Default What did you learn to drive on

Here's another useless "what" thread that might be fun. I learned to drive in a 62 Ford Falcon, 4 door, pea green, 4 cylinder, 3 on the tree. It burned more oil than gas but I cherished that car as it granted me FREEDOM!

First motorcycle experience was gained on a 60's Montgomery Wards Riverside 250, 2 stroke. The bottom of the gas cap was the oil measuring cup...

Driver Ed, Late 80's, We had Pinto's or Ford Courier Pick up's all were manual shifter.
Later on in the course, We got road time in Chevy Celebrity's
I took a motorcycle course as well, But I dont remember what it was in Driver Ed, However I rmember learning back when I was about 10 years old on some sort of scooter that resembled a bike.

I learned to drive in two vehicles. The first was my Dad's 1973 Orange Ford F150, straight six, 3 on the tree. The second was my Grandma's 73, green VW bug, 4 banger, 4 speed.

The first motorcycle I was on was a YZ125 back in the day.

I'll show my age, I learned to drive on a 1950 Farmall tractor. Went from that to a 1952 Chevy. Wish I had both now.
