    I learned to drive as a young boy with our 1966 Massey Ferguson 135 tractor...that we bought new. I still have and use that very same tractor today. It has the gas continental engine. What car,truck, tractor or whatever... did you learn to drive on.

    I learned in Grandpa's Dodge farm truck, a mid '30's Dodge. I was between 6-10 yrs. old. Learning the clutch was easy on our gravel drive, it would slip the tire rather than stall. He was real nice, he let me drive it to the manure pile and unload it every day, all by myself.

    Back when I was 14 there was a couple that lived a few blocks down from us, I passed by their place after getting off the school bus and we became friends.
    He had a Rambler and he taught me how to drive it.
    They were fun to hang out with, his wife was hot, she once was teaching me how to dance, I started being stupid and she showed me what knee to balls meant.

    With a 1944 ex army jeep in the high desert of northern Arizona. I was 15.

    Had drivers training in high school, three kids and an instructor in the car for one class period a day for a week. All told, less than an hour behind the wheel, got the certificate, and was licensed the day after turning 16.
