Do you shift a three speed automatic 1970 vw beetle?

Yes. That car has an "autostick" transmission. It's a three-speed manual gearbox coupled to an "automatic clutch." Basically, there's a very sensitive switch (a "microswitch") under the shifter. When you put your hand on the shifter, it closes the switch and works the clutch. After you shift and let go of the handle, it lets the clutch out and you can drive. Not only do you shift the car, you have to remember not to let your hand rest on the shift'll slow down in a hurry and you won' t know why.
