Aloha Friday: Stick or Automatic?

Aloha Friday
This Weeks Question:
Do you know how to drive a stick (manual transmission)? Do you currently drive a stick or automatic? Which do you prefer?

My Answer:
I learned how to drive on a stick and my first two cars were sticks. But my last two have been automatics, which I prefer. It's been a long time since I have driven a stick, but it's like riding a bike, you never forget.

Answer my question in a comment. Leave a link to your "Aloha Friday" post in your comment and Ill be sure to stop by and answer your question!
Aloha Friday began at An Island Life, In Hawaii, Friday is the day to relax and take it easy. So, here is an easy and fun post to start the weekend!

  1. Hey there!
    It's been so long! I just switched over to wordpress and am having a little trouble getting my account with all my email subscriptions to work. :( So I've been missing a bunch of people's posts. I hope things are going well on the island, with the family, and everything else. Happy friday!

  2. I drive an automatic and do not know how to drive a stick. My husband tried to teach me once when we were teenagers but I was awful.

  3. Automatic only although I used to drive a dirt bike when I was a kid that had to be shifted by foot if that counts :)

  4. I started on automatic, learned the stick and now back to an automatic. I really like them both.

  5. Whoops- sorry about the above.

    I'm kind of surprised they still make manual's actually.

    Have a great Friday!

  6. I know how to drive both although when I was learning how to drive a stick I blew the transmission, LOL.

  7. I don't know how to drive a stick. I would LOVE to learn! My BF promisses to teach me.
    I drive an automatic now.

  8. My family tried to teach me on a stick, it's all my parents had. Needless to say, my parents felt they didn't want to replace the clutch and decided to enroll me a driving class where they use automatics!
    I never really learned how to drive stick, but I probably would be more patient this time around. HAHA.

  9. I drive an automatic, but prefer a stick

  10. I first learned to drive on a stick. Now I have an automatic that is in sad need of repair.

  11. Like you, I learned on a stick - and my first 2 car were sticks...all subsequent ones were/are automatic which I prefer for the non-distraction mode when there are kids in the car, but I do miss driving a stick! :)

  12. I learned and drove a stick until I was in my 30's but living in an urban area with stop and go traffic, forget it.

  13. Giving you some bloggy love.. Funny my first 3 cars were sticks - 76 Datsun B210 Honeybee, 82 Toyota Tercel, and 86 Nissan Pulsar... I loved driving that stick.... Oh how miss it...
