    1965 My dad let drive his 1939 LaSalle. It was raining that day and the windshield wipers didn't work. The inspector got in the car and we took off. I was afraid if I turned on the wiper and it didn't work I would have to come back and take the test again. Finally he asked me if I was going to turn on the windshield wipers so I reluctantly reached down and turned on the knob. Much to my surprise they started working and they did so all through the driving test. On the way home I tried to turn them on again and they didn't work. In fact they never worked again. I guess it was meant to be.

  6. My parent's 57 Desoto Firesweep 9 passenger station wagon.
    Trooper got in with me, and I could tell he couldn't wait to see me try to parallel park it.
    I nailed it on the first shot. Then after I got my licence I had five single vehicle accidents in six months! I learned the hard way that not everyone out there is paying attention.

    Tried in a '61 olds bubbletop 88, (394/auto) but the tail light was out and they sent me home. Came back in the folk's '71 Buick Electra 225 2 door (455/auto) which was almost 20 feet long and made it through. The big honker was hard to parallel park!

    1964 Plymouth station wagon, 318, 3 on the tree, no power steering or brakes. After successfully parallel parking the beast, the test guy said" I don't care what else you do on the rest of the test, after parking this pig, you are getting your license".

  18. I took mine in a 1955 Ford two door station wagon. 272 and three on the tree. The tests were much more involved back then as compared to when my kids took theirs. I guess thats why not many younger people can drive very well anymore..;)

    October of 1964, in Dad's 1960 Dodge Seneca, /6 three on the tree. Had my learner's permit for 9 days. Made the road test appt, when I picked up the learners' permit. You couldn't get the permit till your 16th Bday. I had been driving since I was about 12, and on the road at 14 or so. I got 1 negative tick because I touched the curb backing up on the three point turn.

    68 Plymouth Fury four door. Dad said it would be easier with an automatic. Damn thing was like a boat, parallel parking was a challenge.

    Got mine in my brothers 56 Ford. I put $2.00 gas in it for him to cover the trip to town and back. That would have been about 6-7 gallons. A while back, huh!

    It was 1950, England Arkansas, I just went in a western Auto and paid 3.00 no test. I was 13 YO. Moved to Florida in 1959 and had to take a written test. In 1985, I needed a chaufer license to drive my truck, so another written test and in 1988 Florida did away with chaufer license, so I had to take another written test to get my CDL. I have never taken a driving test. I gave up the CDL this past year, because I no longer drive a truck, but they gave me my old license back just in case I want to reactivate it. LOL
