Lots of Falcons in that list.

Well, i was "taught" to drive at age nine, in a damp pasture, in what would years later become my first car, the family handmedown 1965 VW beetle, approximately 40hp. I will miss that thing until i die.

Learned to drive at age 7 on an Allis Chalmers WD. Had to jump on the crank to start it. Went from that to a '52 Ford F1 pickup, starter button on the floor. Could barely reach it, had a heck of a time pushing the clutch in far enough to disengage.

The car I WANTED to learn to drive on was my Dad's 57 Studebaker Golden Hawk - but he threatened to kill me if I even looked at it longingly...

High school friend of mine used to have one. We called it the little red roller-skate

I learned to drive in a 1965 Buick Wildcat. That thing was a beast. I was a tiny teenager, 4'11" and about 100 lbs. Everyone laughed at me in that HUGE car.
