First learn to drive my dad's 62 Benz 220e when I was 14. What a thrill it was

Well, if you include sitting on my uncle's lap, I guess it would be a '49 Pontiac 2 door sedan that I used to steer down the camp road. I also remember sitting on my mother's lap and steering my parent's '54 Ford. The first car that I actually drove myself was my parent's '59 Impala.

I can't remember for sure if it was a 55 Chevy with a 3 in the tree or a 1964 Buick with auto and power everything. Maybe it was a 62 Chevy suburban with a 4 speed.

I went through a drivers training school. They used Plymouth products, I believe it was either a 1973 or 1974.

1960 Chevy Corvair. Two-speed, dash-mounted shifter. Gas heater. Bias-ply tires. No radio. Hole in the backseat floor. But I loved that little thing and about waxed it to death.
