Default I deserve better

I worked hard for all of you folks - is this any way to treat an old friend?

Nice. Ted, I grew up learning to drive on a pickup a lot like that with a three speed on the column. That could be fixed up with the right owner : )

Hah! I leaned to drive on an old chevy sedan with 3 on the column. (We'll definitely isolate the geezers here, by finding out whether anyone knows what we mean by "on the column".)

That is an excellent shot. The composition, lighting, and color are all spot on. Well Done!

(And yes, I learned to drive with the manual shift on the column; however we "hip teenagers" at the time called it "3 on the tree." LOL)

Hadn't heard "on the tree" before. One thing was for sure - you couldn't change gears vary quickly with a column shifter.

It was the step before putting gear shift levers on the floor between the front seats. I suppose that wasn't so popular in Britain where everyone drives on the wrong side of the road but most folks are still right-handed, so shifting with your left had was inconvenient and unpopular...
