Y’all. I did it. I drove the new Bug! I’ve been bee-boppin’ around town all evening with my excellent coach Ben at my side making sure I don’t get in a sticky situation.. like, say, stopped on a steep hill. I popped the clutch once and it slipped out of second in the beginning, but after that it was smooth sailing. I totally impressed Emily and Josh who rode with us. Just ask them. I can drive a stick shift! Thanks Daddy and Ben!
