I know what you mean. I took Drivers Ed in high school, it got you a discount on insurance and was a credit. I did my in car driving in a VW Rabbit because I wanted to drive Stick. It was a decent little car. I liked the Scirocco when it came out, seemed decent enough although I never owned one. I did have a V6 Passat with 6 speed for a while but it was plagued with electrical problems so I got rid of it.

They were called Rabbit's in Aussie also I think,a Golf over here and some had an extended trunk.
Chap who bought my previous Merc C-class 200 sport had a Golf GTD,he spent a fortune on replacing wiring loom that went through the engine that got contaminated with oil stranding him. It required engine out and strip, so he got rid of it and would only buy a petrol car.

The Rabbit I learned to drive stick on was a 1974 model. Looked like this.

Porsche has done some clever ones. The third one here (I think) is my favorite.
