Do you drive an automatic or standard? Which do you prefer? I currently drive an automatic because I can't drive stick. Since I'm a brand, shiny new driver with just a permit, I'm nervous enough with remembering to go the speed limit, remembering to push the blinker lever down to turn my left blinker on, and trying not to freak out every time I see a cop. I don't think I could handle clutching along with that. Since I one day hope to own a Mustang, I will learn how to drive stick on day, just once I'm a more experienced and much less nervous driver.
