Opportunity Lost

by William Jackson on 2004-08-06

I had the opportunity to drive a BMW Z3. Unfortunately, it was a stick. This wouldnʼt have been a problem for me normally, but it was a touchy stick. The car stalled without a sound. There was no sound! There wasnʼt even any movement. I put it in gear, let up on the clutch the tiniest bit, blinked, and the engine wasnʼt running. I stalled it three times without pulling away. I couldnʼt drive it.
