My car was a '79 Honda Civic hatchback. It was a stick shift and even had a choke! lol. I refused to get my license until I could do it with that car. So, after much practice, I finally did it. It had wood grain gear shift and stearing wheel and the interior panels were still steel so I had a ton of magnets everywhere.
I also had a bumper sticker that said "don't tailgate me or i'll flick a booger on your windsheild" hahahahaha.
Oh the best part is that it was banana yellow.
