Default Dad, Can I Borrow The Car?



While waiting in line at the DMV on Friday, a buddy of mine sent me a link for entertainment's purposes. "Dad, Can I Borrow The Car?" was actually filmed sometime around 1970, but I'm almost certain I was mandated to watch it in Driver's Ed in 1992. ...

I always like seeing the 32 Tudor "get away" car at 5:50 in the first part.

Thanks,

Neal

I loved drivers ed in high school . I got to drive a 1971 Mustang with a 302 . The school had a huge parking lot that was marked off like a small town . You had stop signs , parallel parking , 3 point turns back then , left and right turns and so on . there would be about 25 cars on this parking lot all driving where ever we wanted too . We were by our selfs too in the cars . They did un hook all the am radios ! We also had a machine from the early 60 that had a gas peddle and a brake . There was a seat you sat in and a TV screen you looked at . The object was to move your car up next to the one sitting still on the right . Was for depth perception ! Then we got to see the bad crash movies as well to make us learn not to drive wild when we got our license . It was during school time everyday . We even drove when it rained . Had 2 days a week of classroom time then 3 days driving . Our final test was the exam and then we had 3 guys in my group . The object was to take a map and show where you are going to drive for 45 mins . We had to drive on side streets , city streets and the highways . Each guy would lay out his route , then the next guy would start where he stopped and so on . It was a lot of fun really . I did like the bad movies of crashes and what happens .
I think it's really different today I am sure .

Back in 66' I got my license, My buddy and I was in the basement listening to the the 1964 NHRA Nationals LP Record Album on Dad's Hi-Fi,... Dad yelled down a couple times for us to "turn that racked down !!",..... We must have listened to that record 3 or 4 times,.. Both sides !

So we get this brilliant idea,... We go upstairs,.. Dad is sitting in his chair reading the Detroit News....

Me : "Hey Dad,.. Can I borrow the car ?",....

Dad: "What do you want to borrow the car for Son ?"

Me: "We just wanted to run to the Dailys Drive in for a Coke"

Dad: "And that's all ?,... straight there and straight back ?"

Me: "Yup !,.... What do ya; say Dad ?"

Dad: (Dad slowly looks over the top of his News Paper, and says)

" For the last hour and a half,.. you two have been listening to Engines racing & tires squealing, with the Hi-Fi turned up so loud, it would wake the dead,..... And I am supposed to beleive you just want to go to the drive in for a coke,........ You two must think I'm insane !,... What do you think the answer is !

A guy could have died of thrust in that house !



Cool movie, first time I seen it.

My son was a HS senior - 'Dad, can I borrow the truck to take some wood to the beach for a bonfire?' OK son - I was working a real early morning shift so off to bed early. About 1am he knocks on the bedroom door - 'Dad, had an accident but drove the truck home'. Before leaving for work at 3am, looked at the truck and there was a 60's Cadilac tailfin embedded in the side of the bed, just behind the wheel - kids!

I was driving @ 15 with my Dad riding shotgun with a learner's permit and @ 16 had my junior license. I drove everywhere, all over, and at all hours. Of course, I paid my own insurance, gas, and repairs - tough to take a girl out on a date w/$.25 in your pocket since all my money went to everything else! Never took driver's ed either - I had to go to work PT to support the car so there was no time!

Great video. Saw this on the Walt Disney Show back in the early 70's.

I saw it as a small boy in the early 70s. Thought I had made the whole thing up or not remembered it correctly until I found it on Youtube a couple of years ago.

Maybe I just imagined it but it seems that I read somewhere that Dutch did the striping scene at the beginning. That was the most memorable part when I first watched it when about 5 years old! I am hoping that a good complete copy comes available someday.

Did you also notice the kid's name was "Rex Carr"?

I saw the Disney "Dad..." episode when I was about ten, and lucked upon a VHS copy of it about ten years ago at a video store closeout sale. It's the complete version which must have been shorter originally; only way I could explain why the boy is played by a different actor in the scene with the '59 Caddy at the car wash (which is still in business, off the 101 in Burbank near the Disney studio).
