My first car was a 1963 Herald 1360. No Synchro on 1st, so you either had to stop completely to get into 1st or learn to double de clutch. I learnt fast after bouncing of the "gate" a few times. It also had a "V" shape box, 1st was well off to the left compared to second.
I once had a clutch cable break on a Sierra at Heathrow and after starting in 1st drove back to Putney without the clutch, gearchanging by revs and engine sound, both up gear and down.
Currently in chris m's garage:
2000 Scenic 2.0 16v Monaco, BMW 3 Series, Pug 206
