Anyhow, at the OP.
If you want to learn standard, then like mentioned above, you need to have access to a standard car (duh). One thing I noticed, you can't just try it a couple days and think you know it or like it. You need to drive it for weeks preferably a month or longer before you really get the hang of it and experience all the different obstacles you'd encounter driving in the city etc.
Driving is key! As for getting a standard car...ask around, but a lot of people won't give up a standard car to someone learning...they worry about burned out clutches and screwing the transmission lol.
I was calling the Dealerships and rental ass holes for trying to promote automatics.
My brother used be a mechanic at a honda shop and he over heard a conversation with one of the sales man and a customer and ....
lady: "I love manuals, been driving them since my young days but I'm not sure"
sales: "Will you be letting anyone else drive it?"
lady: "Yes my son will be driving it a couple of times"
Sales: "You're better off getting a automatic because a manual will make your son rev it and hoon in and do burnouts"
Lady: "Yeah you are right, I'll choose a auto."
She walked in thinking about manual came out convinced to get a automatic.
And also Automatics cost more to buy then manuals when brand new so it is good for the salesman.
