Took my driver's test in a small town (Chowchilla Ca) in a 37 Ford pickup. Had been driving it all over for a while. Passed no problem. This was in 1958 and they had driver's ed in High School. The driver ed car was a 58 Chevy 283 with a 3 spd. We all knew how to drive already but took the class anyway. The Instructor's wife was a teacher at a school out in the country. He would have us drop him off to have coffee with her-crazy! Told us just cruise around from 20 minutes and come back. We would take turns from a dead stop popping the clutch and speed shifting-surprised we never broke it but some other guys did doing the same thing.
