My first car was a 76 (I think) VW Rabbit with a 4 speed MT. Talk about hard knocks learning how to drive a manual. The shifter gates on that car were wacky, 1st and 3rd were so close together in feel and actual proximity that for a long while as I was trying to learn starting I kept putting it into 3rd with spectacular results obviously. But once I figured out what I was doing wrong (even my dad couldn't figure out what my problem was because he had no trouble finding the gate) I was off and flying, it really doesn't take too long once you have a little instruction and some open space to try it.
