1) First car I've "officially driven" that the 'rents know of was ironically the 1999 Grand Am SE that I now own. Had to pick dad up from the Club that night.

2) I was 15 & skeeeered to deal the cops were going to bust my ass with a less than sober pops haha.

Man, what I'd do to be back in the old days and put me back in school lol.

I was actually legal the first time I drove, 16, just got my permit and my dad was with me. I drove his 1994 Buick Park Avenue we just got rid of a few weeks ago.

Here's how it looked the day we got rid of it

When i drove it it was in a lot better condition, no rust at the time and ran like a champ.

I guess it was my grandfather's '69 F-250 pickup... 390 with 3 on the tree and no power steering. Luckily, it was not on public roads, because I was a little $h! and had to look between the dash and steering wheel to drive it. I was prolly 10 years old. He traded it in '75 for another F-250 of the same configuration, except I think that one had the crappy 360 V8.

1986 Cutlass Supreme, age 7 or so...I got to steer for a little bit, no pedals though :AH-HA_wink:

First time actually driving all by myself was probably our '96 Windstar at age 14...that and our school's Plymouth Breeze are what I learned to drive in

My dads 72 Lesabre in 72 steering on his lap.

It woulda been about 75 or so. That woulda made me about 9 years old.

That old LeSabre was a cool car

First time shifting a manual (shifter only), 88 Grand Am, roughly 10 y/o.

First time steering, 86 Sunbird, roughly 11 y/o.

First time actually driving, 88 Safari, roughly 12 y/o on a dirt road in a campground with my dad in the passenger seat.

17 years old, on my father's 1990 Lumina.

1984 F-150 4x4 XLT when I was 8. Truck was a POS. Had the beautiful wondering suspension and two feet of play in the steering wheel. My father said if anyone could take the thing past 70 without wrecking, they could drive anything...

I took it to 100mph when I was about 15 on a long stretch of pavement on this abandoned road on some property we owned.

Didnt wreck, but she was all over the place.

Truck was a POS. Our 76 F-150 Ranger was a much better truck. Put about 800k on it. Only thing every changed was the oil, batteries, and the belts. Still has the factory carb, starter and etc on it.

Awsome! :D

First time for me was in shortly after we came to the USA. My dad was

working two jobs and his job at night was a Cab Driver. I was about 9,

possibly 10 and he sat me on his lap adn let me take the blue & white

(Blue Cab Co.) 1984? Dodge Diplomat for a spin around the parking lot.

It was in Roslindale right by the "Bradlees" (now out of business) and

Stop & Shop Supermarkets. It was very cool. I guess a RWD Mopar

with a baby V8 (318) is not a bad first drive.

I was a bad kid, I stole my Dad's 1975 red Ford pickup when I was 13 and my parents were gone for the weekend (clueless Aunt was staying over night). It had a three speed on the column and I couldn't for the life of me find first. I ended up hitting mailbox, but for the most part, no one was the wiser.

Mr. z28luvr... we know what's up... you were 17 before you could reach the pedals, right?

Stace... how could I ever forget the shift pattern of a 3 speed manual on the column... first is down and back... second is up and forward, and third is down and forward. Reverse is up and back. Neutral is in the middle, and you can move the lever forward and back.

First I've ever driven: 2000 Durango at 14 and a half. Started driving on a permit at 15 or 15 and a half. I got my license at 16 and a half.
