In the USA, I am a rarity among the millennial peer group. I am not sure why given the most of the rest of the world but driving around the USA I am odd. Why am I odd? I own a vehicle with a manual transmission and I purchased it in June 2015. There is a funny story behind why I drive a manual transmission which I will share at a later date but the gist is that I got my first car at the age of 13 (yep, 13) and was allowed to drive it every day (and no my parents weren’t crazy). Originally, I hated that my car was going to be a manual transmission but now 13 years later, I can’t imagine owning a car that isn’t a manual transmission.
