Reclining in my chair listening to the storm coming in as the wind is picking up. Drinking my usual iced tea and munching on some fries and a burger while Listening to some German Volks Musik win.

Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...

I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.

Re: The last person to post in this thread WINS!

Got my first trail damage on the driver's side rear QP and door while teaching my 11 year old son to drive. He was pulling out of our driveway in reverse and pressed the gas pedal a little too hard and PANIC set in. I pulled the E-brake a little too late as we backed into the woods and hit/broke a few small trees. Nothing too major, just some dents/dented stripes. No paint damage. Lesson learned. My FJ is an automatic. I was 8 years old when I learned to drive my parent's 1983 Toyota Pickup- Manual Transmission.....not a single accident. Growing up is different these days and kids are more retarded than usual. Either that or the "batch" I gave his mother 11 years ago was past it's "Best By..." date.

Keep in mind that we live way out in the sticks.....thankfully.

I win, BTW.

I used to teach people how to drive and how to drive a manual with my old VWs. Simple and easy for them and cheap and easy to replace the clutch if needed. I also taught a couple of people and my nephews in my '90 pickup. I put it in low range out on a dirt road and let them get used to starting off and shifting knowing they couldn't go very fast.

Nice to see you around again.

Yep. Manual trans is so much safer.
My daughter had a similar incident after clipping a curb. Hit the gas instead of the brake and caused all sorts of chaos - 2 lamp posts, a few sign posts, some shrubbery, some more curbs...
That was in the wife's car - only auto in the family car pool. The FJ & Mini are both 6MT.
