When I was 18 (1978) I worked for a Datsun Dealership. I learned to drive a stick, on a 1976 Datsun 510 Wagon.
Weird how I remember that like yesterday, but cannot remember what I had for breakfast. :-D. They also had a Ford Bronco with I think a 302 V-8, it was a manual column shift.
That was a lot of fun to drive.
