    I bought a '77 Vega when I was 12, we live on a private drive I drove up & down on. Eventually put a Buick V6 in it, but never finished it before I bought a '71 Camaro when I was 16.

    After steering on old farm roads and the highway for a couple of years, I learned to drive the '46 in my avatar when I was 11 or 12. Got my DL when I was 14 1/2, and was raising hell in my 327 '57 sedan delivery at 15. Good times!

    My dad taught me in this, his pride and joy. First 4 speed stick I learned on.
