Sure. Of course you won't get into to much trouble with it, seeing as it has NO ENGINE OR TRANSMISSION yet! I don't know maybe that's a good thing...no tickets and no accidents.

I refuse to learn how to work a stick when I am used to an "auto".

if you are using traction control, the computer is in control, not you....plus the traction control allows you to sit back and go slow and safe, ie boring!

AJ,
Sorry to hear about the vet, No injury to you and parts can be replaced.
Looking forward to the end result.
Take care
