In my high school years, back when Corvairs were essentially new, a
friend, driving a 1965 Monza with a 110-stick, and I, driving a 1966
Monza with a 110-PG, by coincdence met up at a traffic light one
evening. Without any conversation or deliberation, when the light
turned green we took off! An impromptu drag race.
The two cars were absolutely neck-and-neck... until he had to make
the 1-2 shift. Than put me half a length ahead. When he had to make
the 2-3 shift, I gained the rest of the car length, and won the race
to the next light.
I gained a respect for the PG that night.
(Today I own two PG Corvairs and two manual-shift Corvairs)
