1965 Ford station wagon with a 352 - auto on column. First stick car I ever drove & learned on was my '70 Cuda 340 that I bought in 1976. That was the first car I owned too. Aaah - let me tell you about the summer of 76!

'63 Chevy pickup. 6cyl. granny 4spd. Talk about fun on the ranch for a 12 and 13 year old! The rancher next door had a beautiful, red, '69-'70 Dodge with a V8, 3 on the tree! I only got to ride in that one. I kinda stole my brothers '74 Challenger 340 slapstick when I was 14... Ooopsy! He was actually making payments on it in 1977.

Learned driving my dad's '56 Ford 1-ton wrecker around the yard at his shop; 312 out of a T-bird mated to a granny 4-speed with a reversible PTO-winch. After I could move it across the yard, he'd send me across the railroad tracks to the stone dock on the river to drive around the rock piles. Got distracted by a boat full of bikinis once and almost drove it into the river.

He delivered newspapers, and by the time I was 15 I was driving the route on Saturday/Sunday mornings while he slept in the back seat. My mom and step-dad would have killed both of us if they ever found out...

When I got to driver's ed, the teacher found out I could drive a stick, and my job became teaching everyone in class to make a full lap of our course with 3 stops and starts without stalling. In a 4-speed K-car wagon that would stall when sitting and idling...

41 Ford Pickup with no brakes and a rotted door pillar so the driver's door would fall open if you hit a pothole while making a right turn.

We weren't supposed to take it on the paved road, but thirteen year olds sometimes forget things.

Actual drivers ed car a few years later was a yellow Galaxie 500 with a 390.

The other group had a similar Galaxie, but blue and only a 289.

FIrst stick on the street was a 53 IH pickup with a 6 and three on the tree, or a 65 Mustang 289/225 with a three speed
