This program is the best way to save the manual transmission from extinction


Classic car insurance provider, Hagerty has come up with the greatest new driver experience ever. According to Road and Track, Hagerty wants to teach teen drivers the ever disappearing art of driving a manual transmission.

And they are doing it with awesome vintage cars! No Toyota Tercels and Dodge Neons at this driving school. Cars are loaned to the seminar and in addition to the various classics seen in the video, Road and Track notes that a 1928 Packard Phaeton, a 1950 Willys Jeepster, and a 1962 Aston Martin DB4  have been included in the past.

Also covered is basic maintenance to make sure these teen's first cars last long enough to become classics themselves. There will be seminars in Colorado, Michigan, Arizona, and Texas, so check to see if there is one near you.
