1984 Dodge W150 Marksman 1000. Dad bought it new. Still have the Winchester bang bang that came with it and had matching serial number. I was pissed when dad sold that pickup a couple years before I got my drivers license

My folks had an AMC Pacer and a Dodge Aspen when I was learning, also my Dad's (now mine) '76 Power Wagon 318.

The Aspen had the 225 Slant 6, the Pacer was a factory 304 V8 car that my dad converted over to a 401. The 401 in the Pacer was ridiculously fast, tons of fun to drive!

The Aspen? Not so much. It was fine, just a basic, brown 4 dr sedan with nothing fancy about it. They ended up selling that one to my cousin.

So, most of my early driving days were behind the wheel of the 76 Dodge Power Wagon (that is now mine)

First drive was learning a 3 speed on a Model A / Tractor combo (doodlebug) on a friend's farm, then my fathers 48 Chev panel truck 6 stick honing my skills on the local cemetery roads. Finally got my learners permit and was driving the family 56 Chev wagon stick 6 on a Sunday drive when I had to stop on a steep hill and the light turned red. My father said " There is a brand new car behind us. Whatever you do don't roll back!" As soon as the light turned green and there was room in front of me, I floored it and popped the clutch, smoking 1 tire up the hill. My father said " You didn't have to do that!" I said " Well I didn't roll back did I " My father was strict, but let that one go........

I got my permit and asked out of dmv. My mom handed me the keys to her quad4 May 5spd grand am. Told me drive around the mall before hitting the road, figure out the clutch. Took off no problem, no questions. We hit the road and she said, so... When did you learn how to drive my car??? whistling It was actually a really fun car to drive, and as I got older I was always surprised at how many cars i was able to beat with it.

That and my dads 72 lemans convertible. I never really understood how he just let anyone drive THAT car.

Back in 1960, I was 10 years old. Granddad had a 1940 Dodge 3/4 ton flatbed truck, 3 on the floor, flat 6. He had a wood shop and when the saw dust-shavings got deep i shoveled them into the back of the truck knowing he would let me drive down into the back field, 1000 ft or so, by myself then empty the load into a pile. Never got out of second gear though, maybe 15 mph. Had to set on the front edge of the seat to reach the pedals. Truck was real rough, so I couldn't hurt it and the field and road going down there was pretty flat.
He let my dad drive his big Chrysler when dad was 7-8 around 1935, so no problem letting me drive later. Man I wish I had that truck now, just like it was.
