Yeah, you can drive without a clutch. I did this 95% of the time in my civic, do it 30% of the time in my e36, and 10% of the time in the e30.

I've been told that if you do it perfectly it doesn't wear the transmission, but i have my doubts.

Been there done that.
Its all a matter of synchronizing.
Need to be able to hear the engine speed and feel the gearbox.
On some cars with too many links on the gear selector (look at french cars) its very hard.
On my Nissan i could upshift and downshift any gear once i got the car rolling.
There is no way to do this when you start the car with first from standing for those who dont know!

I've done it many times, I actualy did it for a long time in my truck just because I could. I can shift up and down and pretty much any speed within the usable gear range, even in my e36 and impreza. You need to be light with the shifter or you'll toast the syncros in no time, or bend a shift fork/shifter linkage. It's also hard on the driveline when you don't get it right, mainly the driveline mounts, clutch hub springs (if equipped), the gears themselves, etc.

+1. one more reason why i miss my e30.

without using the clutch you'll probably do more harm to the gears and synchros then spending the money to have it towed and clutch fixed.

Tryed clutchless shifting for the first time in my 90 accord yeserday. It is very easy to do, its all based on feel. I found it real easy to pull out of gear but trying to go back into gear was a little tricky. It seems like a good skill to know how to do or at least to show off to people. .. and for people saying that it ruins the synchros, is that assuming your grinding the gears?? When I was attempting this it felt as if I was using the clutch, gear changes were nice and smooth.

Not worth it unless you do your own work. What shape is the car in? Rust etc?

I can tell that car has lose bolt on left rear rim. The brakes look like never changed. I would walk away even if they offer for free.

Damn, I guess this really shows how much I know about cars =(. Guess I have to be patient and wait until I find something that I know is for it 110%.
