lol, tractors usually have quite extensive gearboxs. I also drive a John Deere 3010 I think it is. 8 forward speeds and 2 or 3 reverse speeds...

The shifter is that little lever on the right, it's really strange to use. Top speed is about 18-20mph.

I had a Supra MKIII 3.0 turbo manual. That and my Omega Estate MV6 Auto were the best cars i've owned.

A nice second hand Supra is pretty cheap right now and quite reliable. Just watch out for the rear arches and gaskets.

I was gonna go for a MKIIII in a years time but i'm liking the Soarer's right now.

I think everyone should learn how to drive a manual car, it takes some skill to learn how to do it properly. Like doing hill starts and heel/toe footwork. It's good for you to learn in case you ever have to drive one some day.

I drive an Automatic truck atm, However I am fully capable of driving a manual. The good old days I miss with the old manual muscle car...Manuals certainly are fun.

I drive a manual '84 Camaro Z-28. It adds to the fun of cruising around town, but I'd get sick of it if my daily driver ('03 Saab 9-5 2.3t) was a manual. I find it harder to concentrate on my driving with a manual.
