Through this Operation Ignite! initiative -- held Friday, July 8 at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, MI -- young drivers between 15 and 20 years old had the chance to celebrate Collector Car Appreciation Day behind the wheel of some of the sweetest classics to learn to drive a manual transmission. The day started with a short classroom session, in which more than 30 young adults learned the basics of how a clutch and transmission work. Then the fun really started as participants headed out to the closed course and received one-on-one driver training from classic car owners.
