Subject: "straight drive"
My brother and his girlfriend were visiting this weekend, and she told
me that she was sick of "straight drive" and wanted her next car to be
an automatic. I have never heard this term used to mean standard or
manual transmission. Are any of you familiar with this usage? My
brother's girlfriend is in her 20's and grew up in NW South Carolina
(the Uplands or Upcountry or whatever it's called).
