So, for a Model T the instruction to "Descend in Second Gear" means to fly down in high, right? After all, 2nd gear in a T is high.
How about both "EARS" up high gear and hang on tight!

Henry P, Depends upon whether you are counting up or counting down?
However, usually 1st, 2nd, and 3rd are counted up.
Read carefully, and drive to enjoy! W2
