    IMO, and from what I know only Americans older than 55 can easily drive a manual. I have taught all 5 of my grandchildren how to drive a manual but not a 3 on the tree because I could not find on to teach them in.

    Nope. The majority of licensed drivers in the United States have never driven a car with a manual transmission.

    When I was a teenager and going for my lic., I was the only one in my class that signed up for a standard transmission course.

    These days, very few driving schools even offer a manual transmission course option and this shows in the new car sales with manual transmission. In the US, that percentage rate is below 4% and it's falling. So while there would certainly can be a few people that can/have driven a stick in the past but just choose not to today, the number of American that can operate a standard is definitely in the minority.
