Re: Don't laugh but...
No one is laughing at you, Toothy.
We older guys sometimes take for granted that everyone knows how to use a clutch when coming to a stop. That's because we learned to drive in standard (manual) transmission cars. We need to keep in mind that there are a couple of generations out there who have never driven one and their only experience is with automatic transmissions.
Sort of like asking one of the youngsters how to change channels on the TV without a remote.
Thanks for all the good answers guys. That's why we're here.
