We were all this kid once.
One of the most embarrassing things in life is saying that you can drive stick only to fail when the time comes to actually do it. We all remember that kid in high school, or maybe you were that kid, who talked a big game and then stalled his Civic in the senior lot like it was going out of style. Ah, those were the days. Anyway, this dash cam video stars “that” kid, only this time he’s a detailer’s assistant and the car is a Ford Fiesta ST. The Fiesta ST has a reverse lock; you need to lift it up on the stick in order to back out.
To be fair this is tricky—I myself was thrown by the lock on the Scion (RIP) FR-S—but that’s not the only way this kid fails in his six-speed trial by fire. Check out his struggle to not stall and make sure to watch the clip all the way through to hear the hilarious insult he hurls at the Fiesta ST.
