Ever Lose your Clutch Foot?

Just wondering if I'm just weird or if other people have done it too.

I've been driving around my grandpas 1991 Chevy while I'm waiting for my flares to come in. Yesterday I moved the jeep out from under a tree we were cutting and I couldn't drive it Compared to the clutch in the chevy the clutch in my jeep doesn't exist

So anybody else "lose" their clutch foot?

I drive a 2000 F150 stick and compared to my jeep the truck clutch doesn't exist.

And last time I checked both my legs were attached.

There is a major different between my Mustang and Jeep. I get laughed at when I try to drive the F150 because I try to shift gears and use the clutch (its an automatic)

I've done that. Press down on the brake pretty hard. Gets my attention almost as good as the guy behind me.

Haha! Only done that once and it was in my Firebird. Got honked at by the guy who was behind me, he was pissed. I laughed, he shouldn't have been that close.

Been there done that. I currently have an automatic jeep wrangler but before that I had a 5 speed pt cruiser and before that I had a 5 speed truck so every once in awhile I catch myself trying to clutch or reaching to shift gears...

Had the opportunity to drive a F-350 superduty dually a few years back for my job and I tell you what after using that stiff clutch the pedal in the pt cruiser fell to the floor very easily afterwards.

It's funny when that happens. You put your foot up there and practically stomp the clutch through the floorboard.

It is kind of funny isn't it. Getting out of a vehicle with a stiff clutch and then getting into a vehicle with a very soft clutch and you about put the pedal through the floor. Done it many times. My jeep had a stiff clutch.
