It should be noted that in real life, and in some fictional works by people who know cars, changing gears on a truly old vehicle is a challenge even for people used to driving manuals. This is because of the now-ubiquitous mechanism called "synchromesh", which allows you to change directly from one gear to another, but didn't become common until after World War II.

II. Before that you had to play with the throttle to spin the engine into the right rpms for the next gear, otherwise you'd get grinding gears (not good for the transmission service life) and/or can easily stall the engine.

* In a [[DuelingGames similar vein]], the ''InitialD Arcade Stage'' arcade games have options for both automatic and manual transmissions, although the ''Initial D'' cabinets use an up-down slap shifter instead of a full stick. In both cases, players may find themselves [[DamnYouMuscleMemory reaching with the wrong hand]] as the import-only and export arcade cabinets will often have the shifter on different sides compared to an actual (local market) car.

* Most Soviet cars had gears arranged like the on the left trope picture. Except Zaporozhets, which had trunk swapped with hood and gears positions flipped upside-down. There's a [[UrbanLegend supposedly true story]] about thieves stealing a 15-years old run-down Zaporozhets in Lvov, Ukraine, around the year 2000. The sound of engine kept attracting police, the engine kept stalling and the car kept jumping in random directions. The thieves used 2nd gear instead of 1st and 3rd instead of reverse. Because of their hilarious driving and since the car [[TheAllegedCar cost its owner around $50]] the thieves became the laughing stock and the car got nicknamed "Challenger".
