"drive" - learning to drive that is! I didn't learn how until I was at least 19 or 20. It wouldn't have mattered if I knew how to drive before then, because I wouldn't have had a car to drive! My first husband taught me in his 3 speed (on the column).... To say trying to figure out how to shift and drive at the same time was a challenge for me! But I eventually caught on and went to take my test. I can remember doing the parallel parking part of the testing (do they still make kids do that now?) and getting into the spot. I started to correct it all and the instructor yelled out - leave it - leave it - it is fine! And he passed me! I know if he hadn't said that to me, I would have overcorrected - messed it all up - and flunked big time - LOL! I can remember the joy of driving over to my parents' house - a licensed driver!
I got my own car not long after that - a 1969 Chevy Chevelle. It was gold, with black interior. I loved that car! It drove so well. Then it got creamed by a school bus. Totally deemed "totaled". I cried - alot. Then moved on and got my next car - a white Camaro (or it might have been a Firebird) - with red interior. I can never remember which - whatever I had, my sister had the other one.
What about you? When did you learn how to drive? What was your first car?
