Add me to the list that's never seen more that 3 +reverse on a column shift. That story does bring up a memory of when Dad and I were looking for my first car. Went out one day, may have still had a learners permit, or may have just gotten my license, and Dad drove a little used Chevy II I think. I was in the back seat, the salesman was in the front passenger seat. After a little while, Dad asked if I wanted to drive it. I said "YEAH!!" I got in, Dad went to the back seat. Salesman asked if I had ever driven a manual trans before. I said "No" You should have seen the look on his face. I said "Shift pattern is still an H pattern, just on the column, right?" He nodded yes with his chin down about his belt buckle. So I put it in gear and took off. Nice and smooth. Smooth shifts. We got back to the dealership, and he asked if I was kidding him about driving a manual before. I said no, first time. My Dad then chimes in that I had been riding motorcycles for the last 2 years, and understood the clutch-shift-gas sequence. But the look on that buys face was priceless!
