I was probably 11 or 12. We were on the back roads going to Grandpa's and out of the blue Dad asked if I wanted to drive the rest of the way. Pickup was about a 63 chevy Half ton. I immediately killed the engine letting the clutch out though I had driven our tractor many times before that.

First time I ever drove alone I was about 14. Older brother was in the army and had left his 58 Chevy at home. I discovered the spare key from Mom's 65 Impala worked in my brother' car so I drove the car a lot that summer. Short trips to the store to get pop, etc. Never did get caught but Dad did wonder why the tractor suddenly started using so much gas than before.

Both Dad's pickup and bro's 58 were 6 cyl, 3 on the tree.

I believe I was about 14. I was bailing straw and had a pick up load. I had to drive to the opposite end of the field and hook up the trailer, then pull it back to the barn. It was a late 70's Chevy 3/4 ton 4 speed. I let the clutch out about as slow as can be lol...didn't want to loose any bails and have to re-stack it.

First time I drove by myself would be shortly after I got my license at 15. The vehicle was my parent's Mercury Montego. The 1st vehicle I owned was a black 57 Chevy 2 door sedan...235 straight 6...3 speed stick on the collum.

First time I drove anything I was probably 10 or 11 years old. I used to drive my grandma's 1986 Cutlass Supreme Classic around her yard. I would be out there for hours at a time. Tunes blaring! Would always burl the tires too. I can remember getting heck from gran for tearing her yard up lol.
