It's obviously "too late" now, but the six speed in these cars is one that I personally believe would be a good one to learn on... Even with the V8. You wouldn't want to be too overzealous with the...

Oh... Gotcha. Yeah, I've never had a cluster gauge that wasn't at least 10% off from actual. I also find that the difference varies and the percentage that it's off of sometimes more like 20%.
