But ... with the bad knee it became too painful to use the clutch to change gears
so it's been a decade, I'll bet, since I last drove a manual.
What are cozies? Most people learn to drive on a manual car so the standard licence allows you to drive both. However if you've learnt on an automatic then the licence i think specifies that you can only drive automatic cars. Automatic cars are becoming more popular now though so it's not a huge problem though previously you were quite limited in your choice of cars if you only drive automatics.

Cozies are mystery books, with a woman as an amateur sleuth, generally living
in a small village. "Gentle" books, no graphic violence, profanity, or explicit sex.
Fast paced, twists and turns, lots of puzzle solving. Or ... brains over brawn.
I've learned a lot about the UK from reading English authors.

Same in Australia. But with the new logbook system most kids can only get experience in an auto (coz that's what their parents have) which is a shame.

I can't understand auto 4wds. Where is the fun in that!

Re: Manual or Automatic

Manual all the way. No special license needed in the states, but I learned on a 5 speed and given the choice I'll always pick the manual.
