    So today my daughter took and passed her drivers license test. You have all been warned!!

    So it dawned on me that I took my license test in a Jaguar Xj6, today my daughter passed her test in a Jaguar XF.
    Thought the Jag connection was kinda cool.

    65 Mustang. No power steering, no seat belts, no power brakes, modded engine. What could go wrong? Well, I never crashed my car but I did crash my parents car. Lol. This was in 1984.

    86 Jeep CJ7. No top, no doors, you should have seen the guys face when I pulled around the corner and he saw what I was driving. It was pretty funny!

    1986 Chevy celebrity station wagon.


    Dad bought it used from a municipality and drove it until he found a used ‘99 mercury sable wagon for a good price, because the Celebrity couldn’t do 45mph up the hill from Bishop to Mammoth anymore.

    Dad is an engineer...he never owned anything exciting, only sensible.

    White 1987 iroc 5 speed. Myself and one other kid were the only ones who could drive a stick. The instructor and us two would just go out and fuck off for the afternoon and drive around. Everyone else had to drive Ford Tempos and Chevy Cavaliers. :)

    '75 Volkswagon Rabbit. I bought for $200 to take the test, because my $300 vega didn't run.
    It was fun, the drivers door didn't open so I had to climb over. There was barely any clutch so I mostly shifted without using it.(that really tripped the guy out that I even knew how to do that) I had my fingers crossed at every stop that I could get it in gear. When we were done the guy said I passed, but should get rid of the car.:eek:

    1965 Mustang. Started building at 14 and took my test on my birthday in it. Dad helped 100% and paid 50%. Learned a ton more than auto repair.
