Non-synchronized transmission. I used to shift it on the fly even though it wasn't meant for that so I had to learn to rev match before I even knew what that was or else my step dad would beat my *** if he heard me crunching gears lol. I also used to pop mad wheelies on it with a good set of discs out back. Raise the discs off the ground, pop the clutch and I could walk it across the yard with the front wheels 3-4' in the air. This too would get my *** beat.

'83 Accord and '90 Miata. Mostly the Miata doe. Took my driving exam with it.

When I took driver's ed, my instructor had some sort of Z24 cavalier I think.

1965 Ford Fairlane Sports Coupe with 289 'E' code and limited slip, on the way (5 miles) to take my test in misty rain.
I did get docked 1 point for 'improper clutch use' on an uphill, left turn from a stop, on a wet street.

Don't remember, it was one on the lot at the body shop that I worked at when I was 15. Guys at the shop taught me by driving up and down the road in front of the shop. But I didn't perfect it till my 95 Accord EX Coupe. Loved that car, miss that car.

1991 Ford Ranger 4-banger. That is still worst vehicle I have ever driven. I perfected the stick in my grandfather's old '87 Nissan Hardbody he sold me...still wish I had it.
