Thursday Twister: Learners Permit

It is Thursday, so DT’s quasi-weekly nausea inducing quiz, the twursday thister…no…that’s not right…oh yeah, the Thursday Twister.  Today’s topic is personal…what was the car that you learned to drive in?

I learned to drive in a classic Dodge Van that my father picked up in some kind of mid life crisis — he’d never had a van before, but he picked up this van with a manual gearbox and I rode around unbelted in the back for several years before I learned to drive in it.  This 74 Dodge Van here on eBay bidding for $4,950 is a few years older the family van, but it was painted in a similar shade of baby barf.

Where did you learn to turn the wheel and shift the shifter?
