All these cars were easy!
My mum taught me to drive in a 1972 Fiat 500L with 18hp and a non-synchromesh gearbox. Just like the car in which Michael Schumacher learned to drive.

You know we have a good group of people in this forum. Yes we all love our Porsche cars, but at the end of the day we understand it is the experience with family and friends that really matter. Notice how so many of us taught our kids to drive because that is what our parents did. I think we all have good memories learning and having experiences with our loved ones. We have not forgotten our experience and they never will either. Really at the end of the day it is only a bunch of metal, rubber and plastic. We drive these cars for the experience and if we can bring our cherished ones along for the ride, literally, then that just makes it that much better.

Very well said. The events wouldn't be the same if I couldn't take my son along with me (and George).

Petza pics for the win!!

Curious, want to "reteach" my wife and teach my 24 year old daughter how to drive my 70 ss/rs-ls camaro and the 997.
I dont think I'M using my clutch right LOL. At the expense of how much it wears on the clutch for teaching a new stick driver, any thoughts? I mean, i guess, how are you all
teaching them how to feather out the clutch?

thanx

When my daughter first started driving, I taught her to drive a manual as well. She is still driving one 4 years later.
