    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 :rolleyes: 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.

    Lots of Falcons in that list. :eek:

    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.:)

    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.
