Default New guy in AZ. First Mustang, First Manual, First car.

Well....

I bought a 2011 GT Mustang tonight with the 6 speed. I guess what makes this interesting is it's my first ever car (only ever had Trucks and SUVs before) Also it's a manual.... and I don't know how to drive stick

I've been wanting a car to compliment my current DD 2006 Jeep Wrangler LJ and decided to look at Mustangs this one fit the bill with a great price so I figured I'm only young once, might as well have fun.

Anyway I'm looking forward to getting the hang of driving stick, and looking forward to having some fun.
