ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -Two carjackers gave up trying to steal a 2007 Nissan when they discovered that the car was a stick shift.

The St. Petersburg Times reports that a man and his girlfriend were leaving his workplace early Friday morning when two men pulled a handgun.

The assailants said if the couple didn't get out of the car, they would shoot.

The men then jumped into the car and started it, but didn't get far.

Police say the carjackers couldn't drive stick, so they gave up and ran away.

Authorities are investigating.
