutch control was the name of the game.

I learned on dirtbikes in the early 1970's before I was old enough to drive. But the first car I drove with a manual was a 1966 Chevy II. The dirt bike experience wasn't totally useless. I understood the relationship between the clutch and starting/shifting.

Learned to drive stick on my cousin's 2002 WRX wagon, although it has been sitting for about half a year now. He's moving out of state though and I will be taking possession of it this weekend and am trying to revive it to its former glory!

84 Ford Ranger. I had to take the test in it too. I started learning around 12-13 when my father let me drive back and forth in the driveway to get a feel for the clutch.
