I guess the first one I actually drove was my friend's dad's '79 chevette 4-dr hatchback. light blue, and with a little chrome air cleaner poking through the hole in the hood. it had a 229 v6 from an 81 monte carlo shoved in it. my buddy and I got to beat it around the yard. the first one I learned to drive a stick in was his mom's '87 s10, originally a 4cyl., but when the engine gave up, they put a 2.8 in it.


found a fuzzy old pic of the chevette:

Since I can't seem to post a pic, It was a 71 Chevrolet Impala from High School Driver Ed. Try to park a barge like that and you can get your captain's ticket

I'm still learning (I'm starting to hate how yellow lights work in my area) but the first car I ever drove was my Mum's Hyundai Elantra (2004, red, auto, 2lt 4 cylinder)
Image
This thing is slow. My mum is always getting up me because I always ease the throttle on to keep speed while going up hill, eventually i hit 3/4 throttle and the transmission kicks down. This ends with her saying "Let the car do the work, you don't need to accelerate so hard!".

The second car I have driven is my Dad's Ford Falcon (2004, White, auto, ex-telstra, 4lt straight 6)
Image
This I like more, the big 6 makes it just get up and go.

However the first manual I ever drove was a Mitsubishi Lancer. Same colour.
Image


I still need to get a job and start saving for my own car. Judging by prices I might end up with a R31 because they are cheap and rear drive here.

I was around 8 yrs old when my dad taught me, don't have an exact picture of it but it was something like this

GM Harabas
Image
1.3L Engine (Toyota 4k if I remember correctly)
4 speed manual
Body beat up to hell, whenever something broke my dad would just bust out the arc welder and find a scrap piece of metal.

We had one as a shop truck(?), I remember my dad had to stack 1 or 2 encyclopedia books under me so I could see above the steering wheel. All I did for one whole day was move forward then reverse so I can get used to using the clutch. The 2nd day he let me go around our block all by myself, I still remember how my friends gawked when the truck crawled past them and I was driving. I was such a badass back then :lol: .

First car I owned was this..

1978 Mitsubishi Galant SS
Image
2 Liter Astron engine
5 speed
twin side draft solex 40's
Welded diff

I actually inherited it when my dad passed away, had to sell it a year later due to an emergency.
