What car did you learn to drive with.
« on: March 17, 2021, 03:20:22 PM »
This became an interesting subject on another thread.

What car/vehicle did you learn to drive?

In my case it was my dad's 1970 Buick Riviera with a 455 V8 under the hood.

Mine was a 1973 Buick Regal with a 350 4 barrel carburator. That thing was huge. Plenty of room for friends but not very good gas mileage. One benefit to a new driver was that it had such a stout front bumper that if you made a mistake it would break off and bend over a street sign on a 4x4 post and not even mar the rubber. Or so I heard.

Learned to drive in my dadís 1974 light blue (very close to Glen Blue) Dodge Coronet.  318 V-8 and that car would haul a$$.  This isnít it, but looks just like it.  Lots of memories in that car....

63 Dodge - 880 Special, tan colored just like the one in the photo below. It was originally my Grandparents car.  It had a 383 V8  with a non posi rear end.  Had to put a new tire on one the rear drive wheel about once a month.  Man that thing would do amazing burn outs with smoke billowing out of the one wheel well.  It had a push button transmission on the dash board.  Thing weighed a ton.

My stepdad taught me how to drive a three on the tree in a mid 70s Ford econoline van. I took my driving test in a 75 Chevy Nova, that had been converted to a four speed manual.

High school drivers Ed car was an early 80s Dodge Aries K-car. With three students and an instructor  the K-car would have trouble topping 60mph. Maybe that was a good thing lol

Learned to drive in a 66 Cal Bug. First car was a Mazda RX3.  Not as badass as the photo but it was fun to drive and no one else had one.  Which was good..... and bad
