What was the car you learned to drive?

'76 International Scout Traveller.

Not a pic of our actual car but same color and messed up front quarter.
Dad bought this new in '76. This thing was a tank and could go just about anywhere. Hated it when I was 16 and took my test in it in '87. But I really came to love it. It could take me and about 10 of my closest friends lots of places. :eek:Wish I still had it.

66 T Bird Convertible

If you don't count the tractors, I guess it would be my Dad's 1947 Chevy Fleetmaster.

You do realize that there will be those that are going say something to the aspect that most that have posted are as old as dirt?

Not this one, but very similar. We still have it, maybe a restoration project someday. :)

I learned to drive on a custom made car. I was 9 years old and we built a Mini sized car out of a Crosley for me (which was already a tiny car). It was a tiny overhead cam 4 cylinder with three speed trans and air type wheel barrow tires, diamond plate fenders and the original cable brakes! It had no real body, so was more like a mini car with no body.
1959 was a stellar year for me, as I also got a D2 Caterpillar and a Honda step through 50cc motorbike! I was one happy 9 yr old!
