My BLUE74
« on: 12 February 2012, 16:35 »
My daughter wanted an "old school" VW and when we went to see it, I wanted to show her how her 'old man' could drive a stick shift during the test-drive.  But when I instinctively put my left foot out to find the clutch pedal, I immediately complained to the seller that the car was "defective" because it was missing a clutch pedal! OOPS, was I embarrassed!
