In this episode of the Curmudgeon Show, Derek Tam-Scott buys the world's only factory dogleg manual-transmission station wagon!
This episode is all about the dogleg: the transmission layout that automatically makes any car cool.
The discussion starts with the simplest question: What is a dogleg? Why does it exist — and why did it come about in the first place?
The reason is, of course, racing — where the gears of the H pattern are used all the time, but first gear is only used once (to get moving.)
The discussion then continues with every car ever produced with a dogleg manual — 3-speeds, 5-speeds, and 7-speeds.
