Not true!

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.
