We were recently talking about little cars at work and it made me remember a car my dad bought when I was 9 or 10 years old. My brother and I used to sit in that car (just like the one in the picture) for hours and practice our clutch, shifting, and steering skills. Of course it wasn’t running and wasn’t going anywhere.
When it was time for me to learn to drive on the road, I was ready to go! However, the first vehicle I ended up driving was my dad’s old 4-door Dodge pickup that was 6-7 feet wide and what seemed to be 20 feet long! Believe me–4-door pickups were NOT popular when I was 15.
I didn’t practice my “reverse” skills on that little Subaru, so I’ll tell you about the brick retaining wall I knocked over with the Dodge pickup another time.
